Making the DragonFly a friendly place for birds, butterflies and any other creatures, is one of the reasons I garden. Today I took a picture of this Red Admiral butterfly, a first in my garden. (She was too fast for my camera.)
I try to make the garden bird friendly by placing several bird feeders and baths through out, and by growing plants that can be good-hiding places. My urban garden limits the variety of birds that visit it, mostly doves, house sparrows, starlings, grackles and blue jays.
This Blue Jay was not happy posing for pictures.
Ringed Turtle Dove
The Rock Dove or City Doves. (They can empty a bird feeder in one seating)

For those of you that are new to my blog, I am posting these pictures again. Two years ago we were bless by having a Screech Owl picked our garden to nest. My wife called her Golda because she resemble Golda Meir the former prime minister of Israel. To this date that was the highlight of my garden’s wildlife encounters.
Happy Easter everyone
