Our Fat Feathered Friend
On Sunday morning, I walked outside and found a fat little bird sitting on the walk. He didn't seem particularly upset that I was walking toward him until I was about 2 feet away. Then he hopped up on the bird feeder and waited for me to leave.
Yesterday morning he was sitting on the deck railing, right next to the feeder, just basking in the early morning sunshine. I walked out, again to within a few feet of him, and snapped this photo of what I think is a Red-headed Cowbird. Whatever he is, watching him enjoy the feeders makes the chores of filling them and cleaning up the mess worth the effort.
