“Morning Meal”

“Morning Meal”

“…I keep looking for one more teacher, only to find that fish learn from the water and birds learn from the sky.” 
― Mark Nepo

This past Saturday was ‘bird day’ on our backyard. The yard filled with chickadees, wrens, juncos, blue jays, and cardinals. I put a terra cotta flower pot base on our barbeque to see if I could attract a few of them closer to the window. I did not have to wait for long till this bright red cardinal landed for his morning meal. Despite being a fairly dull day, I was able to get decent light on him to be able to show some detail. They are beautiful, aren’t they?

Other birds, including the female, sat in the nearby tree watching him, but none approached the dish, even after he left, which seemed odd.
