A/Alphabe-Thursday

 Angry grackle

A is for ANGRY and/or ANNOYED birds.

Truth be told, I don't often see many angry birds. Annoyed, yes, but not angry.  The  grackle above clearly has ruffled feathers, though. It's at a seed feeder and, since I cannot remember, I'm guessing it's trying to scare off a squirrel or chipmunk.

 Scared (and angry) Canada goose

I didn't see what happened but it's very odd to see a goose standing on a railing hissing at people who are feeding them .

 Head down and hissing

Not angry but looking annoyed

There was no way this guy wanted to eat seed when so many people were looking at him. But he was hungry and willing to wait in the shrubbery. He seemed to be thinking "When are you going away?"

the cardinal made me laugh, he does indeed look a tad annoyed at the camera.. having been on the hissed at side from geese, i can skip right by them.. they can and do get really angry...

Judy said...

It seems like grackles are always angry about something. They don't scare me but if I saw a goose looking like that, I would be slowly backing away.
I never see cardinals around here, so that picture is a real treat.

These are really fun captures. I've never seen a goose off the ground like that! And the grackle looks really angry at something. Great pics!

I love the colors on the first one - so striking!

Great captures, EG. Not sure which I like best, but probably that handsome cardinal.

These are some great shots! Oh, how well I remember being chased by some angry geese when I was a girl!

Esther Joy said...

Your comment feed was almost as interesting as your post! I don't think I can top any of those comments!

William Kendall said...

Terrific shots! They do look either fierce or displeased!

Randy said...

Must have just been that kind of day.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

Even the cardinal seems to have something to say.

Kate said...

The cardinal is beautiful even if he looks a bit grim. The others are hilarious in their anger.

wow! you certainly captured these birds well ~ gorgeous photography ~ thanks, carol, xxx

Rose Clearfield said...

Great idea for a theme! Those birds do look ticked off.

Sue McPeak said...

Beautiful Bird Photos, and a great theme for the Letter A. I'm always amazed at how Cardinals will wait and wait...good for a photo shoot. The cackle on the other hand is a pest and often an 'Angry Bird'.

That cardinal is beautiful, but I love the electric blue on the grackle.

So glad you posted on real angry birds not the tedious game x

Sue said...

Wonder if they take time off for video games?

Jenny said...

Such beautiful captures!

You totally caught the angry look on that grackles face. They are so darned grumpy. I think they might be some long lost cousins, or something - ha!

Thanks for linking and Happy Thanksgiving!
