Makin' it through







The "hens" I got from a friend last summer made it through our single digit temp days and nights this past winter even though they were unprotected in a shallow container outside.


And this Eastern Towhee sings up a storm each morning at this same spot on this bush outside our front door.
(Thanks to Rubbish by Roan for helping me ID him)

we have cardinals and 2 unknown birds that sing in the same tree each morning. i captured the song on a vid and sent to Texwisgirl, but she doesn't know what it is either...

Beautiful shots of the Hen. Any idea what kind of bird this is? I tried to find him in my bird book, but so far I can't find a match.

Found it! Eastern Towhee.

Your hens are tough. And the bird is pretty. What kind of bird is it? How are you doing? How is your husband? I've missed your blog posts and trust all is well. Blessings.

Good to see your beautiful photos again, Amy. We've missed you. I love your closeups of the hen and the bird shot is stunning!

So happy to see you posting, Amy! The "hens" are really amazing, but the Eastern Towhee is awesome. You really captured the bright, red eyes!

I had a big strawberry pot full of hens and chicks but lost them all when the dogs knocked it over... glad yours survived the winter. Very pretty!
