    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the wonderful bird names that accompany your stunning photos ... particularly Caroline Wren, of course!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. that´s some dark clouds in your sky. But that is great as a change. Poor molting bluejay. Can´t be fun even if it is natural.

    My stay in OAHU was, for the most part, great. But difficult to get good shots as the light is too bright and hard. As expected I did not see many birds but those I have is very sweet. :) You will se them eventually.

  46. Beautiful birds and flower bush! You have so much nature around you!

  47. Hello Eileen,
    Sorry, I haven't been much present on the blogosphere lately!
    Much catching up to do!
    The Royal terns and White ibises are fantastic, birds I won't see in France!
    Great posts!
    Your Bluejay looks funny... He reminds me of a couple of my parrots plucking their feathers!!
    Happy sightings, keep well!

  48. So funny! Have never seen a wild bird molt!! Chickens do - so why not wild birds!! Funny looking!
