YRW dance, Spotted Towhee and Woodland Garden

Yesterday there was a tap-tap on the front window! It was the Yellow-rumped Warbler ~ although I didn't get a photo, I did see his performance which I have aptly named the Yellow-rumped Warbler dance :)



This morning a Spotted Towhee was perched on the edge of the birdbath. Here he is before taking off for the Pink Dogwood Tree that is just starting to flower.

A walk down to the woodland garden this afternoon was just perfect. There were so many blossoms and trees sporting new spring growth, it was quite magical.



...and I stitched a few images together of this very tall tree where a pair of eagles have been nesting in each year.

I have baked a couple of cakes and will be heading south for my brother's birthday tomorrow.

  1. Lovely birdy photos here Glo. I think with the Robin peeking in your window and the Yellow-rumped Warbler tapping on it that it won't be long before you have a whole lot of birds sat around your dining table enjoying your cakes, after all, judging by your header, the YRW is ready for a formal dinner party ;) Now, there's an idea for one of your very creative posts!

    I also enjoyed your 'yellow' post, so bright and cheerful. I loved the Wilson's Warbler but unfortunately your link to further info seemed to be empty :(

    I hope you enjoy the birthday celebrations. I'm sure your brother will enjoy the cakes :)

  2. Thanks for your lovely comment, ShySongbird! I think a formal dinner party sounds like fun! I must let my muse see what it can come up with! I wonder what would be on the menu?

    I have fixed the link to the Wilson's Warbler, so thanks for letting me know about that.

    I have made a chocolate 3D car cake and a banana coconut pecan cake for the journey today :)

  3. Your warbler is getting friendly!
    That woodland walk sounds rather nice.
    Enjoy the weekend! Flighty xx
