a visitor

I was riding in a car and a friend had to make a quick stop at a house to drop something off.  We were told that there was a bird around who loves to fly on to parked car mirrors and then check himself out in the mirror.  He flew by, landed and did exactly that.  It happened so fast that these are the only photos I got and they are blurry but you get the idea. :)
Photo taken a few years ago.

  1. Believe it or not... birds don’t see a reflection they see an intruder.
    Blurry or not you still got some interesting photos.

  10. Poor bird. Every parked car brings a rival to his territory. Good catch on the pix, blurry or not.

  13. Great new header. Corvids have been known to look at themselves in a mirror thinking they are looking at another bird.
