From My Study Window

A glance out the window early this morning afforded us an uncommon treat --- the sighting of a yellow-headed blackbird perched in our Hawthorne tree.

Crowds of red-winged blackbirds have been bringing their young to the feeders these days, and somehow this yellow-headed fellow found his way in the crowd. He boded his time for a spot at the busy feeders! Which gave me a chance to run for the camera. 

Had to share my glimpse of heaven today.

Thinking of you and wishing you a happy Friday.


  1. You have a lovely garden!

  2. Your backyard is absolutely breath-taking!! I love that bird too..birds are something that I love to watch and listen to!!

    We had woodpeckers around all day today. Their colors were lovely. Soon as I ran for my camera they were off and gone. Blessings

  6. I did not know that there was such a thing as a yellow headed blackbird. I often saw red winged blackbirds, but this was a surprise. Thanks for sharing that beautiful photo. Wishing you a relaxing day today.

  7. Your yard and patio are fabulous!
    I wouldn't want to leave if I were you.I'd plop myself down with a good book and read until dusk.
    Never seen a Yellow-headed Blackbird. Great shot.

    I have never seen one of those here in the eastern US. Nice to see it!
