  2. All nice feathers, but that Cardinal just calls to me. We don’t see many up here so I thank you for sharing that handsome guy. 🙂

  3. Great photos. Your photos remind me that I have some photos of a Korowhai – a Maori feather cloak. I should look it up (sigh) and use next week.

    • I’m sure indigenous peoples have wonderful crafts. For obvious reasons, I’m not familiar with crafts from other continents. I always wanted to visit New Zealand … even more now that it is where the Hobbits live 🙂

  5. The birds are adorable! Huge, but so darn cute. The first bird looks like he is wearing a fur coat. Great snaps, Marilyn.

  6. You have interesting bird visitors. We do not get the colourful birds here, just the normal garden birds.

    • We have so many rivers and ponds and swamps which are natural nesting areas for water fowl, so it attracts them. Lots of geese, swans, ducks herons, egrets. Since the drought got worse, I see fewer birds than just a few years ago.

      The only really bright garden bird we get is the that scarlet cardinal. We used to have a nesting pair on our property, but I haven’t see them or heard their call this season. I think all those caterpillars messed with the life cycle of everything.
