Cherry Fest

Our backyard cherry tree is a fruit eating bird delight site.  Though the tree is full of cherries, the birds are fighting over the choicest, deepest red ones.

Even the least successful still seem content to snatch up the nearly ripe fruit.

    wow! how amazing is the last pic?! I want some cherries too 🙂

  9. We had a cherry tree in my parents garden. Never got a single cherry from it thx to the birds. My dad tried everything including a fake hosepipe in the branches to represent a snake. The birds mocked that one…

  10. It’s always a great pleasure to watch birds and these are wonderdul photos 🙂

  11. One never plants a fruiting cherry for eating cherries. I thought they were ONLY planted to make all birds happy and fat! 😉

  12. Wonderful scenes – all beautiful compositions. You frame the image so well.

  13. Oh, what a feast …for the eyes too! 🙂 xx

  14. We used to have an amalanchia that for one day a year, the birds went nuts over – like your shots, it was like some kind of eating festival going on.

  15. Elena, you must have had so much fun taking these great shots!

  16. Beautiful shots! 🙂

  17. A super group of images. I particularly like the backdrop in the first picture – there is such a freshness about the various greens and together they create a wonderful texture.

  18. What do they do with the pits? Swallow them or spit them out? Inquiring minds want to know.

  19. Bonanza! 🙂

  20. Bird watchin this yr has been lovlier than ever.

  21. Oh that’s so cool. The beauty of spring time. It’s the little things.

  22. Great catch – who wouldn’t love a good cherry? Used to pick them as a summer job when I was a child, oh so many years ago.

  23. wonderful photos! have a good weekend dear friend!

  24. Gooood approach and nice capture !

  25. Wonderful attitude captured, no doubt what the bird looking for… 😉
