Birds galore and a turtle to boot! It must be spring!!!

I have been sadly lacking when it’s come to posting here on my blog.  Although I have been busy quilting away!  And birding.  Which I seem to find myself doing more and more lately!  Any excuse, right?!  LOL!  Here are some pictures I’ve taken over the last few weeks.  I was thrilled to find a new bird for my collection (pictures) yesterday at a local park!

I’ll start with them first!

????????????????????????????????????

These are two female and male Hooded Mergansers I took pictures of yesterday at a local park.  I went back today because none of my pictures came out worth a darn!  Today’s were much better…

DSC_1709This was a few weeks ago out at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge.  The little black and white duck like birds are Common Goldeneyes.

DSC_1856These are Northern Pintails in flight.  I love the mountains here!

DSC_1900This is a Horned Lark.  I love his horns…  They look like a bad toupee.

DSC_1914It’s sleepy time out at the Fielding Garr Ranch.  This Great Horned Owl wishes he weren’t so photogenic!

DSC_1938This cute little Song Sparrow sings it’s little heart out…

    Love the photos! Ah..wish I could go outside today, but I’ve been sick and I’m just glad to be feeling better today. Your photos are like going to the park…except there’s no bison or mountains around here. Haha! The little sparrow is so cute, and I love the photos of the mountains.

    Gorgeous pics. The bison with the birds atop is especially cool.
