Oak titmouse in the backyard
What luck to get this shot of the oak titmouse through our kitchen window!
These birds are small, yet have very bold, elaborate calls and songs.
It is always such a surprise to hear their strong, clear and multi-layered songs in the trees and shrubs around the garden, and then suddenly spot them, little gray birds.
The oak titmice are very elusive birds, so I have very few images of them.
This one suddenly flew into our backyard, hopping around the shrubs.
Fortunately I had my camera nearby on the kitchen table.
The bird stood just for a second or two on the moon sculpture, and then flew away.
