Wild Birds: Heidi and the Titmouse

The little titmouse from last week that hung around our bay window and was definitely in love with its reflection has continued to stay around in the weigela bush underneath the window but only every now and then with just a quick look and then it's gone.
 
Sometimes he sits atop the hook that is used to hang the suet feeder. As you can see he still serenades us.

Poor Heidi is constantly distracted with the goings on in the window. This window holds her bed where she likes to lay in the sunshine. She has always been an inside kitty and this is as close to a bird as she's ever been. After a few days she would simply look up and check out the noise and then duck her head beneath her paws and go back to sleep.

Carletta your photography is so good. Capturing a flittering bird is so hard well done. The cats whiskers as well.

The titmouse is so adorable! Beautiful photos. Glad Heidi is safely inside your home, though I know she must be itching to get out.

The actions of some critters is really strange. I would think he thinks he sees another bird. At any rate they supply you with some entertainment.

Heidi is lovely! The birds are delightful!

Yje titmouse is very cute. I had to smile when I first saw the photo of Heidi. She looks quite frustrated but I'm glad she's on the other side of the windows from the birds.

Karen said...

Brian King said...

Great shots! I love the second one!

Kristi Bowman said...

Beautiful pictures of this wonderful bird. Kitty is very interested!

Betsy Adams said...

Love that photo of your kitty looking up and concentrating on that bird out there. What a wonderful picture!!!!

Great pictures also of your titmouse.. We have them --but they are so quick, it's hard to get a photo.

Hugs,
Betsy

I love the intent gaze of the cat. Your pictures are fantastic as always.

Faye said...

That first photo is just so on the money, Carletta. Perfect background for the colors in this bird. In the second one is such a good view of the head especially so we can see the markings easily. And Heidi has that psycho look going, doesn't she? Chuckling over this one.

the titmouse is soo adorable. Your cat seems to agree. :)

Phil said...

I wonder if your titmouse has found a mate so doesn't need to keep looking at himself so much? Nice pose and shot you took.

I may be the opposite of love! If its a male bird, it may think its a rival!

Nice shots.

Cheers - and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M

Love the birds, naturally, but Heidi...her portrait today just blows me away. What a GREAT image.

Terri said...

Lovely shots! My Katie loves to sit at the door and watch...every now and then I hear a low kittie growl, as if she thinks she could really get those birds if I let her out. (She's not an outside cat)

Lovely shots of the titmouse and your beautiful Heidi!

Ida said...

What a darling bird, I've never seen a titmouse before and I just love how Heidi is looking so intently at it.

Dave said...

Great last image..... could have been licking his lips in anticipation.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Congrats to you for keeping beautiful Heidi safe indoors and the beautiful birds safe outdoors! Crazy little titmouse, but he sure is beautiful.

Liz said...

What a gorgeous bird!! You've captured him nicely!
Your cat doesn't look too impressed at being kept inside!
