Hi Eileen-
The Eastern Blue, both the male and the female are beautiful specimens and I love your pictures of them.
The Easter Bunny is so very cute and I love the Fox Sparrow (what a lovely name!) and the grandpups too.
Thanks for hosting.
Have a Happy Weekend!
Peace :)

Angie said...

Yours is the second post today with a Fox Sparrow, which I have never heard of!!! This is why I love the blogging community! Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!

That male Eastern Bluebird is a gorgeous bird and a very good image Eileen of him. Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful weekend.

rupam sarma said...

Lovely pics.
Happy Weekend. Greetings.

I love how you slipped your granddogs and the Easter Bunny in there, Eileen.
Who knew a sparrow could be so pretty, that's not what I think of when I think, "sparrow" but then you really know your birds.
There's something on my mother's balcony that's been ripping apart her outdoor carpet to make a nest, I should snap a photo and try to find out what it is.
The capper is that the critter is making a nest in my mother's fireplace vent and in this cold weather she really misses it.

wonderful photos!

Ella said...

Hi Eileen! I always enjoy your posts! So beautiful, i think my favorite is the Easter Bunny! Wishing you a nice weekend!

NatureFootstep said...

Not sure I have seen the Fox sparrow before. It is a fine one Lookin a little like a trush! :)

Marit Sønstebø said...

Hello,

You have such colorful birds! They are all so beautiful.
I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Nancy J said...

Those feather shades, truly gorgeous. As are the others in each photo, Nibbles and Chewy, what great names, do they live up to them?

Joyful said...

That bluebird is so pretty and the dogs are adorable. Have a wonderful weekend Eileen!

Splendid captures!
Well...you dogs were quite easy! (LOL!!)
Have a sunny weekend.

Nancy Chan said...

Great shots of the birds, bunny and your grand dogs. I think Nibbles and Chewy were looking at yummy treats!

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

The bluebird is so serene and beautiful. I will probably miss the Fox Sparrows, as they will have migrated out by the time we return to Illinois next week.

Jo said...

Oh Eileen, I love the Fox Sparrow and of course, your granddoggies are my favorite. Thanks for hosting this meme. Have a great Saturday. Jo

Sandra said...

sweet little blue birds, their colors are so pretty and you know how much i love furry critters, rabbits and dogs OH MY

Tom said...

...by far, the Bluebird is my favorite.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

It was great seeing male and female bluebirds in adjoining pictures...she is pretty too! And I did not know the Fox sparrow...your sons dogs look happy to be together! Thank you for hosting, as always.

Gayle said...

First time for a fox sparrow for me too. I also see it's grand dog day. Happy Day.

Brian King said...

Beautiful bluebirds! Around here they have a lot of competition from House Sparrows, unfortunately.

David Gascoigne said...

An Eastern Bluebird and a Fox Sparrow in your own yard is very special. I would love to welcome either one of them!

Lynne said...

The Eastern Bluebird is stunning, so is the picture!
Like the female too . . . in her less noticeable blue.
Fox Sparrow and grand dogs were another treat to see . . .
And add a bunny . . . a spring treat for sure . . .
(Hope the snow and ice misses you completely!)

Nick V. said...

Great shots, as usual, Eileen! I love those bluebirds and I have a soft spot for doggies...
Have a great week!

Betty Crow said...

Beautiful bluebirds. Great names for the pups. I've been watching for a Fox Sparrow to add to my collection, but so far they have been elusive. Have a wonderful weekend!

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

We've never been fortunate enough to have bluebirds nesting even though we have their nesting boxes. That's a cute fox sparrow.

Sondra said...

Nice bluebirds and I like the Fox sparrow too wonderful to see spring animals arriving enjoy.

ann said...

And here we have the western blue bird that looks much the same. They stay mostly in the mountains, but may fly through here on their way. Great photos. I do enjoy your beautiful bird photography and the pups are sweeties.

Debbie said...

hi eileen...there is always that one stick, that one leaf...but still mr. bluebird is just gorgeous, what a GREAT capture of him - of them both!!!

i have so many of these bunnies hanging around my yard, i have been feeding them lettuce so they will stay. i enjoy watching them. it's nice to have grand dogs, all the fun and none of the work. enjoy today, it is suppose to be gorgeous!!!

Nick Va said...

Lovely!
Thanks for hosting, Eileen!

Andy Wilson said...

I can't pick a favorite from these, Eileen! I do love to see the Bluebirds though!

Jeanie said...

I long to see a bluebird -- and what a perfect bunny! Just the right size!

Phil Slade said...

Good Morning Eileen. I am so jealous - you have Bluebirds in your nest box. How wonderful.

Thanks for the link-up today. I hope you have a lovely weekend and a productive week of birding.

A Colorful World said...

Beautiful bluebirds! I am so hoping I will have a family in my nesting box. I did clean it out a month ago. Love the bunny, and your dogs are very sweet. Not going to be able to visit many others today but I will try. Have a great weekend!

William Kendall said...

A lot of cuteness here!

Eileen, pretty bluebirds. Peter Rabbit looking good. Fox Sparrows are finally returning in our area. Attentive Grand-dogs. Thanks for sharing.

Terri said...

Nibbles and Chewy- how sweet! I love the bluebird shot- I always like to see these pretty birds, but because of my martins they don't come around very often.

I've only seen one Eastern blue bird in Florida. They are so cute.

Karen S. said...

Hello Eileen, your post gives me hope, that spring has to arrive here soon. A few (well probably all of them) birds are confused with melting snow and then another blizzard. Enjoy your weekend and grand-dogs and greenery!

Our photos said...
