BIRD WEEKLY – PHOTO CHALLENGE – BIRDS ON A WIRE OR A FENCE

BIRD WEEKLY – PHOTO CHALLENGE – BIRDS ON A WIRE OR A FENCE

Oh happy day! There’s a railing around my deck and the birds sometime stand on it. And, I sometimes get a picture of them standing on it!

  1. These pictures are lovely, Marilyn, especially the cardinal at the top. It’s colouring is amazing.

    • Amazing and definitely unique. We have quite a lot of cardinals. Obviously just one male which last year was orange but this year is red. I can’t tell if it’s the same cardinal with a shift in colors, but this one looks smaller than the orange one from last year, so I’m assuming he’s the new guy in town.

      But what a set of colors! Might be interesting babies!

  2. Fantastic gallery of birds this week! Yay for the deck railing. The Cardinal is a unique color. Maybe a juvenile 1st year? Odd! 🙂

    • I’ve never seen one with those colors. From his feathering, he simply can’t be THAT young. He’s well past fledgling. We had orange Cardinals, and now they are back to red again. I have a feeling this gal is a mix. Very interesting! Also, we have a LOT of females. Just one red boy, but easily six or seven ladies, many of whom were the offspring of last year’s orange male.

      • That is very cool! We usually have pairs. I see them already starting to hang out together. Last year, we had 3 pairs. One had a nest and the babies didn’t make it because of a Red-shoulders hawk.

        • I thought they were paired too, but I’ve seen at least half a dozen girls, some of them in groups on the deck. They may not all be mated yet. I do know that you never see more than one male at a time because when they get near each other, the boys fight.

          • The male dominance for Cardinals here isn’t that obvious. Probably because by the time they get to my yard, they have their mates. They build their nests, have their chicks, raise them and some stay and some go. We have Cardinals year-round in our backyard though. Sometimes there will be 2 females, but another male will show up. Isn’t it interesting how they behave differently in different areas? 🙂
