Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Wild Bird Wednesday - Fluff Dry Cycle





A Kentucky Cardinal drying out after a really heavy rain storm.  Could just as easily title this post "angry bird" , based on his look. :-)


Bonus photo: not a very good one, but just happened to catch this sweet couple sitting on my neighbor's fence. 

Linking to Wild Bird Wednesday .

Great photos. I'd love any chance to photograph a cardinal - we don't have them out here on the west coast. I got one quick shot of one in Wisconsin last summer on vacation - he was sitting on a fence and flitted off right after I took the picture and that was the only one we saw the whole time.

I'll repeat - perfect title and angry bird fits the last one by the looks on the Mrs. face. :)
There they sit like an old married couple - so sweet.

Sadly, I haven't seen any cardinals since the feeders came down. Wonderful shots!

So nice to get both of the pair in one frame. Although they nest nearby, they do not come to our neighbor's black oil sunflower seed feeder (we are on the lake and cannot put one up because of the ducks-- it is illegal to feed them and they break up the feeders anyway).
