OK, sometimes there are no interesting birds out when I am out. It is those times that you just have to look around for other things to photograph, or take photos of the common birds. Today's photos are a little of both, but I do like the cardinal photo. Every time I see a cardinal these days, I think of my friend Deb from British Columbia, who has never seen one except in photos. I think she'll like this one! It reminds me that birds that I find common may still be interesting to those who don't see them!
Black-capped Chickadee, the Massachusetts State Bird
(I've seen robins and bluebirds eating this during the winter months.)
Aren't these cute? They make me want to look around for a tiny troll.
Northern Cardinal (male) looking very fine
Still a few pretty leaves left
