What a windy day we had yesterday!
I looked out my window to see what was
happening around the bird feeder and
saw this pair of White-crowned Sparrows
sitting together looking like they were
having a conversation.
They sat this way for ever so long. Maybe they
were discussing what I was about to observe
and what I am about to show you.
The photos I'm about to show you contain a
disturbing image that may or may not
distress you. Just so you know.
Here they are:
Since I had my camera in hand, I thought I'd
check on my Bluebirds who had a nest in this
old house. Imagine my shock and horror
when I zoomed in on this snake wreaking
havoc on this little family!! I was just
If I thought I could have gotten there in time,
I would have gotten a garden hoe and gone to
work on this Bluebird destroyer!
I had just remarked recently that I hadn't seen
as many Bluebirds this year as I normally do.
Now I believe I know why.
I feel so bad for this little family. I didn't see
Mr. Bluebird the rest of the day that I was at home.
I'll watch for him and his Mrs. tomorrow. I do
hope that they will be able to have another family
this year. We need to get that birdhouse down and
clean it out and maybe put it elsewhere.
Mr. Bluebird has been so busy recently with tending
his family that I've not been able to get a good,
crisp shot. He wouldn't sit still for long. I wonder if
he'll sit still now while he's grieving for his young?
Until next time...
