Dearest Eileen; Wow, what gorgeous varieties of colorful sweet birdies from Lake Logan. I enlarged the collage and enjoyed them (♡^.^♡)
Nature always relieve our stress from life, doesn't it?

This year I could see some swallows. flying around.
But really SAD that they fly so fast and didn't stay even a few second.
I really appreciate your sweet comments and Have a wonderful weekend.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*

beautiful set of birds- Love the loons and the swallows in particular. The loons I rarely see as they never pass by my place. I agree, the little swaööow is adorable :)

Wish you a great week. We have to dry and hot for my taste :(

Lindos pássaros! Belas tuas fotos! Ótimo fim de semana,beijos, chica

Great series of images, Eileen. I am not quite sure how long ago these pictures were taken but I was surprised that the Common Loon was still in non breeding plumage. Our northern lakes are now well populated with loons and their cry is surely one of the signature sounds of the wilderness - well, what we still call wilderness although it is hardly that anymore. Have a great weekend.

Nothing to link, just lovely comments for all the birds, especially the blue one!

I enjoyed my time in your gorgeous state but does it always rain like that? We hardly saw the sun (or anywhere else!) and I'm longing to return -- in good weather!
