Wild Bird Wednesday
This is what I found in my backyard this morning.
Pigeons put the WILD in Wild Bird Wednesday. They must have had a wild party while I slept. I wish I’d witnessed the feeder finding its way to the ground.
Sorry about the photo quality, there were raindrops on my window. We have wind and rain today–lots of both. Here are some shots from a drier day:

I visited the botanical garden Monday, it was warm for a change! There was still a bit of color left in the rose garden, sharing it with you today.
Please pardon the appendages, it was a windy day.

When I looked out the kitchen window this morning, a hawk sat right here:
And to its left, sat our contender.
This brave little squirrel charged at the hawk over and over. The hawk would spread its wings and lean toward the squirrel, but finally gave up and took its hunting elsewhere.
That was a good morning’s work–now where are those peanuts?
We found evidence a hawk visited over the weekend, and got one of our feathered friends. Thanks, Squirrel Hero, for sending it on its way–with an empty tummy.

Good Fences #35
Here are a couple more vacation photos with fences, gate, posts without fence(??). I’m always pushing the limits, wondering how long before TexWis boots me off the island.
These were taken at Fort Fisher, NC.

Wild Bird Wednesday and Wednesday Around the World (WATW)
Situated in the Atlantic Flyway, the lake at Mt. Trashmore hosts many migrating waterfowl.
Many are Double-crested Cormorants.
