Painting has always made me happy. Enjoying being Volunteer Artist-in-Residence at Arlington Court National Trust Devon
Oh cool. Our birds are all staking out their rentals for spring too. This is either a Purple Martin or a violet green swallow I believe.. cant tell since its not that close. we have the Violet green swallows around us. They love these type of boxes.
Sounds like you have really interesting birds there Cris. I need to look up Purple Martin's and Violet green swallows. We do have Martin's and Swallows but they certainly haven't the colourful names yours have. I always have trouble recognising the difference between ours they are very similar.
spring has sprung!
It certainly seems to :-)
Sure hope Hamish doesn't find her! ;)
He's being kept away - just in case :-)
I just spend a good time catching up with your blog! I always love reading about your trips. Spring is in the air, birds are busy here too, great pics!
Hi Judy, glad you have enjoyed reading and seeing the pics from our trips. Yes, it really does feel like Spring is starting...about time, lol :-)
Good luck to the blue tit family! It is lovely to see the birds in pairs now, getting ready for spring.
Spring, that sounds so good :-)
