I am happy to share my Eastern Phoebe photos, sitting on a wooden fence, with Theresa at Run-A-Round-Ranch for “Good Fences”.

Song sounds like a hoarse rendition of their name, such as "feeble".

~An Old Barbed Wire Fence~

Theresa, I am so excited to share a “Good Fence” post. I took these photos Sunday at Jonathan Dickinson State Park near Hobe Sound, Florida.

It looks like a very old barbed wire fence. Sitting proudly on the fence post is a Loggerhead Shrike.

a fence built with wire and old trees, 

stands along a Texas Hill Country road side,

it can be a lonely place,

for a little Lesser Goldfinch, 

until his pals show up

Waiting
Waiting! Where are they?

 

Pals are wonderful to have!
It is wonderful to have pals to share your life with!

 

We were staying at the Buckhorn in Kerrville, Texas back in April 2014 and I spotted these Lesser Gold Finches flitting around. I didn’t get the best shots of them, but of course the chase is always fun!

However, I did remember this lovely fence.

aged wood, creatively used,

constructed into a fence,

surrounds a yard.

 

filled with water falls,

feeding stations and birds,

a place where they, feel safe.
