A Tilted Head (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

Almost every male cardinal I have seen, given time,will do this head-tilting thing. I am not sure if it has to do with its eyes or with some expression of interest. I know if I wait just a minute or so they are likely to do this. However, this is the first cardinal to tilt its head both ways over a very short period of time. Who knows what the cardinal sees but it does make for an attractive pose.

  1. I think they tilt their head to get a clear view above them. Predators like hawks come from above. A cooper’s hawk got one of our cardinals a few weeks ago, right at dusk when they are one of the last birds to feed. Sad, but its the law of the jungle.
