Time for a photo “roundup”… it’s so unique to Houston to be able to have a bustling city atmosphere and then 3 minutes later see Longhorns – gotta love Houston! 🙂

Dinner time for this Mockingbird
I’m not really sure if this is a Red Cardinal or not but I thought it was really pretty-If YOU know what it is, please tell me!
As y’all know, The Northern Red Cardinal (males) are my favorites…I love their curious and bold personalities too!
To me, there is just something magical about Red Cardinals!!
Love when I can see one of them mid-wardrobe change 🙂
These are one of the few birds that will still come and feed regardless of how close by I am with my camera. Love how they will reposition themselves too just to check out what I am doing or watch Max in the backyard.
Apologize for a lot of the photos here that are too dark, etc. but I thought…what the heck, if you’re a fellow bird lover and you don’t get to see these guys typically where you live, then you still might get a kick out of seeing them. (American White Ibis)
This struck me as odd as most of the Ibis have bright blue eyes-his were almost black.
When I usually see these guys, they are looking very intense and honestly, are way more pretty in color but I kinda liked this one’s almost calico look.
I know this is NOT a typical, beautiful photo of a Snowy Egret looking all pure white and regal but I thought it was funny how dirty looking this one was!
Those eyes look like they will pierce your soul!!! (Great Blue Heron)
Guess using a tripod on this one did make a big difference in clarity (I think I shake too much :)) (Black capped chickadee)
I swear there is this one Northern Cardinal (female) that is always stopping by and making silly faces at me.
These might be viewed as “boring” to many as there are TONS of these guys but to me, they are gorgeous and I love listening to their very odd noises!
Hello Mr. Bluejay! I think you’re funny because you are soooo aggressive in trying to scare the other birds in my backyard but let me come outside and you fly away faster than any of the rest!
This one just chased off a Red Cardinal – bully! 🙂
Maybe he’s just having a bad hair day!
Urrrrr…. I was soooo upset that I just couldn’t focus fast enough to grab this one correctly but still beautiful!! (Pileated Woodpecker) Interesting that they typical dig out rectangular holes in search of carpenter ants rather than circular ones.

My precious little pup and co-author – Max! Isn’t he the cutest??! I love this guy sooooo much!!!
Have a beautiful today!!!
