We always have a lot of birds in our area, but this time of year we see even more. Some of them are passing through on the way to their summer homes, while some hang around longer.
I wasn’t sure what kind of bird this was, but some Twitter friends helped with the ID:
This bright red Cardinal was keeping his distance…
Then he decided to come closer.
And even closer…
Finally, his cousin stopped by for a brief visit before they both flew off.(Thanks to Linda for the ID on this one. I thought at first it was a female Cardinal. ha!)
All in all it was a fine birdy morning!
