Heavenly Father sent me a surprise visitor today! I was sitting outside trying to be really quiet and still, hoping that the birdy egg mommy would come along and let me take her picture. I tried to peek into the lamp fixture to make sure nothing had made off with the eggs and you would have thought the light fixture had turned into a maniacal cuckoo clock or something. The parent bird was in there and popped out an me, nearly making me pee my pants. haha Mental Note: No more trying to peek in the light fixture!
So, I went to sit down, as I said, quietly and still. The next thing I know, there is a cardinal on the patio with me and then up in the tree right in front of me. I was lucky to get three pictures of him. They are on the fuzzy side, but that’s as good as I could get with bad eyes, shaky hands, and a 300mm lens sticking out 40 miles in front of the camera. 🙂
Isn’t it a beautiful bird? I think that cardinals are my very favorite bird.
Now, for that fiesty mommy bird. I got a couple of very fuzzy pictures of her, but maybe they will be good enough for you bird folks to be able to help me identify her. I hope so, anyway!
So, any guesses about what kind of bird this is, beside cranky? It was squawking up a storm while I took these pictures.
Have a blessed day, y’all!
