Birdin' In The Rain, Just Birdin' In The Rain!

Even the Pine Warbly thing was singin' in the rain!

What a glorious feelin' I'm birdin' again!
I'm laughing at clouds so dark up above
There's warblys in my heart and I'm ready for a dove
Let the stormy clouds chase everyone from the fens
Come on with the rain, I've a rain cover on my lens
I walk down the boardwalk
With a happy little squawk
Just birdin',
And singin' in the rain!

Don't aim up for too long when it's raining!

Coots don't care...

More rain=more mud for the Robin's nest!

Blue-gray Gnatcatcher remind me of Groucho Marx for some odd reason...

PHEW! If you flew this far, you'd smell a little tangy too!

Ruby-crowned Kinglet.
Crazy eye expert.

Speaking of Singin' in the Rain!

Veery well hidden, eh?

You can only find this stuff on Birds From Behind!

Speaking of only here...why won't Winter Wrens sit still for me?!

  1. I am glad to see some light-hearted comments about rain. Because where I live in central Illinois it's been raining...and raining...and raining...and right at this exact moment? Raining! Seriously, it is enough to drive a person to insanity! But your photos and comments did lighten the mood for a moment. Now, if it would just stop raining!

  2. A poet no less. No, really less....

    Love the 'do on the Hermit Thrush~~all green and stickie-up like that.

    I. Am. So. Tired. of. Rain. Arg.

  5. Absolutely fantastic!
    I'm a big fan of birds!!

  6. Good to hear you singing again!

    We are in dire need of rain over here otherwise there will be severe shortages for everyone including the wildlife.

  7. Wow, I'm behind on answering your comments!

    Frank, I'll post a little rain to you! We have a little TOO much!

    Thanks Mr. Garden!

    Cindi, we're all a little happier now that our warblys are back!

    Dawn, More Butts?

    Hang in there Ranger Anna! We'll be fine...well, maybe you, I'll never be right...

    Esmerelda, do you work in banking? They could call you "Es Crow!" Get it?

  8. OMG I thought of "A clockwork orange" movie. it's just this song...

    Anyway the birds' butts are awesome and it's always nice to have some refreshing rain just not for too long :)
