Out the Window


Backyard Bully

This was pretty amazing - The brown thrasher had an acorn and it kept rolling when he tried to crack it, so he dug a little hole, pushed it in, and then proceeded to peck away! "Bird-brain" is a misnomer.

I almost think the female cardinal is prettier than the male.

Posing -

Chipping sparrows have just gotten back.

A flash of sunshine.

Noisy..

Oh-boy...they dropped some!

Daily Dogwood.

Isn't it amazing how good 'out the window' photography can be? Love the titmouse and dogwood - chickadee with the bright eye!!

Thanks, everybody! We're going out to Shenandoah Nat Park later - had intended to go early this morning, but had to take the car to the shop. We might not see much in the middle of the day, ut I get "withdrawal symptoms" if I don't get out there at least every other week.

That is something else. Others robbing through the thicks to get a glimpse of birds - and you look out the window and get shots like that.
Doesn't seem fair! ;)
Wonderful shots. As always! Cheers, Klaus

Beautiful window shots. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Klaus and Mike. (My husband calls the house my 1/2 mil dollar blind! The neighbors are having decorators in all the time doing draperies, etc, and I'm cutting out screens!) lol

Your few moments yielded some beautiful shots... Them thar birds are no 'bird brains' for sure. They are smart, and so is the resident squirrel. Maybe smarter!! thanks for sharing.

The Birdlady said...

Jalynn - thank you! Yeah, that squirrel doesn't starve!

JJ and Shellmo - thanks so much for your kind words. I'm very fortunate.
