In the summer I can hear them rustling the leaves but they are able to hide better.
I already posted a black and white version of the next frosty shot but I also like it in full color so I'm using it here.
The female cardinal was drying off from a bath on my deck.
My oak trees have just about dropped the last of their leaves.
I like the way the water was beading up on the male cardinal.
The blue jay was playing peek-a-boo.
The male cardinal turned his nose up at me.
Then he showed me his profile.
I love the way trees look in the winter when they have first dropped off their clothing.
The rufous-sided towhee was taking a bath in my front yard.
The tufted titmouse was waiting its turn for a bath in my front yard.
The sparrow beat the titmouse into the bath.
The red-wing blackbird looked around probably hoping I'd add some water to the bath which I did.
The bluejay on my deck looked beautiful.
