    My little parrots. Their little warm breath

    is the purity of life. They have never broken a piece of my heart, but have added layers of laughter to my life. I can be in the saddest of places and yet be inspired to let out a cry of joy at their perpetual antics. I love providing them a spoiled life as lives should be made...

    I might have spoken about this in a different

    posting, once before...A few years ago, I held a wild kestrel in my hand. It was an amazing moment. I rescued it, because it was trapped in a stair. I threw my jacket over it to catch it, then took it outside and unwrapped it and held a wild bird of prey in my hand.It stayed...

    Fish Snatchers!!

    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.

    Every type, from the smallest hummingbird to

    the biggest ostrich. They fascinate me and basically just make me happy. :)

    A blue Jay has been coming around in the

    mornings to announce his hunger. I slather peanut butter between a dark whole grain bread, rip it into chunks and throw it on the boulevard grass. Yesterday I bought a bag of unsalted shelled peanuts and throw a handful out. He can fight with the squirrel, it's not my war...

    Baby Pigeon

    Found this cute little baby bird resting on top the lavender bush in the garden.  I think it was a baby pigeon that had fallen from a tree.

    Mostly I see sea birds,

    but sometimes I go to the mountain. It's amazing how many red kites are there. Someone told me they were almost extinct but they seem pretty healthy now. They are beautiful birds.

    At the cabin, by a watery/muddy area,

    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...

    The birds possess an honour

    and courage that man does not possess. Man lives in the shadow of laws and customs which he made and fashioned for himself , but the birds live according to the same free Eternal Law which causes the earth to pursue its mighty path about the sun.

    "Well, hi, there." I address the visitor

    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!"

    There are so many unusual birds

    where I live. I live near an old dock. There is a pontoon in the dock. Today when I walked home from school there was a heron and two cormorants on the pontoon. One of the cormorants had its wings spread. They stand like that for hours.

    I live by a dock. I walked past it today on my

    way to town. There was a cormorant fishing just a few metres away. Every minute or so it dived and stayed under water for a while. It didn't seem to notice I was there. And there was a heron sitting on one of the pontoons. It didn't seem to be interested in fishing. Perhaps it...

    I love the way we see different birds

    as the year goes by. I live by the sea. The swallows have gone. Even the horrible geese have gone. But some are still here. The swans, egrets and cormorants.

    My Budgies.

    I grew up with pets here and there, but my favorites were the budgies. We had an Ernie for awhile, but I didn't know if there was a Bert. Ernie was scrawny and sickly, and didn't last long. We had a snowflake for awhile, named so for the blue feathery chest with little bits of...

    Interesting to watch the speed of birds,

    avoiding obstacles at such high speeds. I was watching three swallows from my cabin deck, it seemed that two males might have been interested in the same female and there was a lot of diving and going round in circles, sometimes coming so close to me that I could hear their...

    boo hoo, so I have to be content watching the birds outside. I've had many parakeets and cockatiels in my time and I've always wanted a parrot of some type to teach things to. Guess I'll keep dreaming on this one!

    I love any kind of bird.

    I absolutely love feeding ducks and geese. I want a pet bird one day. I don't know what, but I want one or 3. :p I remember when my dad would drop off a recording of the church service at the manor and I would go in just to see the birds. :) They make me happy. (:

    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.

    On Wednesday I was walking with my Mam in a

    valley where there is a reservoir. In the spillway there was a cormorant. The water was flowing so fast I don't know how it was hanging on but what surprised me even more is I thought cormorants are sea birds but this was fresh water.
