Nature Walk-Out on a Limb

House Sparrow

House Sparrow

House sparrows have been been loyal backyard birds even before I put out a bird feeder. This photo of a house sparrow closes out day seven of the seven days of nature challenge that I have been participating in since invited by Desleyjane of musings of a frequent flying scientist.

There is a house sparrow couple that has been working at building a nest nearby; you can see a picture of them here. On this afternoon, the male house sparrow has taken his place in the sun, going out on a limb to survey his surroundings, and take his turn flying to the bird feeder.

I would encourage my fellow birdwatchers to take part in the challenge! My posts have been a photographic mix of birds, wildlife and flowering trees. If you would like to participate in the challenge, just post a nature picture each day for seven days and ask someone to join in the fun!

Nature Walk-Finch, Party of Two

Dinner time

Dinner time

I don’t know why I waited so long to put out a bird feeder! I was happy to see this house finch couple come by to feed at dinner time. I was amazed to see the red coloring. It’s a good thing I have a field guide because I am identifying so many cool birds that I was oblivious to before I started taking special notice of them.

I am posting this for Day 6 of the seven days of nature challenge; thanks to Desley for inviting me to participate. Today, I will extend the invitation to any interested parties to post a nature picture each day for seven days and ask someone to join in the fun.

I am also posting in response to the daily post weekly photo challenge: Dinnertime
I hope my pingbacks work.
