Prickly to Feathers

We had a real heat wave that brought on the buds
The buds went to huge blooms even in overcast weather we are having now.

I got this cactus about 2 years ago, it had one flower on the top.
They don't last long, so need to get back out there in different light.

Isn't it nice the Towhee gets to enjoy the bird bath alone in peace.

Been having some bird issues, all my backyard birds are scared to come to the feeders and to this birdbath.
I love crows, however when they bring alligator lizards, snails, walnuts, and today two baby birds to the water to eat...
this is a bit much for me.
The mornings are full of these band-tail pigeons that just made their appearance into my yard recently.
FLOCKS of them flying all around, eating all the seed, and occasionally hit the large windows.
None of the other birds want to come around.
Today I covered the bird feeder with the squirrel cage we have for it.
Hoping the little birds will get in and the others will all fly AWAY!

I delight in seeing your bird pictures. I must get a feeder for my back yard. They would come around more often.

I want to thank you for having the pop-up comments. It makes it so much easier to leave a comment. Wish more of my blog friends had that.

Well, there must be something to the invasion of crows! Thanks Sandra, I will email you. I will do a report on the outcome of what happened today.

The cactus is beautiful, and I also hope you can control the bird situation. I haven't stopped by for awhile, and I'm glad I did.

Bad day to visit blogs nothing is loading properly or the comments working I will write a bunch then get an error. Lovely cactus flower. Happy Spring to you.

Crows can be thugish, and a real nuisance. Your flowers are lovely, and the wet Towhee looks so cute. I hope you sort out the bird problema!!

Those are beautiful and unique cacti. I have never seen anything quite like it and they make for a great photo. The cage might have the intended effect of leaving only the smaller birds by the bird feeder. I am sorry to hear that the pigeons occasionally steer into the window.
