Birds in 2011


The bird images of 2011 were all taken in the garden of the yellow house. 
They bring us much joy.





The hummingbirds steal the show, I realize, but all the birds are beautiful, special, and welcomed by us. Taking photos of the hummers builds character by the way, so if you need some more character just wait out some hummers and start snapping.

may joy and peace surround you

  7. Your pictures are awesome. I have never caught a picture of a bird, my camera is just not good enough for that, so I am always amazed and happy when I can see such great pictures on a blog. Great job, Olive!

  14. We seldom see a hummer out here in hot, dry West Texas. They are, by far, my favorite bird.:)

  17. Hi, there. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your photos here, both of the birds and flowers. What an interesting, happy blog you have.
    I came over from ""The Boston Lady out of curiosity, about Clovis. I thought Clovis might be a very large dog.I have a very large ginger coloured cat who looks abit like Clovis.
    Does Clovis not like other cats?
    Cheers!

  20. @Brenda, my cat, Clovis is so attached to me and so spoiled I fear for any cat we would add to the household. He is jealous of our daughter but he is gentle with her.

  25. Your pictures of the little creatures are beautiful! My husband is a huge bird watcher and is always putting some kind of feeder out to attract them!

    We don't have as much luck with the hummingbirds but he keeps trying!

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Happy New Year to you!

  32. I love to watch the birds in my yard too. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the photo of your cardinal because we don't have them in California and I miss them terribly. Your photos are magnificent.
    I wish you and Joe and your daughter a wonderful New Year filled with many, many blessings.
