I have spent time recently lurking near some forsythia bushes behind our house, not for any nefarious purpose, but to snap pictures of the sparrows who congregate there. Sparrows have surprised me with their beauty and personalities–hope you enjoy them, too.
When I first looked through the viewfinder and saw this little creature, I couldn’t imagine what it was. But it reminded me of the oogle birds in the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons (not everyone will remember these!). Oogle birds were very shy, and had feathery plumes sprouting from the top of their heads. Ok, so maybe this isn’t an oogle bird! I’m pretty sure it’s a young female cardinal with her adult feathers coming in!
A rabbit’s eye view of life . . .
Can’t resist posting a few more pictures of our new cat Moose. He is settling in nicely, and enjoys sitting with me while watching Agatha Christie on Masterpiece Theatre.
Lastly, the leaves are turning . . . the summer has gone by so quickly. Peace to You. Fran
