My neighbor and I have begun taking our cameras on our walks because we’re seeing more and more of the Spring migrating birds passing though. Last week on a longer walk to another neighborhood we spotted this guy eating those Russian Olives. Don’t they look like pearls?
They are the smallest of the Thrashers and love the sagebrush of the western states. We’re on the western edge of its breeding territory. They mimic other birds while they sing. I didn’t hear this one singing though.
I was surprised to see this one up in tree! They usually are hanging around the sagebrush and will hide in it.
I hope you all have a great weekend, and if you’re watching the game I hope your team wins.
I’m posting this a bit early because He-Man and I are celebrating our 35th Wedding Anniversary this week-end. No one is more surprised than us that we’ve been married this many years. Time has just flown by!
Regarding this image- I made it last March about this same time when the Lupine was in full bloom up on the mesa.
Our plans for this week-end? He-Man and I are going to celebrate us, and wrap ourselves up in each other, and nature over a long week-end. I’ll be offline until Monday. 🙂
May your Easter Basket be filled to the brim with goodies and love. Happy Easter!
If you don’t celebrate Easter I hope you enjoy the week-end with those you love.
