Wild Bird Wednesday #246

Wild Bird Wednesday
All Seasons

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.

Friday’s Hunt v3.10

Friday’s Hunt

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!

Friday’s Hunt v2.24

Friday’s Hunt

Our prompts this week are Starts with X, Week’s Favorite, and Lights. Whose idea was it to put an ‘X’ in the alphabet, anyway? I thought a selfie of my X-hausted self might be my entry for that one–but thanks to my love of needlework, I have an embroidery sampler that includes X-stitch. (Cross stitch)

Week’s Favorite: I finally got that little yellow rump!

Lights: Town Center aglow for the holidays

The Friday Hunt is on! We are looking for YOU! Oh, that’s Starts with U, Week’s Favorite, and Nature. Bring some photos and join the fun! You can do all, or one. 

I’m Useless this week (I should insert selfie here). I’m combining Nature and Week’s Favorite with our Yellow-rumped Warbler

This is shaping up to be a busy week with Thanksgiving on Thursday. I won’t be making any new posts, but I hope to catch up reading some of yours.

I’m trying a new photo meme link-up with Eden Hills. Click the link for details, everyone is welcome to join. 

This week we have Starts with B; Week’s favorite; and Outside

Gee, let me think what starts with B. How about BIRD? (You never would have guessed, right?)

My favorite shot this week:

White-throated Sparrow

Outside:
This is one of those shots where the camera couldn’t quite do justice to the true colors in the clouds.
