...a bird's eye view

I don't often get to see birds from above! I like the view...

A female Northern Cardinal perched in a crab apple tree beneath our family room window.
Happy New Year!

Becky says, "Oh how cute."

You got to love the color pallet of this bird.

Always a nice perspective to view birds. One of my fav things to do is sit on the top of a cliff and watch seabirds like auks and kittiwakes and fulmars flying down below me. Have a fabulous birding New Year Kelly!

I love seeing the birds from up above. I really enjoy watching our ground feeding sparrows and juncos from up above on the deck. The different perspective is good!
