The cardinals were back in the yard today, and one of the males flew into the sliding glass door. He seemed to be all right, just a little shaken up by the surprise of the glass door, and he stayed near the door for a few minutes before he flew away. I got my camera and took some photos through the door. Here he is on the bottom pool step after his accident.

He seemed to be wondering what had happened.

He kept looking toward the door.

But he seemed fine when he flew off to join the other cardinals in the trees. Here’s one of the female cardinals.

The male Downy woodpecker was out today. Even at a distance you can see that red on the back of his head.

And there was a squirrel running along the fence that stopped and posed when it saw me and the camera. (The white streaks are rain falling.)
