Sunday Photo Blogging-Corrales Weekend Birds

Yesterday was a beautiful day in Corrales. I went for a short bike ride and did a little shopping, but mostly I worked in the garden. I took my camera with me as I worked.

The Western Scrub Jays and the Curve-billed Thrashers were busy at the peanut feeder behind the house.

Gambel’s Quail were enjoying the shelled peanuts that I put out on the garden wall.

The hummingbird feeders were popular with the migrating hummingbirds and a few lingering residents.

Should I have been concerned that there were Turkey Vultures circling overhead?

It’s always interesting to watch the birds around my house.

  1. Lucky birds to have found your yard with all its yummy treats!

  2. Great shots Linda! Your detail is sharp. Don’t know how much work I would get done with all the lovely birds enjoying the yard. Hope you can spend more time with camera than yard work tools–great post!

  3. Wonderful captures! I love viewing your blog because your feature birds we don’t see in the Midwest … and because your photos are fabulous! The hummingbird photos are fantastic. I also love the Curved-bill Thrasher and Gambel’s Quail chicks. Great job!

  4. Beautiful shots Linda…especially the hummers. Great captures. Love quails too. Thanks!

  5. that’s a great post of bird photos. wonder how you took the closeups of those birds which may be in constant movement always.

  6. I miss my grad school days in AZ because we don’t have these birds here on the East Coast. Gorgeous photos!

  7. Wonderful post, Linda! Great captures, beautiful bird assortment!
