I was able to get the above photo of the little guy. Tonight I saw a pair of robins sitting on the ridge of Marrianne's house. The photos didn't turn out because the robins and the color of the roof were too much the same. That's what you call camouflage. This afternoon, I saw a cardinal in the same area. There are a lot of bushes and shrubs there. This is the male. I couldn't get a good shot of the female. These two birds are usually close together and one day I'm hoping to get a photo of the pair.
After dinner tonight, I had Dakota out and had taken the camera along because of all the bird activity in the area. I've been keeping it in my coat pocket for any photo opportunities. As Dakota and I were walking along the edge of the park, this Great Blue Heron happened by, heading to his favorite spot along the canal. Thank goodness I had the camera. It would have been a shame to have missed this fantastic shot. I may never have such an opportunity again.
I hope you enjoyed these photos of the birds in our area. ~Blessings, Mary~
