Color Guard

 
 
No,
not that Color Guard.
The color guard provided
by Nature.
 
This time,
the flying kind.
 
Dinnertime
at our house.
 
 
 
 
 
Dining for 2 please?
Mr. Goldfinch
and Mrs. Cardinal.
 
This caused quite a scandal in the neighborhood
Rumor has it that Mr. Cardinal was not happy!
 
 
Here's the proof...
 
 
 

table for one!
 
At least he doesn't subscribe to
the old adage
"Two Wrongs Make a Right!"
 
 
 
At least these two got it right!
 
 
 

 
 
 Mr. and Mrs. Rose- Breasted Grosbeak...
dining TOGETHER!

Oh I love that red bird. The Cardinal. Like I mentioned time after time. I sound like a broken record. We do not see them here in my area but at my daughters when I was out at the pool. One flew over the pool not the cuckoo's nest . The ever green trees they have for privacy is an attraction . I was in a shock in the city.

MOL MOL MOL
That is hilarious Ms. Jill.
Mr. G. Finch and Mrs. Cardinal sounds like a scene from Desperate Housewives or Peyton Place.
Do the Rose Breasted Grosbeaks come often? I've seen a pair only once years ago in the Spring as they were headed north. They are not routinely found in our area except doing migration.

Those cardinals are beautiful. I wish we had red birds here. Other then the red winged black bird. I love the orioles. There yellow is so brilliant! Great shots.

It's such a pleasure watching the birds come and go at the feeder, isn't it? You've captured the bright red of the cardinal perfectly - wow!

I've noticed on our bird feeder that when a blue jay arrives ALL of the birds fly away! Have you noticed that too. I love all of your colorful birds.
