I don't feed the birds as much in summer as I do in the winter. A couple of days ago knowing we had a big weather change coming I put up more feeders and filled them up. This wet-headed cardinal showed up yesterday as we were having a rain/snow mix. You have to pardon his dirty beak - I don't provide napkins!
While I was away from blogging during my husband's recovery from by-pass surgery I still managed to take photos now and then. I took this of a baby bird back in June. I heard it in the corner of the garden and went back to the house to get my camera. I took a few pictures and left it alone so it wouldn't be too stressed and Mama could continue coaxing flying lessons out of the little guy.
Here's a not too sharp picture of Mama who stayed a good distance away but kept calling her little one to offer reassurance or maybe she was just warning me. I'm sure Mama was glad to see me leave!
