The ‘celebration of life’ went well, we got to meet some members of the wife’s family we hadn’t seen in a while, and even a former neighbor of Dads who was also a friend of her family. I also got some pictures uploaded from earlier in the week, thought they turned out pretty good and will share them.
The morning I took these there were birds all over for some reason. It was almost like some didn’t make reservations for the bird feeder and started a line. In this tree alone there were three mourning doves and a cardinal.
One dove was all by himself and faced the sun, we’re guessing to get some warmth as it was a cool morning. I’ve counted as many as five of these birds hanging out together. It looks even better when actually see them instead of just a picture.
There were also cardinals that showed up later. This guy also seems to be keeping warm the way he’s fluffed up. See more cardinals in the smaller tree than the big ones. It was a good day to have the camera out though.
I really like this shot with the red of cardinal, the blue of the sky, and white batting that blew out of a squirrel’s nest not too far away. I felt like it was almost patriotic. At any rate, it’s colorful.
Finally, we got one of mama cardinal who studied the flock from her perch. I wish we could know what she was thinking as she stared at all the birds in the other trees. Or, it could have been she was hungry and didn’t like waiting. She made for an interesting study regardless. Enjoy our Wednesday.
