I haven’t shared any of the birds I’ve been seeing lately so thought I’d share some of the birds I’ve seen in the last month or so .

Golden Eagle
Mama Owl in her nest.
Downy Woodpecker-Female
Pinyon Jay
Phainopepla-Female

The Yellow-headed, and Red-winged Blackbirds are back, and I’ve seen several Robins, and some water birds, but I’ll share those soon.

The weather has warmed up so we’re turning the sprinklers back on, and breaking out the outdoor cushions this week-end, and setting up my new birdbath!

I hope you all have a lovely week-end!

  1. Oh I really enjoyed seeing these fantastic bird photos, Deborah. The phainopepla is a prize to find, and the pinyon jay, oh that is just super. Great owl and Downy w-p too, and a golden eagle! Quite a bonanza here.

  2. I’m reading this sitting on the porch, first time this year. Hello spring and our beautiful feathered friends. Love the golden eagle!

  3. Certainly sounds like Spring there Deborah, and the new birdbath is a wonderful edition. Loved your showcase of birds, and the new seasons arrivals. Our birdbaths continue daily to give us so much enjoyment and pleasure watching our local birds, which we have come to know and love, and they have come to know us. It is so lovely to hear the male and female magpie sing together for us during and after their baths.

  4. I’ve never seen an eagle, Deborah! Your photo is gorgeous. I’ve only seen a hawk. More and more birds show up as the weather is warmer. I need to get my camera out. Thank you for sharing the photos.

  5. Hi, your photos are gorgeous! I haven’t seen a Golden Eagle in a long time. While visiting, Salida and Buena Vista when we had friends that lived there, I would see the Pinyon Jays. I truly admire the black and white owl photo! Hope you enjoy your weekend.

  6. Excellent work, Deborah! Looking at these on a cold, rainy day is an extra special treat. Hope you have a great weekend as well!

  7. The photo of the golden eagle in flight is stunning, Deborah. I love the owl in the nest, too. I still haven’t seen an owl in the wild. We have Downy Woodpeckers, but I’ve never seen a Pinyon Jay or a Phainopepla, both pretty birds and excellent photos. I hope you have a great weekend.

    1. The Pinyon Jay lives out here where there are Pinyon Pines, and Phainopepla lives in the Southwest. I was lucky to see that one while out walking in the canyon behind my son’s place while I was looking for wildflowers or I wouldn’t haven’t seen it either. It’s only the second time I’ve seen the Phainopepla so I was pretty excited and I saw a pair! The male was hiding in the leaves and wouldn’t come out for his photo op. 😀
      Thank you so much, Dan! I hope you have a great week-end as well!
