    • Thanks Kelly, we are having heat waves this week, and it is getting hotter, not good for the birds. Our bird bath has been used continuously today one species after another, I was just filling it up again, and a magpie waited for me to fill it, and then jumped in as I walked away. I am concerned that bird numbers have been much lower than usual for spring and summer here, so like your cold winter and fewer birds so it is with extreme hot days. You have a wonderful blessed Christmas also with family, as we step into another new birding year and set out goals for lifers we would like to see.

  1. Beautiful birds and captures, Ashley! You prove you don’t have to go deep into the woods to find such a variety. There’s a nice man-made pond behind a large department store and next to an apartment complex where I love to look. I even found a lifer there! Thanks for sharing these and may you and your wife have a blessed Christmas!

    • Thanks Donna, that is true, sometimes they are just down the road, which is great! It is good to know those special birding places near home where we love to go to and have a quite look, you never know what might turn up. Have a truly wonderful Christmas and New Year Donna with hubby and family. may the Lord enrich and gladden your heart with much joy and thanksgiving as we remember his blessings from the past year and look forward to the coming one.

  2. I love the sounds of the bell miners, such a melodic chime. I remember walking in a national park hearing them all around me, it was like surround sound. And perfect to hear at this time of year! 🙂

    • Thanks Sue, yes it is so melodic and loud, it amazes me how such a small bird makes such a loud sound so easily, as they constantly call to one another and define their territory. We find them in pockets of rainforest in community/family groups, raising their young together.

    • Thanks so much Tiny, may the Lord bring blessing to you this Christmas in a way you never thought possible through your family. This year will be a quiet one for us as many of our children will be elsewhere this year, but we will enjoy our quiet little gathering regardless. Richest Blessings dear friend!
