Skywatch Friday - April 10

While we were out walking the dog this week we came upon this Chipping Sparrow singing his heart out. I thought he looked so handsome sitting amongst the bright red blooms of the Crab Apple Tree with the fiercely blue sky as a backdrop.
He seemed to be quite pleased with his performance as he is looking at his domain. For more Sky Watching go here. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend and the Easter Bunny brings you chocolate eggs. I also want to thank my Dearly Beloved for letting me post his pictures of the Chipping Sparrow.

He is soooooo cute!
Do you think he trained all year to perform for Easter?
Anyway, happy Easter to you. Tell Luna not to run after the Easter Bunny :-)

What a fine fellow he is! I love to listen to the birds singing. The yard is starting to fill up with them.

Lisa, tell DH his photos are beautiful. Those blooms are so pretty and the little sparrow claiming his territory and calling for a lady.

Lisa, these pictures are so beautiful of the lovely crabapple blossoms against the blue sky, and the little chipper. Your hubby did well.
I haven't seen any chipping sparrows yet but they should be along soon.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

I love the colors in these photos, Lisa. Blue sky, red blossoms, and a bird singing--you can't get much more spring-like than that!

Somehow I missed your last post--glad all your flowers survived the freeze. My hyacinths and daffodils didn't seem to mind; I'm just hoping they don't get blown away today:)
