Not Just Dirt (don't look Liz)

I was not having any luck getting a picture of the birds bathing in the stream when I saw this little guy crossing the yard. He's lucky I saw him at all since he is the color of dirt.

Well that is just the oddest looking bird I have ever seen! :)

Hope Liz doesn't see this! She was on vacation when I had mine posted, so I don't believe she ever saw it, thank God! Your kind sue does blend right in, doesn't it.

Sharp eye you have.

He has amazing camouflage on!
Does Giz ever come up to them and make them jump?!
Or is he used to the parade of critters going to and from his yard?! LOL

1. JackDaddy .. Birds weren't co-operating.

2. Kathy ..If it isn't food or it doesn't stink, Giz just doesn't care.

3. The toad in the picture is bigger than the real toad. I almost stepped on him.

We haven't seen as many frogs as usual this year...maybe that big, black snake scared them all away...

B it is confirmed you have the best eyesight...the things you find to photograph that are virtually hidden are amazing.
Well done,
Madi and Mom

Hey Giz - If you couldn't find me, does that mean I was lost? Good grief. I didn't even know. I'll let you in on a little secret... sometimes I get something called blogitis and it makes me want to commit blogicide. I have to go hide under the covers for a few days and then I'm usually ok. Thanks for your concern:)

You do find interesting things to photograph... let's declare today toaday!
