I had time today to watch my yard for visitors here in North Texas. My first guest was unexpected - a hawk arrived this morning looking for a chicken dinner - luckily all my hens were safely in their pen - what a beautiful bird! For the record - in addition to the birds that I snapped pictures of, I also had a visit from a killdeer.
Another Female Cardinal
A blurry picture - but I got a shot of a male and female cardinal together.
This is a newcomer to my yard - I have never seen one of these before! It is a very small bird with yellow cast to its wings. It is a ruby crowned kinglet. I saw a red patch on it!
