In case you hadnt noticed, I enjoy photography.  And birds.  And photographing birds.  Sometimes it is hard to get a shot of them quickly enough.  The camera is in the other room, or I am busy quilting or sewing, or I am washing dishes,  when I see something picture worthy.

Today I got lucky.  I was also not as busy, so was actually looking for some photo opportunities.

Steve took my car to go Christmas shopping, so I had a little different view out the kitchen.  The birds seem to like his truck.  I dont know what kind of bird this is.  Help me out Vicki…. a sparrow?  a wren?  Whatever it is, we have lots of them.  They love the seeds from the “weed flowers”.



Later, when looking for more birds, I was delighted to find my cardinals.  I had just remarked to Steve yesterday that I hadnt seen them in weeks.



There were 6 cardinals, but I never could get a picture of more than one at a time.  They were so active, it was hard to get a shot of even one!

I hope Santa brings me some bird feeders.  I did put it on my list.


I was glad to be up and walking today.  I had some kind of stomach flu yesterday and it wasnt pretty.  Glad it is gone today.  I didnt have much energy today, but at least my guts arent wrong side out!

    Unfortunately that’s a House Sparrow. They are pests and in the Spring they will destroy other birds nests – especially Bluebirds. If Steve likes to kill vermin he can add these to his list.
