A Little Bird Told Me

What better to do in the heat, but make a Blueberry/ Sweet Cherry pie. It was short lived.
Kingbird

Bluebird
I have been seeing a lot of baby birds learning life with their parents. My feeder was empty fast this last few weeks. I wondered if this was a Thrasher baby by the rust in it's tail in the next picture. There were three hanging out in the treetops.



 Catbird



When I saw this bird just holding in the air I thought it might be a Shrike. It held in the same area for quite some time, holding like a falcon.

  3. Very nice. I love kingbirds. I tried to get photos of a little bird that wouldn't leave the under story. I swear it was just teasing me. I never got a good shot, thus I still can't identify it. Thanks for the tour. The pie sounds grand.
