The Starlings keep appearing and then gone in the yard, I keep trying to get a good photo, but so far, its always a “almost photo” and so here is another one, it’s starting to amuse me at this point.. See if this bird had not hidden its face at the last second, it would have been a good photo lol.. I swear I have 2 dozen photos of these guys over the past two weeks and not one is right.. tricky little things.
Babbles is a great looking ewe lamb, She is 75% hair Sheep and 25% wool sheep, the odds are very good considering what her coat is like right now that she will fully shed out just like her momma!
Here is she is showing her brown spot with her twin sister Milk Dud, they are very even, they always have been, they were born almost the same size and they were both nice sized newborns and they have grown steady in both height and weight. Their dad King has added more leg and length to them as well as excellent milk genes. Both of them are trying to chew a bit of hay now and they enjoy taking up a tiny bit of their momma’s milking ration and chewing on it.
Henry is enjoying his time in the house and really loves his sun warmed naps, his extra toes are so cool!
Always love your pictures. Those lambs are so cute.
yes, they really are, very good looking little girls for sure.
Lovely pictures. The lambs are just so cute<3
Isn’t it just a little strange to have starlings there already? Love their breeding plumage though… that turned out really well; )
i have had the same pack all winter, they come and go, they never left this winter..
Wow, is that “normal”? Everything’s just SO messed up… :/)
It is here, I always have a group of them that come and go all winter, they have for as long as I have been here
Wow. They don’t show up around here until the Red-Wings and Grackles come back.
Really! Well, no wonder you thought they were being odd then!
I am expecting my first red wings this month.. huh!
Well I’m guessing it’s because you’re smack-dab I’m the centre of massive wetlands whereas we have a pretty good-sized pond(former swamp) creeks and streams within a kilometre or two, but nowhere on the scale of your neighbourhood; )
I guess, I am going to have to look them up in the Ontario bird book, they were on the list of winter birds to watch for, but maybe they meant only in certain parts of Ontario.. Still I do like having them stop by.. they come and go, they clearly have a fairly wide range
Brought here by (can’t say what I want say:/) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_starling
I put up photo of them on the one tree with the hops twisty branches in jan, and I have some nice photos of them on the power pole lines in Feb and then snapped this last one a couple days ago, There is a mob of six.. at one point it was 8 but its been six most of the time.
Love the iridescence in the males’ Spring plumage:)
Its so lovely.. I agree..
Love your farm animal photos!! So darn cute!
Oh now I feel all warm and fuzzy.
Thanks for this.
The starling one is quite surreal. 🙂 … gorgeous babies, and toes. 😀
I keep waiting for someone to point out that there are two of them there.. can you find #2 🙂
Heh, directly to the left?
Hah! 😀 … I thought it was a pine cone at first. 🙂
