What goes on?

0143 Adorable bluebird 2wm

How’s everybody doing? I have run out of chocolate, but thank God I still have a box of Lucky Charms cereal tucked away.

This cute male bluebird enjoyed one of our rare days of sun this past week and told me through the window into the woods, to ration the bird seed. How did they know we were going to be tightening our belts and avoiding close contact with people?

When I think about it, I have noticed birds lined up at the windows watching my laptop screen when I read COVID-19 updates. Is there even MORE to birds than we knew? 

Now I’m wondering if they ARE able to read, what else can they do?

Gardening?

Paint with their feet?

Square dance?

Direct traffic?

The mind boggles.

 

Snowflake Junco.

This Junco didn’t seem to mind having a snowflake resting under it’s eye. I love these little birds and I only get to see them in the fall and winter.

Guess what these little birds are nicknamed? Snowbirds!
Huge numbers of these birds migrate south to the United States in the winter from Canada and Alaska.
A lot of you know that the folks that flock to Florida in the winter are also called snowbirds!  

When the birds disappear, I know who’s here.

The Coopers Hawk was back yesterday which explained why all of the birds had disappeared, the crows AND the blue jays were making a racket scolding this raptor. Please forgive some of the blur, I get too excited and just snap away and the winged beauty was just about out of reach.2nd angry blue jay and hawk DSC_9272

The shadow on my shoulder and is this what they call writer’s block?

This is a tufted titmouse, one of my favorite birds. They have the sweetest song and seem less aggressive toward each other than some other winged wonders. I like this image, but I LOVE the cropped version of it…every little feather shows.DSC_7472 In the shadow 2 wm

Unfortunately, the right side of it’s face has a shadow sitting on it, but I can’t resist those cute little eyelashes and the feathers on it’s head!

I’m supposed to be working on my book, and I am, but I have attention issues.

I should be typing on my mac, but I’m writing on a legal pad with a pencil.

This chair’s not comfy enough, I should be sitting at a desk.

I should have a snack, why don’t I have a snack?

Well now I’m writing on my mac, but I’m sharing on my blog.

I’m wearing glasses, but I should be wearing my other pair of glasses.

Where did the birds go? They were here a minute ago.

You see the problem.

 

 

Why do all the birds look so nervous?

Maybe I’m reading too much into the looks on my feathered friends faces, but this bird looks a little startled. The cardinal from the previous post looked taken by surprise and I’m beginning to wonder if they don’t approve of my hairstyle…or lack thereof.

I’m going to start keeping a journal of their facial expressions and act accordingly if I find high levels of anxiety exhibited. By acting accordingly I mean, I may have to start wearing a bag over my head. I can’t bear the thought of scaring one of them to death.
