Kathleen, we too have had our ups and downs with the birds in our yard. A family of swallows built under our carport,only one of the four chicks survived, the robin family fared better, with all chicks surviving.


Kathleen .. that strange quirk with the Mourning Doves happens here too ... one year they put a nest in my neighbor's rain gutter that I could see out my kitchen window .. it was like waiting for a tragedy to happen .. and eventually it did but I think well before the eggs were mature .. I remember looking out that window trying to make my impression to the mom "get out of there for god sake !!!"
Loved your pictures !
My passion flower is well beyond the support .. I have to put it in the raised bed by the deck now .. good grief !

Sweet Bay

What beautiful bird photos!

To answer your question about Pickerelweed -- Pickerelweed can take a lot of shade and still bloom. Mine gets a half a day of sun, or dappled shade all day.


Those birds are too cute. Great shot. It is odd about the mourning doves. Careless indeed.
