Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday! 

I hope everyone is having a great day and week. 

Start each day with a thankful heart.

"Appreciate the small stuff. You are blessed with more than your realize."

Downy Woodpecker, Pine Warbler and American Goldfinch

April 2nd I still have to keep the bird bath plugged in or it will freeze overnight. We had a slight bit of snow, sleet and rain.

  6. What a perfect quotation about happiness! That it is...true.
    We had snow on April 2nd in Finland, some 20cm.
    But now it is mostly melted and temperatures are rising.
    Enjoy the weekend!

  7. Hello. I am sorry that you are still cold. Birds use feeders, and by the way you watch them and a squirrel. We have beautiful spring at last. Have a nice weekend.

  8. So beautiful are the birds that feed from the same place. They can understand together, we humans do not! Let's be ashamed!

    Wishing you a great weekend! Hugs!

  13. Now wonderful it is to see the sunshine today! Lovely post! Thank you!

  14. When will we ever get spring. We had a heavy snowfall last night and it's still snowing this morning. Somebody just posted a Great-blue heron standing in the snow.

  15. I have some marvelous small stuff in my life.

  16. Yes ..... winter doesn't want to quite release it's grip here either. Although TODAY is beautiful!

  17. I am thankful for that beautiful yellow goldfinch in the first photo. what a POP of yellow beauty... i love all little things, and am thankful that I most of the time think about the little things. i know your birds are thankful for the melted ice in that bird bath

  18. It is just wonderful, Eileen, seeing the birds enjoy their feed.

  19. Lovely capture on birds and squirrel! Nice quotes to cheer

  20. I saw the first of my finches-turned-gold the other day. Now that is a sure sign of spring!

  21. I love seeing Woody & the Goldfinch together, Eileen!

  22. Such lovely photographs of the birds ... and I like your moon shot.

    Hope you get more spring-like weather soon.

    All the best Jan

  23. To me a woodpecker is a special visitor...rarely seen here. To see both him and a goldfinch at a feeder together is a wonderful treat! :)

  24. How nice you are to the birds. : )
    Always like your moon shots.
    Great saying.

  25. I took the deicer out of my bird bath a week or so ago..It freezes at night but is in the sun in the morning so it defrosts soon enough..Your birdies are beautiful..great pictures..Lot's of Downy's here right now..Enjoy your weekend..

  26. Lovely pictures of the birds and moon.

  27. Greetings to you Eileen from the land of blue moon parties - Koh Phangan, Thailand. I love the way your post has a blue moon in it, tonight is a black moon and a black moon party here, we're in the land of music, trance and dance!
    Is it too boring to gaze at the moon and have an early night?!
    Keep the birdbath plugged in for the little birds :)

  28. I *think* you may be right, we could have Warblers around here. I'm wondering now if the Pine Warbler is what I have thought are changing gold finches. I'll have to look a bit closer. Either way,I enjoy your pictures, and hope you have a good weekend! Today was better than yesterday, wasn't it? Take care, Eileen!
