Chili Weather

The gray and chilly weather made today seem perfect for…well…chili!  And for taking bird pictures, of course.

So after a warm and delicious bowl of the aforementioned for lunch, paired with some Tuscan garlic bread the lady from Publix talked me into, I bundled up and went out on the deck with my camera.  There was quite a flurry of activity at the feeders, but I’ll just share a few of the birds that haven’t made as many appearances on posts lately.

The Warblers were some of the first to arrive…a Yellow-rumped followed by a male and a female Pine Warbler.

Then a Thrasher popped in with a peanut he took to the water dish.


The birds that were out in abundance this afternoon were the Cardinals.  They were all over the place. I love the subtle beauty of the female…

…but the male Cardinal was by far the most brilliant bird against the day’s rather dull backdrop.

Dull lighting?  Perhaps.  But never a dull moment with all the bird activity!
