A spot of red

Cardinal

I went out last night to photograph some bald eagles but flood waters made it impossible to get close enough to the nest. I had to settle for a picture of a cardinal. They are not as easy to photograph as you might think. They hop around in the bushes and hide behind the branches.

Great Blue Heron

I found the heron in pickerel lake.  The road was closed due to high water or there would have been too many cars and bikes coming by and scaring the birds away. If you look closely it looks like there are some turtles sitting on the log with the heron. 

For the birds

Bird house

Every year I put a bird house on the front porch and every year I complain because the birds wake me up  so early.  This year I put it on the back porch.  The birds are right outside my office. It is kind of a distraction but I don’t mind.
