I'm so jealous! [Razz] Come make one of those in my yard, for my birdies.......

I love that one picture you got, it looks like they are getting ready to kiss...... [Big Grin]

[thumb] WOW [thumb]

I can't decide if the green bird is a Scott's Oriole or a Western Tanager. I haven't the foggiest idea what the brown one is. Can you I.D. them for me? I'm an avid bird watcher(I can identify some birds by their call and I have a 100 sightings on my life list).

Thanks [kissies]

The darker bird is a young, female Black Headed Grosbeak.. I'm fairly sure that the other is a female Evening Grosbeak. [dunno]

Absolutely beautiful!!! [flower] [flower] I'm jealous!

You make it sound sooooo easy......but I know better! I want to make one soooo bad.

Did you already have electricity to that area?

Is there a special kind of electrical cord that should be used....water, electricity, me! [shocked] and does it have to be placed in conduit....especially with gophers around??????

nothing like a happy wet bird....you can almost see them smiling! [thumb]
this inspires me to move my birdbath out from under the hydrangeas. the birds still use it in there, but i can't see them unless i am standing in the garden.

ooooooooh! Its so pretty! And those birdies looks so adorable splashing around ^.^ I can't stop smiling at that picture! Its my desktop now!

I so wish i could have a bird garden here, year round, but right about now, it would be considered a bird sk8ing rank [Roll Eyes] Plus there's no natural streems here, except for a teeny tiny one behind my barn that would never be seen...

When i get out of college i'm gonna get a house with a pretty yard that i can put lotsa gardens in! And all my tropical plants will live happily ever after [thumb]
