Bluebirds, Robins, Hawks...Oh my!
Friday, February 24, 2012
Yesterday we went back to the field where the Bluebirds are. It is so relaxing out there. It's near homes, but yet the field is so big you have solitude. We started driving up the dirt road when at least 100 Bluebirds took off, and started flying all over.
Some of the birds were standing on old springs etc., what ever they could find.
Now this surprised me. I took pictures of Bluebirds off in the distance, using the zoom lens. There were 4 of them on a shrub. After I got home, and downloaded the pictures I realized the two birds in the middle were not Bluebirds at all. They might be some type of Finch. Also I have seen these birds at my home. I have pictures of them in one of the trees. I haven't been able to find out what type of birds they are. One has red tones on the head, the other one has yellow and red. Interesting!
There was a Hawk flying around then landed on one of the towers.
We hit the road and started driving towards home. The Highland Steer was out.
Then we came across a Red Shoulder Hawk.
Almond trees in Leona Valley
Today we saw Robins.
There are Bees all over the blossoms on the trees. I was trying my hardest to get a picture of a Bee on a blossom. They just don't stay still long enough lol. However, I was happy with the pictures of the blossoms.
I decided to go out in the backyard, and I heard Bees on the Willow Tree. Alas, I finally got a picture of a Bee!
Dove in our backyard
Oh yea, one last thing. We went to my Daughters beauty school today because a long time friend, that went to school with her, graduated today . So I took a pic of my Daughter while we were there. One of her school friends cut my Daughters hair. I thought it turned out cute!
