Yes Melinda, it is just so amazing how evolution works. It is mind boggling. I know this isn't a bird, but here is something else I have that blows me away. A glass frog.

Andean Cock-of-the Rock, native to the Andean cloud forest. Also the unofficial national bird of Peru. Strikingly gorgeous.

Steph, I got busy doing other things and forgot to look for Hummingbirds.  I went out several times this morning, but saw none.  I'll try afternoon when it's warmer.  I noticed the flowers are near an end, that may be why.

THose cedar waxwings are beautiful.

It is 5:00 PM and the birds wake up from their nap and sit in the arborvitae, making a lot of noise, snacking at the feeders and getting drinks. The sun is low on the western horizon, coming under my umbrella; warm, a little breeze. A lovely way to end the day. I emptied a compost bin and spread it around places that look like they need a little zip in their lives. Not much, I don't want the plants to start another burst of bloom at this time of year. We have frost warning for this weekend for low areas (that is where I am). 
Hundreds of Sun Gold tomatoes still green on the vine and we eat them as fast as they ripen. The Stupice have produced nicely, but half are still green. I have an old quilt my grandmother made and has many of the old coats we wore when I was a child; she  later used it on her tomatoes. We get another season from that old rag  treasure.

More Cedar Waxwings

Comment by Steph S. on September 8, 2012 at 11:04am

I love Cedar Waxwings and saw a whole tree of them during winter migration! What a most beautiful site!

Comment by Steph S. on September 8, 2012 at 11:03am

Idaho Spud did you see any hummingbirds?

Booklover those are great! Thanks so much for posting the pictures. It's ok if the pic is the same - no worries.

So how is everyone doing this morning?
