Lynne, this is why I love your blog--you capture bird behavior, something so many of us don't take the time to look at, so well!

Cathy said...

Just like people - strutting their stuff :0D You've still got lilacs. Ahhhhhhh.

Lynne said...

Deb- That's the most flattering thing anyone's said about my blog. I've always said, for me the best thing about birding is just watching birds be birds. Thank you!!

Cathy- They reminded me of a muscle man competition! Our lilacs are on their way out here at home but 150 miles north around Hasty Brook they were just starting to open.

Mary said...

I noticed your lovely lilacs, too!

I enlarged every photo, and Lynne, I had to laugh. You DID capture bird behavior again. You do this so well!

these guys are so funny to watch when displaying! We saw some doing this out in a field today! Only wish they wouldn't drop their eggs in the warbler nest!

That last one is hilarious!

"Is she watching? Was I butch enough?"

Jayne said...

What an entertaining set of photos Lynne!

This is so cool Lynne! You captured them so well!
P.S. The ferns are unfurling here - yay!!!

Larry said...

Interesting capture-I second what Deb said.

Great sequence. Looks like a final bow at the end. We have a lot of cowbirds around here this year. Bad reputation, but their nesting habits won't change just because we don't like them.
