"Did you ever suffer an attack of a wandering foot caused by the lure of that mystic unknown? There's is no permanent cure, relief only had
while making the wilds your home."
Today is the first day Ive felt good in 10 days...the cold has been keeping me from sleeping well...and with all the other stuff going on, its been wearing me down. So when life gives you lemons what do you do? Take Pictures!! What else?
The northern cardinal was singing up high in the tree...
He shared the canopy with the Great Crested Flycatcher, who wouldnt turn around for a face shot..but gave me a good Butt shot!!
this chipping sparrow has an injury, wish I could do something but alas he was up in the tree weary of me...hope he makes it....
I wonder if a hawk got a hold of him? Or the Screech owl that lives in the hollow of the tree...
The fur balls are always close by..watching my every move..
and why is it, the camera focus's beyond the twigs and got the squirrel, but when I tried the same thing with this female N. Cardinal....well it didnt!!
User error? OF course..lol
and I didnt have the tripod, so this short vid is kinda shakey, but you may get a kick outta it anyways..
The high pitched whistle at the end is the Great Crested , they have that disticnt Police Whistle call.... So these small creatures made my day so much brighter...hope the same happens for you!!
