It was early in the morning and it appears this Northern Flicker was drying out. I love photographing this species. They are really cool.

I Can’t Leave You Alone

Yes, its a cardinal .. I never get tried of photographing cardinals. They are such a beautiful bird. We saw him first under this tree, then we saw him on a picnic table. I guess he didn’t want to leave us alone.

Eastern Bluebird

I spotted these lovebirds while hiking around on a brisk spring morning. They are not actually ‘lovebirds’. They are just a couple of Eastern Bluebirds that happen to a ‘happy couple’. The male is very colorful, and they are both beautiful. 

Teresa and I were actually setting in her SUV, when I spotted him. At fist, I thought it was a sparrow, until I focused my camera on him. The photo is slightly out of focus. In fact, every shot I took of him was slightly out of focus. Not far from that spot, I took the photo of his mate (my assumption since the are monogamous). 

I read that the Eastern Birdbird Numbers are declining due to competition for nesting sites from field sparrows and starlings (iBird Pro). I love it.

3000 Songs: One Bird

public.jpeg

This is a Brown Thrasher. I love the eyes. I have read that this species can vocalize 3000 distinct songs. I didn’t stick around to count them.

This is the 1st time I have seen one of these this year.
