We had quite a bit of rain on Friday. Mr. Dickcissel took advantage of the water puddle outside our kitchen window.
This Eastern Meadowlark spent lots of time looking up. I couldn't see anything up there but clouds. I think he was messing with me.
We have several Bluebirds nesting around us. This little lady sat on the fence railing even though I was sitting on the porch. She kept her eye on me though.
When I first saw this Bluebird, I thought it was a baby. It was on the ground with its wings spread. Since then I've decided it was a hot female trying to cool off.
The morning we left for the airport, I saw the birds I've been waiting for. Painted Buntings. Early morning light kept me from getting good pics. I'm posting them anyway so my son can see what they look like. This is the male.
And this is the female.
I keep hoping they will stop by again, but no luck so far.
