Things to do when it's too cold....#2


Photograph birds...through the window...without scaring them



They were so excited by all the extra birdseed that they stopped paying attention to me, so I just sat and watched.  The male cardinals tend to "rule" and run off the littler birds. The cardinals are very protective of their females and sometimes they fight their own reflections in the window. I watched this scene a long time, marveling in how fluffed up the birds were, and feeling very thankful that we could put out some feed for them.

These pics are awesome!! Such a wonderful contrast with the red and the white in the cardinal ones.

Love the pictures! I find I'm putting out more seed, too. I began putting it on my window sill, and it's so great to watch the cardinals, wrens, chickadees and titmice as they scramble for food.
