We had been experiencing a long stretch of gloomy, wet weather.
We haven't had a lot of rain...mostly just drizzle.

My flowers needed some sunshine as did the farmers crops.
Once in awhile the sun came out in time to set !!

Then, all of a sudden...sunshine and 90 degree temperatures.
Summer came in with a bang!! It's not official yet!

This Robin was having a fine time emptying my bird bath.

A rain dove waiting his turn.

Out in the back,
the squirrels and Chippies allowed the birds
to eat at the feeders.

I had a nest of Chickadees. 
Their house was invaded about 24 hrs after they hatched.
The tanbark was all torn up under the birdhouse.
Probably another bird...Very sad.

These guys are everywhere..
I've never known them to rob nests.
Probably a Blue Jay , Hawk or Crow.

My woodworking brother in law made this little bridge
so the Chipmunks could get across the great divide.
So clever, is he....

I hope your days are bright and sunny.
Have a good weekend.

Hello Missy, I like your female Rose-breasted Grosbeak on the third photo. The doves are so sweet. It is sad to hear the nest was raided. The little bridge is cute! Nice variety of birds. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

You really have a ton of birds. I love that! We aren't allowed to have feeders on our balconies here at the apartments because it's so messy for the people on the floor beneath... but we can have hummingbird feeders so I enjoy that.

Your photos are wonderful. That is the cutest little bridge made by your bil. I hope you'll enjoy the weekend.

I always get a kick out of your post - a chipmunk bridge, seriously how cute is that! Maybe that's why they allowed the birds to have a turn at the feeder, they were so impressed with their own bridge haha. Sad about the nest of eggs, darn invaders!

Have a great weekend Missy!

Oh, I just love your bird pictures. I see the mourning dove all the time around here. They are such peaceful birds. And your little bridge is so cute and charming. It looks like a fairy bridge.

Have a pleasant weekend.
