This afternoon, one of my dear little feathered friends came by (along with his wife, I might add) and happily clung to the suet basket, where he pecked away at the goodies inside. I wish I knew if this couple was the same one that came to the feeder last year, but I cannot tell.
As soon as I saw the birds at the feeder, I grabbed the new Canon camera and turned it on. Slowly, I edged my way closer and closer to the window. The little male became curious as to why I was there and hopped from the suet basket to the feeder itself. He sat there, eyeballing me! It really was rather humorous and I did indeed get a couple of nice shots of him before he became fed up with this “game” and flew off!
I only wish all the birds would be so brave as this handsome little guy. I never grow tired of seeing these birds. The female is so drab…just plain brown with stripes. As an aside, take a gander at this fellow’s beak and you will see why it is nearly impossible to keep my windows clean! Yup…suet all over that gross beak!
