Beautiful Bird

Posted by on 23 May 2008 | Tagged as: Other Animals

Here is a photo Kathryn took of a really beautiful bird. (Unfortunately, it was no longer alive.) We thought it was an adult female Pyrrhuloxia (a type of cardinal). Her red eyebrow was very unique. But, in our Sibley guide, those have a yellow bill. So, I believe it may be a female Northern Cardinal. They do have the red-orange bill but in Sibley, no eyebrow and black around the bill. Maybe she is a new blend!!

Nibbles

This is Nibbles. She was abandoned by her mother the day she was born so we bottle fed her. Then, adopted her out to Emily and her family. Nibbles does not know she is a sheep. When Austin (another lamb – son of Mrs. Bigglesworth and brother to Mini Me) went to live with Nibbles, Nibbles thought Austin was her pet! Both sheep are doing well at their new
