Aloha Friday in Our Backyard

 
 
Welcome to Nature Friday, where we get to meet new friends and maybe share a picture or two of what nature looks like around Blogville.  This week we are going to give you a preview of what our Summer is going to look like here in our backyard!
 
 
 
 
 Seems the word about our Mama's birdy buffet has reached all across the USA. We are seeing all kinds of different birds around our backyard. We are pretty sure this is a relative of Olly Oriole that has been stopping by our backyard birdy restaurant!
 

 
 We also have a bunch of birdies helping themselves to the buggies in the grass. Mama is pretty happy about that!
 

 
 The hummers are humming all around our back porch. We can promise Mama has been busy recording lots of hummer drama on her trail cam!
 

 
 Here is Mr. Tanager taking a bath!
 

 Mama also is keeping an eye(or the trail cam is keeping both eyes) on our fountain...so we can hear all the local birdy gossip!
 


 
 Looks like Mr. Grosbeak and Mr. Tanager are on the outs....
 

 
Seems Mr. Grosbeak has been monopolizing the beak sharpener again!
 


You can find me hiding around the Spanish Broom.....
Why, you ask???
 
The lizards think I can't find them back there!
Silly lizards, I'll find them where ever they try to hide!
 
Here is a video of some of our Birdy trail cam footage so far!
You can also watch it HERE, on our YouTube Channel
 
 
 
You can bet you'll see more of all of our backyard wildlife this summer!
 
 
What kind of wildlife visits your backyard during the Summer??
 
 Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE  to go to our Hoppity Page.

Thankful for Spring Rain

 
 
We are still getting used to the lack of rainy days compared to when we lived on the northern coast of California where it rains a LOT! Here, in New Mexico High Desert, we get a few winter bouts of rain or snow. Then for a couple of months around this time of year, we get "monsoon season". This is when we get afternoon rain or storms a few days a week. Then, after the rain, the sun comes back out!
 
 
 
Now, during rainy season,Mama and I love to go outside, sit on the porch and watch the storms. This is one of the few things Rosy is a bit scared of, but I enjoy.  I also don't mind walking in the rain. Mama doesn't mind either, as long as there is no thunder or lightning
 
Mama made a video of a storm that came through the other day...
 
You can also watch it HERE, on our YouTube Channel


 
Whoah....that thunder was a little close!! 
We sure are thankful for our occasional Spring rains!


Thank you Angel Brian for hosting the
Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Day Tripping with Rosy (Finale) - Jemez River Views


 
Howdy effuryone! 
Welcome to Nature Friday, where we get to meet new friends and maybe share a picture or two of what nature looks like around Blogville.  This week I am going to recap the
final part of my Day Trip and some of the beautiful scenery
I experienced on a nice walk along the Jemez River.

 
If you need to catch up, you can read about Soda Dam and Valles Caldera HERE, and lunch in Los Alamos HERE
 
 
 
After a big lunch, the pawrents thought a walk would be in order. When they saw this picnic ground, they parked JeeJee and off we went!

We passed big cottonwood trees with leaves just starting to spread

 
I couldn't believe all there is to see along the river.

 
There are big mountains, towering above on every side. Some, like the ones above, look almost molded!

 
Red rock can be seen everywhere

The mountains go on and on and running right along side of them....

is the Jemez River.


 
It rushed by us, and although it was full, it wasn't as high as it had been when Mama drove past here last year. 

Last year it was so high,it flooded most of the picnic areas.
Above you can see one of the places the water goes when it is too full,

After looking at the river, we turned around and headed back to JeeJee

After another look at the Red Rocks of course....

As you might have guessed, Mama made a short video...

You can also watch it HERE, on our YouTube Channel

Thanks so much for tagging along with me on our little day trip,. I have a feeling there will be a few more of these in addition to our CeCe trips this year!!
