Birds Of A Feather Flock Together


Strange phrase that is , all birds have feathers and flock together well most flock together  lol 

Our birdies have been feasting since the temps have dropped and we have been getting frost over nights and in the mornings !

DECEMBER 2014 (7 of 11)-2

                          Two male Cardinals and one female Cardinal were scratching about  our big tree near the feeders .

DECEMBER 2014 (9 of 11)-2

Then all of a sudden all the birdies took off like a shot as this hawk was about darting in and out of the Cedars and then landed in the back of the yard . I had to be quiet and fast to get a shot or two of him !

DECEMBER 2014 (5 of 7)-2

Then after the hawk flew away I spotted George on the feeder looking about and trying to figure out how to get to the seed lol !

DECEMBER 2014 (6 of 11)-2

Then I spotted these guys again as they came back to their feeding spot now that it was safe and the hawk was gone !

Birds of a feather flock together as they all left and returned at the same time . Actually the phrase doesn’t mean anything about birds It really means  People tend to associate with those who share similar interests or values don't know why they didn’t call  it something else then lol  but then you really think about it , it can be associated with birds as this is true for them ! lol !

                                                                    This phrase is over 450 years

                Just a brain tease on phrases here  lol ! Things  that make you go UMM !! WHAT ? lol !

                                                                               Until next time .

Hi there, I love your Cardinals-we don't have any here or many colorful birds. Lots of hawks and doves but that is about it.

What incredible shots. I love how you captured all of that. I never can catch that drama when the hawks and crows come in.
I love those cardinals.

We have a regular sparrow hawk that tends to panic the doves and the one that flies into the window and stuns itself is the one that gets caught! Poor little things but that's nature I suppose! I would never have thought that the saying would be 450 years old. Be careful in the snow when it reaches you. xx

The hawk certainly looks all-business.

Lucky you getting cardinals in your yard! There were a lot of birds feeding this cold day including a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers. I wish you a Happy New Year!

What a surprise that hawk gave everyone!

We have a hawk in our neighborhood that clears the feeding areas, too.

Hadn't seen many male cardinals at our feeders until today. There were at least ten of them at and under the feeders. I sat by the window for a long time watching the flashes of red on an otherwise dready day.

You got wonderful bird shots! I have been meaning to pick up some bird seed. But we have not had any real snow yet, so no harm done.

Amy at love made my home said...

I hope that your New Year will be wonderful! Best wishes for all good things in 2015 to you and yours! Wonderful bird photos too! xx

As I have said before, I do miss the cardinals of SW Ont.

Great shots! That hawk was a nice capture. These birds don't stick around for too long, and it's always a treat when you get a photo of them.

Happy New Year!
