I could barely see him, early morning and he seemed to be the same color as the tree limbs. He looked toward the rising sun, and his colors flashed for just a moment. This is his favorite broken tree branch, from this point he can see other hummingbirds trying to have a sip at his feeder. He chases them off and returns to his perch.

This little Ruby Throated male hummingbird sits out on a dead limb of our decorative plum tree. He's a regular visitor and comes and sits there every night at about 6:30. He's a little afraid to come to the feeder when we are out there, a bit shy I guess. What strikes me about him is the very tiny size. He must be a young one. So cute!

The Hummingbirds have returned to the midwest, and this little one was leaving the feeder. I thought the way she posed her feet was cute. So here she is, I hope she is nesting nearby.

I was all set to paint this Iris in its traditional form, standing upright in the garden. I instead decided to pick it and place it in the sun. I loved the way it looked there; like it was relaxing with me on the deck on a warm sunny May day.

Just when I thought these birds left the area for their summer home in northern Ohio, and Michigan, I saw one this morning at the feeder. So here he is, sitting in a tree after feasting on sunflower seeds.

These little birds have left my yard but not before I painted and sketched them several times. So, the interesting surprise about them is the bright red under the wings which you only get to see when they are in flight. I never did spot a female.

Sometimes the day just brings you a great surprise. I am a member of a  local birding group on Facebook. Everyone was posting their pictures of the male Rose-breasted Grosbeak. I have never seen one,  so I went and googled how to attract them to my feeder. I got up and went to the window and there he was on the feeder! I was so excited I nearly tripped getting my camera. So, they came and fed, and I watched and watched. I wondered why I have never seen them before. I don't know the answer to that but I do know they migrate north. I was never able to spot a female.
I've watched the feeders on and off all day today, but I think they have traveled to northern Ohio and Michigan. I hope they stop by on the migration south this winter, I will be watching for them :)

I usually find house sparrows at my feeder, then I noticed this pretty little White Throated Sparrow. A little shy, it came to feast on a few sunflower seeds. Such a pretty little bird!

This little puppet has been with our family for many years. We bought it at a craft fair when the kids were small. Somehow it never quite made it to the dumpster, and somehow I think that's a good thing. I know some wonderful little people who still enjoy this raggedy little puppet. I think they are taken with the way the wood feet clip clop on the floor, when they try to make him walk.
