The Lineup

I haven't posted for over a week and we are having the same kind of weather that we had back on April 9th when I posted the birds in the snow storm.  Schools are all closed for the 3rd time in April.

Here are the poor little dark eyed juncos lining up trying to find lunch in the alley behind my house.


The poor little robin is all hunkered down in the snow.



I do have some colorful pictures that I took at the Bachman Idea House in Minneapolis last Saturday.  I will post them later today or tomorrow as I'm really needing some color!  I hope you are having some color and sunshine in your day.

Even though I haven't posted in a week, I have been visiting all of you even if I didn't leave a comment.

Until next time!

Barb

the juncos are kinda cute in their line. :)

Debbie said...

happy to hear from you today, sorry about the snow!!

the juncos look like they are lined up, waiting for the school bus that isn't coming!!

Olive said...

When I was a small child I used to say the birds were going to church when they lined up like that. It's plum hot here!

Carletta said...

Look at all that snow - goodness sakes.
I was complaining earlier that summer seemed to take over spring here today. Guess I should be thankful for the 88 degrees.
That poor robin is probably feeling betrayed. :)
Take care Barb.

I hope your snow is gone soon. No sun here, it is raining and cold.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Aww, poor little birdies! I hope you guys get some better weather soon.

Karen said...

Cute lineup! We have hoards of junkos in the yard. We still had snowflurries last week but today it's close to 80 degrees. Go figure!

Amy Burzese said...

I know those birdies are ready for warm weather too!

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

i never realized that robins would stick around through snow - thought they enjoy warmer weather. interesting indeed. ( :

Pamela Gordon said...

Oh, those poor little birds! I can't believe all the snow that is still coming in the mid-west. Crazy April weather this year. We've had a bit of sunshine but rain on the way for the weekend. Maybe the grass will green up a bit. Hugs, Pamela

This usually happens to us once each spring after the birds return.. it snows, and the roads become a hazard, with all the birds flocking to them looking for worms!
They haven't returned this year, though.. except for some Canadian geese I saw running scattered on the frozen lake yesterday.. I'm sure they were looking for something to much, too.
I'm sorry for the little guy, but I do love it when robins puff up all round like that - it's adorable.

Karen Frost said...

Sorry about the snow, Barb! You must be getting tired of it, but it sure is pretty. Poor little birds. Stay warm! xoxo

Nancy Claeys said...

It's been snowing here off and on all day too. Not really sticking now, but it was earlier.

Funny, I haven't seen any juncos here today, but I did yesterday. Maybe they thought it was a good time to flee. :)

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

The weather has actually been pretty nice here, but now that I've said that, we'll probably get a foot of snow tonight. I hope Spring comes to your area soon!

Buttons said...

Oh the poor little things I suspect they were expecting Spring like the rest of us. B

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Oh poor little birdies - they look so cold. I'd never seen them lined up like that. Hope your snow is gone soon.

Carole M. said...

Oh poor everyone, birds and wildlife included of course. That's not fair Spring taking so long to visit. Your photographs though not full of colour Barb' sure do convey to all of us quite what it's like for you right now. Keep warm and dry and hopefully the sun shines real soon

Small City Scenes said...

You may be having snow but we are having RAIN and it is the rainiest April on record. Phooey!! Sad pictures of the birdies. I really feel for that cold looking robin. MB

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Barb, it sure have been a crazy season for winter weather. It just want to hang on and on. Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. I am so glad you could see some color by coming over for a visit.
I hope your little juncos found some food and the robin stayed warm.
Have a nice weekend.
hugs, CM

The weather has been all upsie downsie around here, nearly 80 one day and in the lower 40's the next. Sheesh! Hope you get more spring-like weather soon.

Terri said...

I think ya'll are just going to skip spring! Poor birds!

Far Side of Fifty said...

I bet the snow is getting you down too..yes post some color!! I have not seen a Robin yet or Juncos either..I am waiting for them to come..they must be stalled in southern MN:)

Barb said...

I think your weather has been similar to ours in CO - not springlike yet! Love the lines of the first photo.

Renae at simple sequins said...

Oh man this spring time is NOT behaving for us either. Utah is usually too hot or too cold. We don't get much of a springtime, really but when we do I AM ALL OVER IT. We have been forecasted more rain today. We don't need rain! We need the sky to be Tiffany Box blue, huh? (hug) for better weather!

I love the line up!
