Need time to bird!



Have I been the only bad birding blogger?! I'm hoping to make it to the cabin next weekend and do some serious birding and hopefully get some decent photos. I've been studying for finals and missing being outside in nature. Also - I'm missing all of you! I think I'll have to have a giveaway to make up for it.....stay tuned.

Oh a giveaway would certainly make up for it, hahaha.
I have not had many interesting birds at my feeders, just the same ol', same ol' - finches, house sparrows, chick-a-dees and titmice.
We have NO snow here as of yet! Can you believe it? This is NY people, where's the snow? Maybe if we had some snow I would get some more birds at the feeders. Hey - I haven't even had my 2 cardinal pairs. Strange.

I have missed your too Shelley but we surely all understand. Time at the cabin will be a welcome break I'm sure and we look forward to more photos!
I can't take good photos, but I am seeing so many varieties of birds in our woods. It's been fun to watch.

Dorothy said...

Yes, we all have missed you and your wonderful bird photos!

Cindy said...

Beautiful catch. Love the Goldfinch in a post below. Beautiful birds.

Happy Sunday,
Cindy

Hi Shelley,
I hope you will find some time to enjoy nature and get some nice bird shots... Here it is the same not too much time to bird but this is mainly due to the weather and darkness ;-)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Shelley, I'm sure your birdies understand just how busy you are. We all understand and are proud of you for going back to school. It's not easy--is it?????

Hope you get some time-off so that you can get to your cabin and enjoy the holidays.

Hugs,
Betsy

You certainly have been missed, but I forgive you! Finals-yuck!
Big hug for Scout (aka Scoundrel),

Hi Shelley, I've missed you but understand that other important priorities must come first for you.
Hope you manage to get to the cabin for some much needed R & R.

Cathy Clementz said...

I wondered if you were OK! Hope you get to the cabin soon! The birds down here where we are "camping" are so darn shy!! We aren't allowed to put out a feeder due to the bears but I don't know if even THAT would entice the birds to come closer!!

Looking forward to your photos...assuming I can still get online!

Christmas break is right around the corner..so I expect some exciting things from you here soon. :D

Deb said...

Now that looks like a very well fed woodpecker :-) Time at the cabin sounds wonderful!

Daisy said...

Good luck with your finals, Shelley! Hope you can take a break and enjoy some time at the cabin. Great shot! :D

Rural Rambler said...

Yes Shelley a feathery birdy break is a must! You are missed! I will be looking forward to some good stuff when you break for the holidays :)

Jayne said...

LOVE the new layout Shelley! We've missed you, but fully understand the time studying takes. Looking forward to your being able to get back out to your birdies soon.

Kelly said...

...I've definitely missed your photos and bird humor. You usually make me laugh with your funny comments. Good luck with your tests, though--and keep working hard!

Leeloo said...

Hope all is well with you, can't wait to see your pictures if you end up going to your cabin :)

Elaine said...

Your lovely photos have been missed, but your studies need to come first. Good luck on your finals and I look forward to your next birding adventure.

holdingmoments said...

Good to see you back Shelley. Hope the finals go well for you.

Sandy said...

You've been a bad girl so yes you need to have a give-away..ha.

Hope you get to enjoy your cabin soon.

Good luck with finals.

I miss you, too.

Kim said...

I see you are getting that awful spam too!!! Shelley, welcome to winter, believe me, I am having the same problems. I just get out as much as I can on the weekend. Love your Red-bellied Woodpecker shot.

Bird Girl said...

Hi Shelley - no you sure aren't the only bad blogger - haha! At least you have a good excuse -best of luck on your finals!!!
Love to see the woodpeckers take center stage during the winter months!
By the way - you might want to copy and paste your Japanese comment (???) into google translator. I've been getting these comments daily and they are just SPAM - I reject all of them!

Don't you just love to see the woodpeckers take center stage during the winter months?

I was wondering what most people give away and what you have to do to be chosen?

Computers?
Cameras?
Pens?
Paper?

Mary said...

Give away, or not, we miss your photos and humor.

Lanny said...

Hope you did well on your finals! or are doing well as the case may be. My husband's students are done, now it is just make up time (aviation has strick time input rules) and paperwork for him.

Tina said...

Shelly,
I don't think I could have said it better...so busy and no time to get out plus sooooo cold and windy! Do hope you are doing well and keeping warm with all the weather that has been coming your way!!

Shelly: I love the red on the head of this woodpecker.

The Retired One said...

Ooooo, look at the red on his head. Gorgeous!
We had a lot more birds at the feeders before we left for our 15 day trip. I think they thought we abandoned them...now I am begging them to return....we have seen a few straggle back..but I am sad we lost so many to our feeders. Hope I can tempt them back with some sunflower seeds and thistle!

Leedra said...

I haven't been blogging either, and I am not going to school. Just knitting, knitting, and more knitting.

Jill said...

Thanks for the idea of hanging right on the tree. We're new to the suets and didn't even think about that.
