Sunday was designated to be a "rest" day for us!!
We had a very busy week and I look forward to rest days.
It means staying home, relaxing and doing fun things.
It involves taking lots of pictures in the yard
and of my beautiful feathered friends.
Mid morning Sunday, I brought out the big guns,
shelled peanuts, on the deck rail
and it did not take long for the yard to be filled with "hungry" birds!!
But today we are going to focus on Mr. Male Cardinal
This guy was a riot.
He watched me, and every single bird that landed in the yard.
displayed his super powers by chasing off Mr. Blue Jay...
and fluttered his feathers if anyone got close.
What he didn't do...
was eat, one, single peanut!!
He sure looked like he could use a few...
he was super bright red and super skinny.
Maybe he's on a diet, trying to impress the Mrs.
At some point Mr. Squirrell showed up and Mr. Red knew he had met his match.
More on that tomorrow!!
