Three Birds, Two Cats

The cats and I walk together every day we possibly can. Because of the cats, the birds keep a close eye on us as they perch in the trees at the edge of the woods. John has made benches for me from trees that he culled in the woods. I sit on a bench as the cats hunt mice and the birds come out of the trees to watch and be photographed. As the summer progressed, I was able to get my first photographs of many different birds. I never realized in all these years how many species we have here. I miss those long summer days!

Young Oscar watches the birds watch him.

Waxwings always seem to stay at the top of trees.

At the end of our walk, we saw Grumpy Pansy scowling behind the barn.
