Twas a Quiet Day

When from the yard I heard such a loud bird chatter.


I flew to the window to see what was the matter.


Lil' Red and Mr Blue were on alert and hiding in a tree.


While Squirrely was squawking as loud as could be. 


Stepping outside I spied a Mockingbird fearlessly dive bombing a Red-shouldered hawk perched on a pole.

Unperturbed,  the hawk contently sat there watching the bird and I stalking him :)

Hej Pam
The squirrel is just super sweet. I also have  some in the garden here. It is so wonderful
when they jump from tree to tree.
Merry Christmas!

what a lovely set of photos, another time I am a bit no quite envious of the lovely creatures that others come so close to..we are in the middle of an ancient village and not too much of a variety here and this year we've only seen three squirrels. I enjoyed seeing these beautiful creatures.

Wow, what a sight! The bird kingdom was all up in arms I'll bet. Love your shots, Pam! And your cute poem.

Oh wow. It was several nights before Christmas and all through the house ... not a mouse would have had the courage to stirr.
Love the photos, and the poem. Thank you.
