This male Northern Cardinal was flying between the shrubbery and the thickly leafed Magnolia Tree where I took its picture. The little Black-capped Chickadee was trying to find a tasty bite up in the Live Oak in my front yard. My front yard is very shady as I have two large Oaks and a medium-sized Magnolia. On that humid cloudy day the birds were hiding in deep shady leaves. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. I took these pictures on August 6, 2014 in my yard and also across the street near a rainfall retention basin. Enjoy!
