Put a Bird on It!


Admittedly there is not much of a fence to see in this post - the fence is only a prop of which we see just little parts. It's my backyard fence that is just the background for the birds who love to come to my garden. Like the California Towhee in the top photo. He - or she? - likes to sit on the fence and its posts.


And so does the Junco...


... who also likes to pick at the feeder hanging at the fence.


The golden-crowned sparrow likes to frequent the feeder as well...


... and also likes the view from top of the fence.


Of course, there's also the squirrel who likes both the fence and the feeders....


I'm linking up to Theresa's Good Fences!

The pretty birds gives the fences a glimpse of a look
and the squirrel
is the star on full fence.

Where there are bird feeders, there are squirrels, right? Great bird pictures, as well as the fence.

What fun to see these birds up close! Love the angles in the first photo.

What a smart fence to attract all those birds and a squirel ... only one squirrel? how do you manage that. At my feeders there are many and there seem to be more each year :) Your pictures are lovely and I see some birds that I don't see around my feeders ... that is always fun. Very Nice, Carola ...

Feine Vogelbilder hast Du da von den Zäunen gemacht :) Und ein süßes Eichhörnchen ist auch dabei :))
Übrigens, liegen kann ich, gehen geht, sitzen gar nicht. Da es mit Gehen so leidlich ging, wollte ich wenigstens raus. Aber noch vor dem ersten Treppenabsatz musst ich aufgeben, Treppen gehen überhaupt nicht! Geh auch gleich wieder auf die Couch :))

Hab noch einen feinen Tag

Sweet birds sitting on your fence. It's neat that you have a nice perch for them. Also an adorable little squirrel.

Liebe Grüße - Monika

Beautiful birds on Lovely fences

Cheri said...

Your images are so clear and beautiful! Are you using a telephoto lens or are you really able to get so close?

EG CameraGirl said...

I love it that you have so many birds in California that are similar to ours east of the Rockies...but different. ;)

Bethany Carson said...

That looks like a well fed, happy, and healthy squirrel! Enjoyed your selection of birds!
