Looks Who's Back

I am thankful to see the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak return to my feeders. 

A female cardinal and the grosbeak share a little space on the feeder filled with safflower seeds. 

The Ruby-throated hummingbirds have also returned to my feeders.

Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

  1. Hi Judy, I would be excited to see this gorgeous specimen in the feeder too! Great snaps (how do you do that). Your blog is looking great........loving the header.

    1. Thanks Emily, my feeders are just off my back deck then I use a camera with a zoom.

  2. Hello Judy, it is wonderful seeing the spring birds return. I love your RB Grosbeak and the sweet hummer. Wonderful photos. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your day and weekend!

  4. sure have some colorful visitors!

  5. what a superb camera and taker

  6. I haven't seen that kind of grosbeak! Wonderful!

  7. Wonderful! Beautiful!
    We saw a pair of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks at our feeders a few days ago. I wish they would stay the summer with us, but no, they are on their way farther north.
    Love seeing the Hummingbirds, too!
    Hope you are having a great week!

  8. Love the Grosbeak. Wish one would stop by here. The hummingbirds are so much fun to watch. One came up and hovered next to the window staring at me. I went out to fill the feeders and checked to see the sugar/water level. It was empty. I think he was complaining to me about the service. I filled it and now he seems happy.

  9. I’d be beyond excited Judy! Beautiful birds all...I’ve never seen a rose-breasted!

  10. You got some awesome shots! I especially love the first one of the grosbeak!

  11. Oh wow...I have not seen a grosbeak or hummer yet...I have my feeder up for the hummer and all the other feeders too.. Michelle

  12. Wow! Stunning images. Happy that your Grosbeak is back. The hummers are amazing. Happy Spring!

  13. Hummers for me, but no Grosbeaks this year. Makes me sad! Thanks for linking up today!

  14. Hello again!
    Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog.
    To answer your question about the bluebird houses. They should be mounted 3 to 6 feet off the ground. Have you noticed bluebird houses mounted on pasture fence posts? That is about the right height.

  15. What special birds to see at your feeders!

  16. loved to see the grosbeak and the hummer :)
