Annoyed by mydigitalmind Annoyed by mydigitalmind
My entry for #Bird-Photography's Angry Birds contest. This Wren was making his alarm call because an outdoor cat walked by. He was NOT happy.

A great captured expression, birds have personalities that make them precious, my lovebird with the name Origins wild rah tut tut, shrugged it's shoulders in a rhythmical motion while it giggled & laughed. Thanks for sharing, the brilliant photo. 
I have recently digitally painted, a peacock in a portrait.I'm making more time for painting, but with full time & part time job I get frustrated,

They may have been Cranes - this is something you can only really see in the southern US! Cranes are hard to get where I am.

There are Sandhill Cranes in the US as well as the endangered Whooping Crane :) Sandhills have red on their heads.

Lovely shot. The details are wonderful. Were you up high, or was this little guy low, because your shot looks to be a eye level?

For this shot, I was above the bird (on my deck). HE was at my feeders on a branch a little bit below :)

I've always wanted a feeder because we have some really beautiful birds around here. In fact I do have a feeder, and the cats in the area would love it if I did use it. But for the safety of the little birds, I can't put it up.
I once did put up a hummingbird feeder, but the birds couldn't figure out what it was. *sigh*

I do have to have my feeders up high because at least one local outside cat stalks them all the time =\ He once jumped up and grabbed a finch right off the perch!! After that I raised everything up out of his reach. It's difficult though, with all of the other wildlife around. I even have to take them in every night so that the bears do not get to them!!

Bears? :wow: You must live in a pretty rural area. Where I live, we are lucky to see birds and a stray squirrel once in a while ( although I once saw two egrets walking in the ocean waves and here I only thought they stayed near fresh water). And once in a while I hear an owl.
