We're Outta Here!

My contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #119.

I've often seen Mrs. House Sparrow on the left from the 2nd floor window and wondered, "What's up with that beak?" Now I can see it's a white patch of feathers on her forehead.

Here's Theda working hard at protecting the house:

Mr. Cardinal says, "I'm the star of this show!"

We're outta here!

We're outta here, part 2! (And I'm also linking to Anni's I'd Rather B Birdin'):

Mr Cardinal does have star power! Hey, I'll be heading down to Prince William County for three days, e-mail me if you want to get together.

Theda's working so hard I think she deserves a few extra doggy biscuits today.

Your sweet Theda looks a lot like our Sandy. They could be sisters! Interesting coloring or feather mutation on the sparrow. Have a great week!
