A quiet place to relax and take a peek at some thoughts and images from my studio and farm. Hopefully you will find something to amuse you. Please leave a comment if it is worth your time.

First up is, of course, the Robin. A few of them stick around here all year long but now the hordes have arrived and are staking out patches on the mown lawn. I was turning some earth today and every time I turned my back they were checking the dirt for worms.
This Gray Jay pestered me all day, begging for food. They especially like cat food, I usually keep some in my pocket for this reason.
Purple finch, or is it the house finch? I just call them the red birds. This is a female and male.
Here we have Evening Grosbeaks and Red Winged Blackbird.
More red wings. I love it when they flash those colors. I used to not have any, then one year I had a young male, not fully colored. Next year I had a fully colored one. The next year there were a couple more and each year I have more. They are only here for a short time before they begin raising their young so I enjoy them as much as possible while they are here.
One of these days I will learn how to put the photos where I want them, and text where I want it. But I'm not going to let it bother me right now, I hope you can put up with it too.
