Florida is definitely a wonderful word ! I like a lot our shots of he baby woodpecker ! Here, black birds built their nest in the hedge. I just saw three blue eggs and now the poor father is flying all the day long to feed Mrs blackbird !

I envy you this rich birdlife around you. Gorgeous shots. :)


These great photos look just fine to me! We now regularly see birds that normally fly back north for the winter taking up residence here. Especially Canadian Geese.

People in MN are opening up their cottages for the season. Are those huge Florida Mosquitos chasing you away?

I'm afraid to say that I'm migrating the wrong way for a few days, from Florida to 100++ degree Phoenix! However it will be comforting to see our relatives and enjoy the change in habitat.

Great to see all of the flickers - they are a good looking bird.

Take care on that drive!

Cheers - and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M


That would be quiet a TV show for my cat Arthur ! We have a woodpecker around, I can hear it, but never saw it !

Hope your migration goes well! Lovely bird shots.


Great shots of the birds. I love flickers. I love all birds for that matter but flickers are a special favorite.

Oh I love woodies. So cute to watch the
baby" being fed, it's almost as big as the parent!


I love watching babies being fed...safe travels Sallie... Michelle


Those babies are just darling! Looking forward to a wave as you stop in Longmont (or is it) Loveland (or maybe Boulder) on your way through Colorado.

What a great variety of birds! Nice shots!


I've never seen a baby red-bellie so I'm envious. A sweet shot that is.

When are you leaving Sallie? Stay safe. Looking forward to seeing the places you'll visit.


Sallie, great variety. I always love the woodies and the flickers. The Ibis are cool birds too. I wish you safe travels back to Oregon.


You have quite a menagerie down there! It's fun to have so many birds close. We've got a bunch in our backyard, bushes and trees - cardinals, morning doves, sparrows, etc.

Years ago we lived on the 2nd floor of a 4 unit condo in Ft. Lauderdale...and we had woodpeckers in the palm tree right outside a side window. Drove us nuts with all the pecking! :)


What a nice variety of birds, they are all beautiful! Great photos :)


love the flickers! great to see the red-belly babies, too. they always look so bald without their head red. :)


A nice variety of birds to see before you leave for the north. Safe travels!

Thank you Phil for catching my error... I said migrating north for the winter when I met summer! I fixed it. Living in Florida where it's warm all winter makes it easy to get my seasons confused ;>)!

I never heard of anyone migrating north for the winter Sallie. Enjoy your trip north and the birds you see on the way.
