Cardinal in the White Ash tree .. How brightly those red feathers appear with the winter colors around him .. Taken in 2016 by my daughter when she came for a visit [ from Montana ] "Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory." Dr. Seuss
'I heard something' ..
American Robin - stopping to listen - then chirping to let me know "I'm still here" - another step - snack searching
Do I have to - stop - listen - search - and get it myself ? Or Are you going to tell me where the best earthworms are? It would be appreciated.. - 1 PiP - ** EXPLORE **

Excuse Me ...
Dear Lady with the camera - It is supper time for our little ones - We both have it ready - But you know we will not go to the nest - When you are out here - Please go someplace else - The kids are hungry - .. at least that is my interpretation of Mockingbird-speak .. 1 PiP © All Rights Reserved --EXPLORE--
Only Family ..
Portrait ? Probably .. Neither parent was happy .. I was too close to the 'kids' .. Thought I'd just sort of walk past the nest .. If you've ever seen Mockingbirds upset .. That was it ! They took turns flying up .. White feathers displayed .. And very vocal .. Have seen Mockingbirds attack felines .. When they were just walking in the yard in Florida .. Minding their own business .. I didn't plan on getting attacked .. So, quick shot and I was out of there! All was fine with the Mockingbird Parents then. Oh, but went too close to the House Finch nest that is still under construction .. Poppa Finch was in fine voice ! *** 3 PiP *** © All Rights Reserved --EXPLORE--
