Bird Watching From My Deck August 10, 2016

Here is a nice way to start the day – I spotted a red breasted finch in the tree in my neighbor’s garden.  These birds are too small for my camera to capture a good photo so the photos below are from the internet.

Katerina is off duty this morning- it’s sad for me when she kills one of these beautiful birds.  Fortunately it doesn’t happen very often.  She knows I don’t approve but she still presents me with her latest victim.


A few days ago she was stalking the birds and squirrels.
