Sing, sing a song....

A drive through the strip pits tonight resulted in these captures of a Dickcissel....
he was just singing and singing.
We really didn't see much out there tonight...we heard all kinds of pheasants but they were impossible to see. The grass/hay/weeds are just too tall. We saw deer crossing the road out ahead of us. They walked one at a time across the road...three in total. When they walked out, we had not seen the first one, and barely saw the other two before they stepped into the open. And when they crossed to the other side, after a couple of steps in the field of hay, we could not see them at all. I would never have believed the grass was high enough to totally hide them.

I can almost hear him singing :) We had a treat last night. I posted about it on my blog.

A fine bird series of this bird we don't see in my country.

This bird must really have been happy about something. I really like your photo sequence.

Now I'm going to be singing that song all night long. :)

The grass sure has grown fast this year. Last weekend we saw a farmer taking his first cut of hay for the season. Seems early.

Checking in on you Rose.
This last shot looks like he's wearing a yellow tux. :)
Love both quilts below - especially the yellow and black one.

I'll be back blogging soon.

Your Dickcissel photos are sure a lot better than mine! Wonderful! Nice to see better what it looks like, since I never got close enough for anything that good. They are such beautiful birds and they do seem to like singing. The ones that I saw were at the stripper pits, too :-)
