More Beauty At My Place

When I saw one of these beautiful birds in my yard for the first time I was in awe of it. I had never seen a bird like it…not even in a picture. After getting the camera and capturing a few pictures I checked the Arkansas Bird website to see what kind of bird it was.

I must say that I have been thrilled to have seen several of these beautiful grosbeaks in my yard over the last few years.

  2. Lovely Grosbeaks!!!! We used to have them here. Once in a while a few come thru’ from somewhere. they are so pretty.

    1. Thank you my sweet friend. I am glad you have seen them in real life…photos do not do them justice. Hugs

  3. Wow, that’s another bird I don’t think we’ve ever seen here! Thank you for sharing, Maggie!

  4. I saw them when I first moved here but not lately. They must be all at your house.

    1. Not this year. The pictures I posted were from the past few years. I no longer feed the birds so I don’t see as many different kinds now as I did when I fed them.

  5. I’ve never seen one in person but I think they are so pretty. God surrounded us with so much beauty! I’m on a blog break but plan to return very soon. Have a blessed evening. xoxo

  6. truly beautiful birds, I have never seen one and did not know what it was until I read your post. wow

  7. Beautiful! I’m always amazed at the beauty you find in nature Sweet Sis šŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing your corner of the world-hugs ā¤

  8. They are indeed beautiful birds. I have seen some grosbeaks in my yard before but I can’t remember if I saw that type. There are so many different types.

    I have stopped feeding the birds because the wildlife department has asked people to stop feeding the birds in our province as they are getting an avian parasite called trichomoniasis that prevents them from swallowing and they get sick and die. Infected birds spread the parasite in their saliva and contaminate seeds and other birds get infected.

    It’s heartbreaking seeing the little birds on TV with their beaks open, trying to swallow. They can’t feed and they die of starvation.
    The rain this spring hasn’t helped the situation.

    Enjoy the little visitors.
    Happy Summer.
    Hugs, Julia

    1. That is so sad about the birds there. I so hope the situation clears up and there will not be a lot of birds lost. I no longer feed the birds but not for the same reason that you don’t. I am thankful that some birds still come to my place. I miss getting to see the different kinds that came when I was feeding them. Happy summer to you sweet Julia, hugs.
