    …and it’s an excellent side!
    I love the red cardinals. I wish we had them here. Great photo, Pat.
    By the way, yesterday was the first day a squirrel made it onto our 2nd floor deck where all the bird feeders are. We’ve seen him in the trees in yard all this time, but has always stayed away. He came on the deck again this morning, trying to get to the feeders, but hasn’t been successful yet. I’m sure he will figure it out – LOL! Do you have recommendations on squirrel guards for the feeders.
    Maybe he will pose for me and let me get a good photo of him.

  21. he´s lerning fast. 🙂 Great shot.

  22. Gail says:

  26. Great shot, Pat! Bet he can’t wait ’til he has feathers like Dad’s.

  27. Anni says:

    Sorry, I’m a bit late in visiting, but, have had a couple of days where the computer is not very cooperative!!
