Learning to Fly



It's time to fly for this baby redbird!

Guest photographer Christine Weerts noticed the young cardinal sitting in one of her pine trees while its parents hovered nearby, no doubt protecting him from a cat under the tree. She was able to convince the cat to leave so that "Junior" could finish his flying lesson.

I'm glad the cat didn't get him.

What a fine photo...that's why every bird needs a dog - to chase the cats.
