Wild Bird Wednesday
I haven’t had much to share lately, but today I snapped a much-anticipated shot and couldn’t wait to share it with you.
It’s almost time for the Yellow-rumped Warbler to tweet his final goodbye and head north. He’s changing into his spiffy new attire, ready to impress the ladies when he returns home. He’s a handsome catch! This represents the color of spring for me.
Not all that long ago, he hunkered down in the cold in his nondescript browns and blended into the wintry background. Except for that little yellow rump. I’m going to miss the constant guarding of “his” territory, the high-speed chases that ensued. Godspeed, little buddy.

Cee’s questions for this week; I hope you’ll share your answers, too!
Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?
I only know my oldest brother claims to have picked my name.
Music or silence while working?
Depends on what I’m doing, however, I’ll listen to birds singing any time.
If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?
I referred to Cee’s anwer for clarity on this question–she’s looking for what items (aside from these listed) are special.
1) Art supplies
2) Quilts handed down through family
3) My botanical garden membership (a gift from a friend)
The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?
Bungee jumping, aerial acrobatics, get control of my email, get hubby to hike overnight…
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Thankful for warm days and walks at the botanical garden, more of the same!
This week’s prompts: Starts with K, Week’s Favorite, and Drink.
K is for colorful Kure Beach, NC
Week’s Favorite–A rare visitor to our yard–Cedar Waxwing
Drink–American Robin and House Sparrow stop by for a drink after work–it’s a tough job to reclaim one’s territory in the spring.
This week we are searching for Starts with J, Week’s Favorite, and Bird or Wings
Starts with J: The Blue Jay wasn’t cooperating this week, so I snapped a shot of the Yellow-rumped Warbler on the JOB–ever protecting his territory. He’s fluffed his feathers to keep warm, and it makes him look SO MUCH BIGGER. This is my Favorite, and also fills the bill for Bird and Wings!
