Showing one’s true colors! (Macro Monday)

The cheeky Stella Jay birds enjoy sitting on the branches directly outside the kitchen window, taunting the cats with their closeness, safe in the knowledge the cats are unable to make contact.

The Stella’s also seem to know when I’m attempting to photograph them. Just when I have the photo set-up, boom, the birds move. That’s okay, I prefer their stunning blue color over their boisterous character anyways!

Just below me on the rocks! (Feathered Friday)

What a delight to see one of my Bald Eagles down on the rocky beach below our house instead of tucked away on the branches of our tree. The branches which neither face our house nor allow me a clear view of them, grrr!

With such an abundance of bird life this spring I thought I’d begin a “Feathered Friday” to introduce you to just a few of the new, and not so new, arrivals!
