Nature Notes: Birds in my garden
For this post, I've inserted all the photographs in a form that allows for clicking inside to enlarge them. The mockingbird above was screaming so loudly I went outside to see what was up. I never did figure that out unless the mockingbird was screaming so I'd come take its picture.
The cardinal above was actually trying to hide from me but its bright red feathers make that difficult. The birds are busier and busier this time of year, I suppose getting ready for winter. I notice this trend every fall.
The carolina chickadees seem to be in great abundance. I didn't even know I was shooting two (photo above) until I looked at the shot and realized I had a pair of chickadees. I thought I was shooting a single bird so fun to see I had a couple.
The carolina wren is another bird which is abundant but small and not always easy to catch with my camera. My neighbor's cat is a frequent visitor to my garden but the birds seem to successfully avoid him so I don't usually chase him off.
