I have a passion for the outdoors and I am most happy enjoying what nature has to offer. Hobbies include photography, birding, Pickleball, astronomy, biking, and hiking. I have been happily married, for 44 years, to an amazing person.

~There have been a few House Finches hanging around this past week.

A handsome male in his breeding plumage.

His partner, not as colorful, but still pretty!

A male House Finch in black and white. I was justing playing around with this one.

~A Red-breasted Nuthatch

These little guys don’t stay still very long.

~The Black-capped Chick-a-dee

Also, hard to capture for me anyway, because they don’t stay still for long.

~There have been three Osprey flying around the house. Their nest is about a half-mile away.

~My favorite pair of Robins are building a nest in our yard.

The male taking a rest.

Happy Birding! Stay safe.
