Today we heard a loud thump, something hitting the front door. As my husband Terry went to investigate, he discovered a little female cardinal had hit the glass on the front door.
He picked the cardinal up, she seemed a little disoriented but not injured. After several minutes of petting her, he handed her to me and I started stroking her. (I think she was enjoying the attention.).
After several minutes had passed, she was able to fly on her own. She headed for the front tree.
I checked on her to make sure she was ok. She was able to join the rest of her family. She seems fine. Today was a good day.
Hi everyone. This is going to be short and sweet.....And sweet it is....I just couldn't resist sharing this with ya'll. As you know I take pictures everyday. Yesterday seemed like a Robin and Cardinal day.
So here comes a beautiful Cardinal...As I captured this picture, it made me laugh out loud...How much funnier can a bird be.
You know they are always up to something, jumping on top of each other to move them away, flying into each other, bopping around on the ground.
Now you look at this picture and see if he doesn't belong to the Simpson's...I call him the Bart Simpson of birds with that big high hair....He was just a mess, wonder why he didn't comb his hair or at least put some gel on it to hold it in place...
I hope ya'll enjoy this one, I doubt I'll even see another one. Hope this makes you laugh and makes your day...It certainly made my day.
Today our school had a field trip-to our backyard. In fact as the day has gone by it has become our classroom for most subjects.
For several weeks we watched a soon to be momma Cardinal build her nest and to our joy we soon heard sweet, high pitched chirps above our heads in our Date Palm Tree.
My two children have greatly enjoyed watching the mom and dad take such good care of their brood and this morning we were able to make it out in time to see the last one in it's nest.
We've had great concerns regarding two neighboring cats, and, in fact, during our devotions under the palm tree this morning we watched as the mom and dad cardinal flew over our gate and into a tree over the driveway.
My son was curious so he opened the gate and to his horror one of the cats was batting around a robin near the tree!
A rescue mission ensued and the poor robin eventually, with it's sliced up back, was able to hop into our front yard and fly into the tree there.
We immediately went back to guarding our backyard, with schoolwork in hand, sorting out mixed fractions while keeping a keen eye out for a cat prowling for the babies (who had made their way to our brush pile).
As of this writing we can now only see one baby and it ended up getting a beautiful bluebird to come sit above and watch it on our privacy fence.
We will be praying for the little birds to make it in this suburban cat playing field which has become our classroom of appreciation for God's amazing creation! We give Him an A-Plus!
