A surprisingly chill hawk I saw at one of our metro parks today.
“'Sup. You know where a bro might be able to score a vole around here?”
Is that a vine wrapped around the pole? Or some sort of anti-squirrel device?
It’s a slinky I wrapped around the pole. It’s fairly effective at keeping all but the most determined squirrels away.
There’s no such thing as squirrel proof.
Cool! Is that a snapping turtle?
It is. And not a small one, either. Its head looked to be slightly smaller than my fist.
No need to worry, I’m sure he/she is a friend to all children.
So some Robins set up a nest in a bush right outside my kitchen window. It took some doing to get the tripod set with one leg in the sink. And I did my best to document their lives there. But then I got sick and missed the final stages. But here’s baby robins. I don’t know if “cute” is the word. More like a mass of pointy mouths.
So more Happy World Photography Day everybody. And it has occurred to me that I have never posted much over here. So without further ado…BIRDS!
This Orspery was fishing. Though I think it stole that from a fisherman. The head is to cleanly cut.
A male Cardinal contrasting with the green leaves.
This one has had about enough for the day, thank you.
And a female Cardinal curious about the weirdo with the camera. “Get off my lawn!”
Birds are fun. And surprisingly expressive.
These are great! I wish I could get more and better bird pics. My phone is only good for when they’re in sunlight inches from my window. I follow a local guy who gets much, much better pics than me and I’m jealous.
Just found this pic from 2015. My sister had a sort of big metal gazebo frame in her yard, but the original fabric top got destroyed. She clamped this white tarp on tap and the folded up part in the corner became a home for a nesting bird.
