A few birds

Turdus migratorius (American Robin) This guy is a friend of mine and we have known each other for a couple of years now. He creates a nest in my Catalpa Tree each spring and I always make worm hunting a breeze for him. I recognize him by the fact that he has one back feather always out of place, not seen here. We are buddies really, he has no fear of me at all.

This Cardinalis cardinalis (Northern Cardinal) has a nest near by and he is a real talker. I love their song and it is so distinctive. These are my favourite song bird for show. If you never seen one it is hard to believe how red their red really is. The male does lose some of that brilliance after the mating but is still amazing.

Passer domesticus (House Sparrow) These guys are so common here that it is hard to remember that they are a transplant from England. They are a wonderful social bird that really carries on. O man can these guys fight and carry on. I understand that they have been so successful that they have displaced many native birds.


  1. dear sonny..why would any of these little birds be afraid of you?
    you are a gentle soul and they know that!..love terry

  2. That is so nice of you to say. I seem to with out trying. I guess it is the fact that I show them respect and I receive as much in return. A real win for me as They always just keep doing their thing when I am around
