I think I am officially a "bird-watcher" now! The birds have started coming more regularly and are growing bolder.
There were some beautiful tiny yellow birds (yes, I know, I should learn the names of these magnificent creatures) on the hanging bird feeder this morning, but I was unable to catch them. Still, I caught some shots of this splendid cardinal, who settled in to feed for several minutes:
Then, I managed to capture this small house finch (I think that is what it is called) right in front of me at the window feeder. He didn't even seem to know I was only inches away from him.
