What's that saying? A bird in the hand....(and what a beauty)

Sunday, January 30, 2005

Every day I visit the Oklahoma City, OK Backyard Birdcam and Friday caught this absolutely gorgeous capture! I just love cardinals. This site has a beautiful collection of photos so take a moment and check out the Gallery. There are lots of clear, beautiful pictures of many types of birds.

Hello beautiful! He or she might've been on my shoulder... not sure now. Somewhere very close in any case.

If only he didn't look away... cardinals usually visit my feeder during storms...they're not too put off by the weather. (at least sometimes)

A downy woodpecker paid a visit during the snowstorm...which is still ongoing...brrrr

Have to be very patient and very subtle to hold a camera inches from a bird... if they're hungry enough, they might stick around a this one.

At work (while on break) I saw what looked like a Cooper's Hawk. Really stunning. No camera of course. (argh). This pretty birdie (not sure what kind) is another from the Parrot Refuge in NL.

Red bellied woodpecker... was really happy that it didn't take off as soon as I aimed... that's what usually happens

Wednesday, January 12, 2005

Not sure what kind of birds these are but they're pretty exotic looking...(and shy)

From last spring...a juvenile cardinal..had a bunch of them around at the time.. really neat! They're not as skittish as their (wiser) parents...

Lovely little chickadee at my feeder...

This little beauty let me rub its head; even cocked its head when I stopped as if waiting for me to continue... Awwwww....such a cutie...
