I've used most of these quotes for bird photos before. They make me laugh so I'm using them again with some new pics in this scheduled post.
“When birds burp, it must taste like bugs.” ~ Bill WattersonA robin showing off how the early bird catches the worm.
“I don't like small birds. They hop around so merrily outside my window, looking so innocent. but I know that secretly, they're watching my every move and plotting to beat me over the head with a large steel pipe and take my shoe.” ~ Jack HandyA Catbird - I hear them all the time but they're elusive and I find them difficult to see. Frank spotted this one.
“Did St. Francis preach to the birds? Whatever for? If he really liked birds he would have done better to preach to the cats.”A young Grackle

"What is it about a beautiful sunny afternoon, with the birds singing and the wind rustling through the leaves, that makes you want to get drunk?" ~ Jack Handy
I liked the diagonal line created by the angle of the fence. A male Red-winged blackbird poses nicely.
“The bird thinks it a favor to give the fish a lift in the air” ~ Rabindranath TagoreThat wonderful fishing bird, the Great Blue Heron with a catch. I'm not sure what - perhaps a frog or a crayfish.
"If I could come back as anything - I'd be a bird, first, but definitely the command key is my second choice." (Control key for you non-Mac users) ~ Nikki GiovanniHere's Mr. Blue again, trying to regain his balance after stepping in a little too deep.
"Growing up, my Mom always claimed to feel bad when a bird would slam head-first into our living room window. If she really felt bad, though, she'd have moved the bird feeder outside." ~ Rich JohnsonA lovely young male Cardinal sits on the dock's railing. Isn't that a handsome crest on his head?
I'm still away from home, enjoying my time up at the cottage. This, along with the previous posts, was scheduled before I left home. This is the last one. Hopefully, I'll be back to catch up in real time before too long.
