Backyard Birds

coming in for a landing

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you'll know I love birds...
For the longest time we've had these painted birdhouses teetering on the edge of the deck railing.
One day I noticed that some birds were filling up the insides with leaves and sticks and things. So we nailed a block of wood to the side as a quick remedy to the howling winds and storms since they kept falling off~ (which is why the scrap block of wood still has a SKU on it and is not very pretty ;)
Sometimes this little bird flies by while we sit outside.
Today as I was outside taking photos of my new 'tea bag', I noticed that the little bird kept trying to go back into the house. Finally after much patience, I was able to snap a few photos.
If you look carefully you'll see (S)he(?) has a worm.

look, she has a worm!

she goes up under the roof instead of in the front 'door'

out she comes

one last check before leaving

What's really funny is that the pouch I was photographing while all of this was happening, has a bird with a worm in it's beak!see?

P.S-does anyone know what kind of bird she is?

Sorry I am not good at bird ID but they are lovely photos! Just wanted to say thank you so much for my lovely package which arrived yesterday - the little bag is absolutely lovely, and so beautifully made - thank you!

These are beautiful shots! What a coincidence that the bird's happenings match your cute new bag!
Lovely to capture such lovely instances.

Thanks for the sweet comment on my SMS giveaway post! Sorry, that not everyone
could win!
I posted the winners on my blog and also emailed them ...

If you would like to order some buttons I would be happy to custom-make some
for you. Because the toadstools seemed to be the most popular I will include
a free toadstool button or toadstool sewing pin (you can choose) with every
order placed until the 15th of June 2011.

Wishing you a great day and hope to "see" you again on my blog sometime!
