Birds & Squirrels…

So if it’s Sunday night it must be time to post some Mosaics for Mosaic Monday with Mary at Little Red House and something blue for Blue Monday with Sally at Smiling Sally.

We’ve had a regular flock of these Evening Grosbeak finches at our bird feeder.

And then Mr. Bluejay visits once in a while shooing everyone else away!

And then this trapeze artist really kept me entertained!

Hope your new week is starting out nicely. I’m hoping to get around better this week as things are finally getting organized around here from our move…

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. Too funny! It’s always a challenge to keep the squirrels from the feeders – one we’ll soon be facing as the squirrels are beginning to appear this far up in the hills. Until this spring we’d never seen any up here.
    I love that Jay!

  2. I love seeing the variety of birds at the feeder…..but we have no squirrels where I live. Your visitor is quite an acrobat, isn’t he? Funny!

  3. Hi Ellen! Oh, this is funny! You know what? I do believe this is just part of a squirrel’s job! They seem to do this every time they see a bird feeder. You’ve made some great mosacis.
    Be a sweetie,

  4. Beautiful birds, Ellen. I have so many feeders out and they are always empty cause we have so many birds and I can’t keep up refilling them. Your pictures reminded me to refill them again….Christine

  5. Beautiful mosaics Ellen! Squirrels are so resourceful that I can’t help but laugh when I see them trying to gather seeds at a bird feeder. Glad to hear you are settled in!

  6. Wow…your Bluejays are quite different from ours….very pretty. And that is GREAT that you caught the squirrel on it’s trapeze act.

  7. What vibrant blue in that finch. We get plenty of yellow finches but the blue is so striking. those pesky squirrels!!!!! happy blue monday

  8. Ellen, I love that trapese artist! LOL! What a scream! 🙂

    And the birds are so pretty. Lovely post.

    Happy Blue Monday to you…

    XO,

    Sheila 🙂

  9. What fabulous pictures! I have never seen a blue-jay before-they are so pretty! You have some beautiful animals in your part of the world-thanks for sharing them!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.

  10. We had squirrels in our yard all the time when we lived in Louisiana. They were constantly at the bird feeders so I decided to set up a feeding station just for them….lol It was not the best decision I ever made because they would eat all of their food and still ate the birds food. Beautiful mosaics.

  11. These are all such beautiful mosaics of great shots! I so enjoy my bird feeder (well, maybe not the thieving little squirrel although his antics are fun). You did a fine job putting these together. They are really lovely mosaics!!!

  12. I sure enjoyed your delightful Mosaics – in glancing back at others I see you have taken some fantastic shots of birds – Wonderful and entertaining photography. Thanks !

  13. Oh how wonderful! I’m really taken by the first for those yellow and red combinations! Thank you for visiting and commenting on my humble offering. (It’s taken me all this time to associate EllenB with “The Happy Wonderer”…wonder what’s wrong with me!)

  14. Wow, you have unusual looking bluejays; they have black heads! Quite different from the ones I saw growing up in Connecticut.

    As a kid, I trained the chickadees that visited our feeder to eat sunflower seeds out of my hand … which took a lot of patience, and a steady arm held straight out in front of me as I inched closer to the feeder each day. One day, after they had gotten used to my perfectly still presence right next to it, I left the feeder empty but my hand was full of seed. If they wanted to eat, they had to land there … and, after a few nervous “buzzes” around my hand, they finally did! Eventually I didn’t dare leave the house without sunflower seeds in my pockets.

  15. Beautiful bird pics! We enjoy feeding the birds too. Especially the little finches and pretty hummingbirds. Have a great week!
