Bird Bird Bird Bird Dog?

Some people have exotic birds flitting to and fro in their back yard. Me? I have sparrows. Hubs built this birdhouse originally for blue birds. Sadly, they moved in to a posh penthouse next door. After the sparrows moved in, Hubs gave up and added a perch.
Looks like Mama found something good.
Num num num num num.....
"Hey! What 'cha lookin' at?"
"Can't you take a hint? Go! Get out of here!"
Okay, so this isn't a bird, but he's so cute I couldn't resist.

Mom and me...
Happy Mother's Day!

sparrows do have a way of taking over. AWE - your non-bird is such a sweetie!

Tree Swallows are in our new Blue Bird house. What's a body to do? Sigh.

They aren't called House Sparrows for nothing. I've seen them in bluebird houses here. Good shots of momma!

I like the old barn photo too and the tractor hooked up to the manure spreader.

I am trying to establish myself on "one" blog: Patty said I should not just quit all of them but I had already done it. So she suggested I start a new one and instead of 5 or 6 more, just put everything on this one.

So good of your Hubs to add the perch and that bright eyed... black and white beauty is a heart stealer... the photo of 'mom and me' is a true treasure.

Bird watching looks like fun at your house. You have a Border Collie too! Lovely smile; she looks like she is full of energy.

I like the picture of you and your Mom. Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day, Roan.

That's what happened with our Bluebird house, too - the sparrows took over!

These are great captures and commentary!

Of course, your dog is hugely cute, and what a sweet photo of you and your mom. ♥ Hope you had a wonderful Mother's day. :D
