The unhappy cardinal

The cardinal was mighty suspicious of the spotted towhee that landed too close to its nest for its comfort.
The picture was taken with a DSLR from about fifteen yards away. The light was poor (only some sunset rays trickling in thru the forests) and I had to deal with the fact that the shot had to be taken thru two upright bars of the patio (you can see the white blur on either side). I dared not stand up to get a better shot lest the birds fly away…

      Since we are talking of birds, lets bring in the bard with the beard-

      “…thy words will take wing in songs from every one of my birds’ nests, and thy melodies will break forth in flowers in all my forest groves.”
      – Rabindranath Tagore
