Hello Eileen! I have so missed being able to stop by your blog and enjoy your great photos. We have the White Throated sparrow in our neck of the woods, but I had no idea what it was--Thanks for the ID!

I hope all is well with you, and that you have a great weekend!

Debbie said...

the last image of the white throated sparrow is a real winner!!! my squirrels have been laying in my flower pots, ones i use for my vegetables that i have not planted yet. they better not get too comfortable!!

the daffodils are beautiful, it looks like they are thriving in a very "natural" l part of the yard!!

have a great weekend!!!

White-throated Sparrows (and White-crowned) for that matter have returned here, and what a welcome sight they are. Very handsome birds indeed.

Always enjoy seeing birds and blooms and that squirrel is so cute too ... although they do enjoy eating the birds seeds!

Have a lovely weekend and a good new week to come.
