    Winged Elegance And The Lowly Observer

    What I investigate out of my window on this brisk, bright winter Sunday morning is no less than simple elegance in pure jamboree. I ponder, I spy, and I worship here. Small birds are sitting in the naked trees. They patiently await their turn at this morning’s window offerings...

    Misunderstood

    I have grown up with birds and I really love them. I especially love parrots. I have three of them now and I love them all so much. I really love to hold them and play with them. I hate how people misunderstand parrots and think they're all loud, messy, bite all the time, and...

    Bird Of Paradise

    Do animals have a sixth sense? A story taken from the Herald Sun newspaper. Susan thinks they might. Her father-in-law was from Malta and loved birds. His life-long wish was to see a king parrot in the wild, but he never did. Family and friends gathered at Joe's home for the...

    just sitting there, two seagulls. With the sounds of hundreds in another field behind us. A few other seagulls tried to join, but were flapped away by one of the two. Protection of his mate, I had thought they might be lovebirds. I brought them some food, as close as I could get...

    Ducks

    I have never owned a bird (I have 3 cats) but I love the creatures.  There is a local park I go to regularly and I feed the ducks, geese, pigeons and gulls there.  It is one of my ways to relax and sort out what's going on in my life while communing with nature.

    This poor bird got robbed off of his precious catch. If I had a powerful lens I would have got more clear shots. But it was still fun to take these pictures and share them with my friends.

    who landed on my patio door. "You, are a wood ******, aren't you?" As if in confirmation he makes a pecking motion. "My are you beautiful!" And off he flies. "Bye, thanks for visiting!"

    I went and got several hummingbird feeders.

    The hummers are everywhere. Tweeting and buzzing by...such spitfire birds. Anyways, I bought these one dollar ones and placed them around. Before I knew it ...they were coming out of the woods. I got to fetch me some more. Those little speed-demons are very entertaining.
