I have a Picture Window in my den.
Mostly I use my Picture Window to look out of. But to the critters in the backyard, my Picture Window is their view in. That’s Taffy (above) checking out the view in. If you think it might be disconcerting to have a cat watching you from the other side of your Picture Window,
try getting the Hairy Eyeball from a Blue Jay.
Or the Frank Curiosity of a Cardinal:
You might have noticed that it was snowing when I took these pictures out of my Picture Window on Wednesday. Snowy days are surprisingly good days for bird watching,
just ask Lickety,
who got on the cardinal’s nerves,
so he took off and flew up into the tree
to hang out with his pals,
where there was a Blue Jay in a bad mood (what else is new?) who didn’t like sharing his tree with the Red Riding Hood Gang so he dive-bombed them
in a vain attempt to claim all the branches for himself. What? You don’t see the Blue Jay here? In flight? In the lower left hand corner?
Here he is:
See that blur?
Taffy missed it too.
There’s nothing better than watching the world out of your Picture Window.
