Backyard Wild

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

It was just a dusting of snow.
A thin blanket covering the front yard,
where all was calm...
 all was peaceful...

The back deck too,
covered in a thin blanket.
The sun breaking through the clouds,
and things were getting wild...

A feeding frenzy ensued,

a backyard wild,

birds of all kinds began darting in and out...

Five here, do you see them?

Still a little snow falling,
all puffed up and trying to stay warm...

It is a joy watching the birds coming quickly
and going just the same...

Watching the Chickadee's take one seed at a time,
then darting off to a close by branch to crack the seed open,
and darting back again for just one more...

Sweet songs,
beautiful birds...

This little fella had no tail feathers...

I see you see me?...

O Lord my God, You are very great...
He sends forth springs in the valleys;
They flow between the mountains;
They give drink to every beast of the field...
the birds of the heavens dwell;
They lift up their voices among the branches.
Psalm 1: 1-12

  1. Gorgeous birdies! Nothing quite as pretty as the cardinals, especially against the snow. You are doing a great job with new camera, friend :)


  2. So lovely! Your bird photography is stunning! A lot of these below in a frame on on a calendar.

  3. Your birds are so lovely. It is so nice to see and hear birds singing - ENJOY! Your snow looks wonderful - winter. But I am so very ready for spring to come. I know I shouldn't wish for time to pass and I am not - I am just wishing spring would come a little early this year. Enjoy your birds!

  4. Wonderful and I are on the same page..I love nothing more than feeding the birds and squirrels in the winter and enjoying the show. Your photos are wonderful!

  5. Thank you for feeding the birds--we are "iced in." It is beautiful but we are supposed to get strong winds tomorrow which will probably mean falling tree branches and power outages--enjoyed your photos and scripture!

  6. Cindy your yard looks so pretty covered in a thin blanket of white! We always feed our feathered friends too...the hubby made sure their feeders were full today because we're expecting about a foot of snow tomorrow and even more over the weekend!

  7. You got some great pictures of the beautiful birds! We are feeding ours each day too. It's a little show in our backyard ... without that snow. :)

  8. I love this! How lucky you were to have so many feathered friends snacking and letting you get great photos of them. I rarely see so many cardinals at one time.

  9. The birds look beautiful in the snow, so bright and pretty as they get their food! Nature's miracles are amazing, and we are so lucky to have these sort of things as part of our livers experiences!

  10. Cindy, those are stunning photographs and those birds are just so beautiful that they take my breath away! Beautiful scripture!

  11. Your photography is beautiful..........a breath of fresh air in the midst of a long, cold winter!! The scripture is perfect as well. Thank you for a lovely post!

  12. Your photography is beautiful, capturing such lovely subjects and scenery! It brings a breath of fresh air to a long, cold winter, even for us in the South. Thanks for the perfect scripture as well!

  13. You Photographs are so pretty Cindy! It's so tempting to frame them up! Thanks for sharing these gorgeous views with us!

  14. Hi Cindy,
    Beautiful photos! I wonder what happened to that poor bird with no tail feathers? Have you seen a cat running around with red feathers hanging out of its mouth? Just kidding, at least I hope so.
    Take care,

  15. Pure beauty. Birdseed is such a blessing to birds with snow on the ground. They're just beautiful creatures.

  16. Hello Cindy, love love this post. The pictures are beautiful. Truly a peaceful capture. What kind of camera do you use? Blessings, Karen acapecodnest

  17. My mom always loved Cardinals so I enjoyed looking at your pictures so pretty. I tried feeding the birds here but a certain squirrel always destroys my feeders! Again thanks for sharing.

  18. OH my goodness...amazing beautiful birds. And what great shots you got of each and every one of them!


  19. How pretty, Cindy! You've just convinced me to get a birdhouse :)

  20. What gorgeous pictures of the birds in the snow. You did a great job capturing these moments!
