What an interesting little bird? It almost looks like those parts shouldn't go together- Its feet are huge compared to its body and the curving bill is longer than its head. I was lucky enough to have this feathery sprite land our our giant bur oak tree. Megan and I were standing in the Kitchen when it flew onto the trunk and slowly made its way up, investigating the furrows of the oak bark.
As it climbed upward, I went upward as well, to our our upstairs bathroom. I followed it as it ascended up and directly over my head. I had removed the screen of our bathroom window and stuck my head and camera out the window.
I found myself pointing the camera straight up for the last shot. And as quickly as it came, with a few squeaks, it was gone.
P.S. 24 days and counting! Wow!~
