Birds at Parkwood IIhehe

The rest of the birds I've seen here are all actually going to stay here all winter.  Here they are.
Ut as Blue Jays
House Sparrows - the little flock has grown to about sixty.ir young.
Goldfinch - just a few individuals but they are brilliant yellow.
 Cardinals - furtive at this time of year, but we've seen a few.
Crows - one or two soaring past the window.
Mourning Doves - a pair that sat in the spruce tree one day.
Blue Jay -two or three dashing  about as Blue Jays do.

You may note that there are no Chickadees or woodpeckers on the list.  They are still dispersed in the forest raising their young.  Certainly  it makes a big difference to have some live creatures around outside.  Adds some iterest to our walks.

  3. You certainly have a nice place to sit and view the outside.... I love sitting on my 'throne' (recliner) watching the little birds coming back and forth to the feeders on the deck....

    Take Care, Stew.... Thinking of you --sending some really good thoughts.
    Hugs,

  4. Mourning doves breed year-round down here, they might do the same up your way and prefer to nest in conifers -- keep watching. One of these days the chickadees will reappear and really perk things up.

  5. We have noticed some small Chickadees, must be from the new hatch...also a few really small HUmmingbirds! WE love watching the birds!

  6. My mother loved to watch even woodchucks from the hospital window when she broke her hip. Wish I could bring you some critters. I'll have to just do it via blog.

  8. With the small fountain on our apartment patio birds visit regularly outside the door. Mourning doves are plentiful along with sparrows, house finch and mockingbirds. Have you tried to bluetooth your photos to your ipad or do you have cloud storage from your phone? If so you should be able to download. It is a blessing to have you back in the blogasphere!

  9. I am so glad there are green areas and trees at Parkwood, it looks like a huge facility, and covers so many areas of health care. Keep up with the birds.I am so enjoying your words again, like a huge tonic to us down here with winter lingering for a while yet.

  10. The birds are around for our/your pleasure. I'm getting such a kick out of the finches here vying for the feed. First time I've filled the feeder!

  15. As you well know birds are an unending source of enjoyment in many ways and especially when they can challenge the dickens out of a fella with a camera. I think our Ontario birds are playing and will continue to play a very positive role in your recovering future.
