Cherry Fest Posted byelenacaravela June 13, 2014 53 Comments on 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.

This reminds me – I need to net my blueberries!! Great shots of the cheekies! 🙂
Get those berries! Thank you Cath!
We had cherry trees growing up and I so loved watching the birds! Thanks for bringing up a wonderful memory!
Nice shots Elena!
Thanks very much Uday!
Great! Real special photos! Brava!
Many thanks Robert!
Beautiful series, Elena! And, I love cherries too! 😉
Wish I could save you some:) Thanks Stefano!
Beautiful and crisp photos 🙂
I guess they don’t mind sour! How wonderful to watch this. : )
They don’t seem to:) Yes, great fun.
wow! how amazing is the last pic?! I want some cherries too 🙂
Wish I could save you some;)
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…
Interesting idea, the hose snake. Nope, we’ve never harvested a cherry either. But it’s fun to watch the birds feast:) Thanks Tom
It’s always a great pleasure to watch birds and these are wonderdul photos 🙂
Thanks so much:)
One never plants a fruiting cherry for eating cherries. I thought they were ONLY planted to make all birds happy and fat! 😉
So true Linda:)
Wonderful scenes – all beautiful compositions. You frame the image so well.
Much appreciated. Thanks Kimberly:)
Oh, what a feast …for the eyes too! 🙂 xx
Thank you Marina!:)
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.
Yes! When the birds are through there’s nothing left:)
Elena, you must have had so much fun taking these great shots!
I certainly did:)
Beautiful shots! 🙂
Thank yo Patsy!
You’re welcome, Elena! 🙂
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.
Right after the rain. Thanks very much Louis.
What do they do with the pits? Swallow them or spit them out? Inquiring minds want to know.
I see most of the birds just swallow the whole cherry down. Smaller birds just peck at them.
You said it Jet!:)
Bird watchin this yr has been lovlier than ever.
Yes, lots of birds-life affirming.
Oh that’s so cool. The beauty of spring time. It’s the little things.
It is:) Thank you.
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.
No kidding? I wish I could pick only a few, but the birds pretty much take over:)
wonderful photos! have a good weekend dear friend!
Thank you! You as well:)
Gooood approach and nice capture !
Thank you Yoshi!
Wonderful attitude captured, no doubt what the bird looking for… 😉
Thank you Drake! Yes, the birds seem pretty happy:)
