 Crows visit the feeders too . . .
. . . and so do Blackbirds . . .
. . . and Great Spotted Woodpeckers . . .
. . . but the Labradors prefer different treats!

  3. Great pics!! Love the Maggie angel & the Labs waiting for ??????

  4. I enjoyed the photos of the birds but the photo of the dogs made me laugh! Your labs are such fun! :)

  5. Of course, I love that Magpie! We had two big yellow labs while raising the kids. I miss them terribly. Their such great dogs.

  6. I envy your ability to capture birds. I try and fail frequently! But, my personal favorite is the dogs. Just looking at their backs, my dog Willie could be one of them. ;)

  7. Wowowow! We like the last one best because Old Girl is scared of those birds! :P

  8. That is a beautifully-captured Magpie about to land on the bird feeder!

  9. Your photos of birds are wonderful. I especially liked the Magpie. The wings are thrilling to see.

  10. woah that tapestry is just the bees knees!! and what a great line up of black birds we dont get many of those over here just the magpies that chase us! the labs look like they are in serious discussions fur sure... loves and licks

  11. All great photos. I love your mother's tapestry-such beautiful colours.
