Nesting Season

I’m not as discipline  in posting as I used to be, and it seems like I’m catching up in posting my photos.  Some of these photos were taken almost three weeks ago,  but I guess posting it late is better than never.

It’s nesting season for the birds in our area, this mother Robin built her nest in my Ivy patch on the lower right hand side.

The Ivy is beautiful, but it’s a nightmare when it does take off.  It’s also climbing the big tree in back of the garden.  I do want to save this big tree, and will have to remove the Ivy vines after the robin eggs hatched.

It’s a perfect spot for the nest, I just hope the mother Robin will get used to me gardening every evening.

My bok choy is flowering, I still have a few to harvest.

My blueberry bushes are flowering, this one I only see a few flowers.

And they are beautiful.

Another nest is in my front porch, and this one is a Dove. The mother Dove is not used to us going in and out of the house and she is easily scared.

I don’t know if it’s in the water, Bo’s Jack Dempsey laid another batch of eggs.  Bo had to rush about 40 mature Jack Dempsey to the pet shop before they eat all the eggs.

My sister’s lovebird also laid 3 tiny eggs, but we are not sure which one is the mother since she doesn’t sit on her eggs. As I was writing this post it darned on me that I didn’t take a picture of the eggs.

The Cherry blossoms were taken at my dad’s house about 2-3 weeks ago.

Pear blossom

I do miss Biltmore Estate tulips, and need to plant some in my garden.  My sister planted hers 2 years ago, and they come up every year.

Photos were taken with 5DMkIII, Canon 24-105mm f/4L lens , and EF70-200mm f/4L USM lens.

Nesting Robin

I thought that was a rather large baby Robin when I saw her 2 days ago, but it was the mother Robin nesting her eggs. Bo said that there are 4 eggs in there, I only saw 2, and 4 is a strange number because I had only seen 3 eggs in the past.

This was at 7:30 this morning, the mother a father kept a watchful eyes over us. I think this one is the father, he has a darker and deeper color chest.  The animal male specie is more beautiful than the female.

This one is the mommy Robin, she wasn’t happy when I went near her nest.  I won’t go near it again until the eggs hatch.

It was difficult to get a clear shot, they were too far away.
