www.audreygoeslocal.blogspot.com saw one of these recently. Audrey, here is the photo of the kildeer that we saw on Arabia Mountain!
Let you tell you though, this is like a treasure for our birds. You cannot believe how popular this is, especially in our hot Georgia summers. This is a tufted titmouse and we just call it a "tufty".
Another butterfly from Arabia Mountain above and a carolina wren that was also on our patio. Sorry that isn't a very good photo of it, but it is such a quick little bird, with that little tail that flicks up and down, and it is such a nice shade of brown too. It will make a nest in some odd places, such as a mailbox, a wreath on your door, or a bag of nails hanging up in a shed. They are dear little birds and many people are thrilled if they choose to nest near your homes. They have a beautiful song.
Oh look, Richard has given me the camera! We walked this trail today. At Arabia Mountain, it is the one mile rock trail that goes down to the lake which we have not photographed before. I will show you photos of that but it will have to wait until the next post. Our time changed this weekend, it's such a shame to lose an hour when every minute is so important! Never mind, we'll get it back in the autumn. Hope everyone enjoys birds and butterflies as much as we do!
