Visiting Birds

Tap, tap, tap!

Someone was knocking on the French doors.

It was those crazy graylag geese! The ones that attacked me. I did not invite them in. 

This was the third time they have done this. Whether they want something or are curious about their reflection, I don't know. 

There is a male cardinal who attacks my car because he sees his reflection. I cover the side mirrors when I park under his favorite tree, but that only helps a little. He can still see a reflection in the glass at times.

Wild Bird Wednesday

I don't think this cardinal is the same one. He lets the sparrow approach him while busy feeding. I've observed this many times.

The female cardinal is a striking bird. 

The little bird on a log is a junco. I believe the bird on the tall grass is a female purple finch.



  1. The bird on the tall grass is a Song Sparrow (Melospiza melodia).

  2. ...a wonderful collection.

  3. Great photos!
    Have a wonderful Day!

  4. It's the reflection they're curious about.

  5. When you find that you have lost your way, that there is no way out for you, know that your strength must be in the Lord. He will sustain you, He will lead you to green pastures 💖

  6. Beautiful collection of birds, I like the cute geese.

    Take care, have a great day!

  7. ... I wouldn't let the geese in either!

    All the best Jan
