Bird Hotel.....No Vacancy!!!!!

I snapped these pictures at the Colts Neck Fair, just as the sun was setting!! Chucks contribution, running for the camera that I left in the car. It is always a mistake to leave the camera in the car!!!

As I was taking the pictures Chuck said "Bird Hotel......No Vacancy"!! I didn't get it at first, I was hurrying to get the pictures as I was loosing the light. He said it again and then smiled........

The Bird Hotel......No Vacancy!!!!


they have been very busy in those cute little chalets.......


lot's of these..........


lot's of babies!!!!!!


posing.......


looking down on all the peeps waiting for the fireworks to begin.
They are probably always alone here.......
I'm sure he was thinking, what's all the fuss about!!!!!!

ooooohhhhh and I have no idea what these birds are but I am quite confident my blogger friends do!!!!

Now I know these are Purple Martians.......thanks to all my blogger friends!!!!!

  6. yup, purple martins. that is the most unique purple mountain condo i've ever seen. i like it much better than the big houses with all the holes. this way they each get a free-standing nest but can still nest in a colony!

  10. Perfect title! Awesome capture.

    How many shots and how long you asked...well these were taken on a walk with my Mom on our recent visit to oklahoma. I am ever watchful, and find I am becoming pretty observant. Honestly just a couple of shots and a few moments. Dragon flies don't sit still too long ;)
