Bad 'feather' day

We've had a bit of rain off and on up here in Maine the last several days.  
But no matter.  
It is still beautiful.

I dug around in my archives and found these photos I took a few weeks ago when we were having some rains in Philly.

 These guys were a bit displeased with the weather.

But it didn't hold them back to visit the feeders.





Gluttons that they are!

I think this little girl was giving me the stink eye!
What do you think?

Later, my friends,

that young cardinal looks dreadful! wish we could have some of your rain - or better yet, ship it to colorado!

Sylvia K said...

They do look pretty miffed about the weather and their feathers, don't they!! Love your captures as always, Reena! We surely don't need any more rain here in the northwest and I would gladly ship it to Colorado, too! hope you have a great weekend!

The second bird doesn't look very happy! In fact, it looks downright angry... beautiful pics!

Fantastic colors! They look bummed, but rain tends to bring out the worms for a smorgasbord.

Brian Miller said...

haha i bet she is if you are inside and dry..the rain has a pretty cool effect on their feathers though...

Gillian Olson said...

They do not seem to have enjoyed the rain, and I think you ae right about getting the stink-eye from the cardinal.

Though disheveled, they are such magnificent creatures!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Haha, yep, that looks like stink eye. Can't blame her though. Poor birds. At least they got a good shower.

They do look so sad and pathetic:( Gorgeous photos Reena!

Pat said...

The poor little things, what they need is a gigantic globe with a lot of food. Though, it wouldn't be a great photos like yours.

I love these photos.
The Birds look like they flew into the washer, then went to the dryer with the clothes.
Great shots.

Hilary said...

That's hilarious. I got some photos of a totally drenched mourning dove the other day. That look from the cardinal is a hoot.

Ivanhoe said...

They do look little disfeathered. Hahaha! But still quite pretty :)

AWWW, they are looking pretty sad and soaked. But, I love the photos, they look cute.

I watched a red-headed woodpecker flying through a lawn sprinkler today. He wanted to get wet! Couldn't get any pics though.

CherryPie said...

Very pretty despite the bad hair :-)

Catherine said...

Angry wet birds are horribly cute! LOL!
Have a happy weekend!

Jennifer Richardson said...

just looking at your rain drenched
beauties makes me feel less thirsty
for the hard cracked ground outside.
usually, i'm outside too
but it's so horrid hot today
i'm tucked inside in the shade.
grateful for your rain shots,
Jennifer

Rose L said...

The red & yellow
bird definitely looks a bit peeved.

Lisa Gordon said...

They are adorable, Reen.
I think you just may be right about the last one! :-)

Dianne said...

I look like that a lot
their ruffled feathers make them even more sweet
