I haven't snapped many birds this winter and one of the reasons is that we have had 2 uninvited cats hanging around our house. One of them, I'm afraid, has taken up permanent residence and the other is a frequent visitor.
Don't get me wrong, I'm quite fond of cats but I love my birds, too. The cats have been keeping my birds away from the feeders in the back yard. Well, at least during the times that the light is good and I want to shoot photos out my window!
This Tufted Titmouse was kind enough to sit still for a few shots today. He was a little nervous while watching one of the cats watching him.
Here she is looking up in the tree just behind her. She is almost grown and a sweet little kitty. We've been feeding her. After all, how can you turn away a hungry little beggar all alone in the world? Of course, the other cat that is a frequent visitor is a male. You know what that means. I hope we can find a good home for her.
I've been seeing Robins this week. This shot was taken just before I snapped the photos of the Titmouse and I have no idea why it turned out blurry. I love the first sighting of robins each year, that definitely tells me that spring is on the way!
Until next time...
