Waiting for Bambi

A few Evening Grosbeaks are still around. They're not too intimidated by the jays or squirrels.

Thanks to Elke, the Caption Master, for the title. Many thanks for dropping by.

This is a great shot of your backyard community. Did you do the art direction? :) Love the black squirrel. We had one around here years ago.

@falcon11 haha, very funny you say that about the black squirrel. I had included a mean remark about them and deleted it ... ;-) I let Kala, the 4-legged squirrel patrol, out the other day and TEN of them went scurrying for cover. ughhh!

Grosbeaks are becoming my favorite bird. They look like Michigan State fans or a cross between a blue jay and wolverine.

First black squirrel I've seen. We have some white squirrels around here.

@timandelke I couldn't think of a title, thanks for the idea. You're the best captioner on 365! ;-)

You have the most congenial birds & even the squirrels aren't chasing them away. What is your secret?? ;-) I absolutely love this one....fav!!!

I love how they are all so peaceful, just enjoying a meal together! It does seem like something you would see in a children's book like Bambi - fabulous caption!

LOL Love your title. Great shot. You caught all kinds of good things. :)

Terrific Capture! Love the close up and detail in this shot! Fabulous shot, Anne!

so adorable... a scene that would definitely come with a fairy tale! Bambi , you 're late!
posted March 6th, 2012  
Did you hold a "casting call" for this one, Anne?!! How wonderful this one is with all of its diversity. Quietly enjoying the food and sitting next to each other. Absolutely gorgeous POV!
posted March 6th, 2012  
Holy socks! That's a black squirrel on the left! And the two little yellow birds, and the blue jay in the middle -- I agree with @karenann about the casting call! This is just wonderful!

Hello Ms. Doolittle.....I guess they get along so well because there is food aplenty and it's spread out. What will you do to top this? I know maybe add a deer...
posted March 6th, 2012  
love the way the grosbeaks & jay colors 'pop' out at you against the gray hues in the rest of the shot
posted March 6th, 2012  
That is indeed all you need to fill out your menagerie. Nice catch.
posted March 6th, 2012  
Their color is just fantastic!
posted March 6th, 2012  
A great capture of them all. I have had a black squirrel come to my garden for the first time.
posted March 6th, 2012  
each one is a great shot in their own right but together it is fabulous...

I think the disney snow white must be singing them down out of the trees
posted March 7th, 2012  
That's a very lovely meeting of different species of birds and animals. Feeding together without apprehension of each other. Would human beings were like that. Fantastic capture, Anne.

Aww this is fantastic. What a wonderful collection. :)

Great catch. I find myself missing Ontario when I see all the variety you have, even the squirrels. With our mild winter this year my feeders have been mostly empty and we don't have squirrels in Lethbridge!
posted March 7th, 2012  
what a mixture
posted March 7th, 2012  
Wow! What an array of different creatures! Cool!
posted March 8th, 2012  
the little squirrel is in a perfect perch. i love the stance of the blue jay and the way it is looking at the other two birds. it's like they're having a serious talk. fantastic shot, anne.
posted March 8th, 2012  
oh my goodness, what a crowd! GREAT catch!
