  1. Hi Eileen-
    The Eastern Blue, both the male and the female are beautiful specimens and I love your pictures of them.
    The Easter Bunny is so very cute and I love the Fox Sparrow (what a lovely name!) and the grandpups too.
    Thanks for hosting.
    Have a Happy Weekend!
    Peace :)

  6. I love how you slipped your granddogs and the Easter Bunny in there, Eileen.
    Who knew a sparrow could be so pretty, that's not what I think of when I think, "sparrow" but then you really know your birds.
    There's something on my mother's balcony that's been ripping apart her outdoor carpet to make a nest, I should snap a photo and try to find out what it is.
    The capper is that the critter is making a nest in my mother's fireplace vent and in this cold weather she really misses it.

  15. The bluebird is so serene and beautiful. I will probably miss the Fox Sparrows, as they will have migrated out by the time we return to Illinois next week.

  20. First time for a fox sparrow for me too. I also see it's grand dog day. Happy Day.

  21. Beautiful bluebirds! Around here they have a lot of competition from House Sparrows, unfortunately.

    ReplyDelete
  22. An Eastern Bluebird and a Fox Sparrow in your own yard is very special. I would love to welcome either one of them!

    ReplyDelete
  23. The Eastern Bluebird is stunning, so is the picture!
    Like the female too . . . in her less noticeable blue.
    Fox Sparrow and grand dogs were another treat to see . . .
    And add a bunny . . . a spring treat for sure . . .
    (Hope the snow and ice misses you completely!)

  24. Great shots, as usual, Eileen! I love those bluebirds and I have a soft spot for doggies...
    Have a great week!

  25. Beautiful bluebirds. Great names for the pups. I've been watching for a Fox Sparrow to add to my collection, but so far they have been elusive. Have a wonderful weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  26. We've never been fortunate enough to have bluebirds nesting even though we have their nesting boxes. That's a cute fox sparrow.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Nice bluebirds and I like the Fox sparrow too wonderful to see spring animals arriving enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  28. And here we have the western blue bird that looks much the same. They stay mostly in the mountains, but may fly through here on their way. Great photos. I do enjoy your beautiful bird photography and the pups are sweeties.

  42. Nibbles and Chewy- how sweet! I love the bluebird shot- I always like to see these pretty birds, but because of my martins they don't come around very often.

    I've only seen one Eastern blue bird in Florida. They are so cute.

  44. Hello Eileen, your post gives me hope, that spring has to arrive here soon. A few (well probably all of them) birds are confused with melting snow and then another blizzard. Enjoy your weekend and grand-dogs and greenery!
