Camera Critters 42



Camera Critters


It's Camera Critters time again. We've gone from the zoo (last week) back to our own back yard this week. These pictures were all taken earlier in the year and perhaps last year. At any rate, before Hurricane Ike. Seems like we are dating everything BI (before Ike) or AI (after Ike). I am pleased to report that all our bird friends made it through the storm and are back in our backyard at feeding time.



Ma and Pa cardinal have raised several little ones from a nest
in our duranta. Dad is sitting on a cage that we had
around a lime tree.



Mourning Dove


We were out working in another area of our postage stamp
backyard and were late feeding.
Normally, we do not feed on the ground, but the
birds were in such a hurry and making such a racket
that we tossed seed wherever!



Blue Jay and Sparrow


See you next week!

Oh, I love these shots! We put out our birdfeeder only around Christmas and we haven't had any visitors yet, despite me cleaning it off after each snowfall. I do love the cardinals in particular. The bluejays are colorful but they tend to scare off the little ones.

Great photos. Looks like you had sunshine to get good color.

Love the birds! I have a ton of feeders out & love watching so many different ones coming in to feed.

I love the Cardinals and I think the Blue Jays are beautiful, even if they do chase other birds away from feeders. :-)
