Backyard Birds and a Lizard

I recently moved my feeders to yet another new spot, because I wasn’t happy with picture-taking possibilities where it was. Too much stuff in the way, including my car.

I’ll likely have to contend with squirrels now, because the pole is in the backyard near the woods, but that’s a price I’m willing to pay. Plus Suki loves chasing squirrels. 😉

The cardinals are still absent, but everyone else has found the new location. The bluejays were first.

They were quickly followed by the Brewer’s blackbirds. Not a pretty bird, but handsome and exhibiting beautiful colors in the sun.

Grackles, of course. 

The sandhill crane is still around, though I took this picture elsewhere.

Lastly, a lanai lizard. I still love having them around.

See you next time.

      Thanks. 🙂 It’s just as difficult taking pictures of common feeder birds as it is those in the wild. All the same factors are in play. I’m always pleased when I capture them in a wonderful pose.

      🙂 Thanks, Beth. If you search on flash fic, you’ll find all kinds of little stories to read, all under a thousand words. Free reads give you longer ones.
