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.

 

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

So this happened. TURKEY TROUBLE!

Things were going so well and then suddenly they weren’t in TurkeyLand,

Every morning the turkeys come marching through the woods and cross our property headed North. Most of the time it’s a peaceful, many times entertaining event.

This morning for some reason things were tense and hopefully one of you turkey experts out there can tell me what was going on. 

The second half of this video makes me think of when giraffes fight with each other, wrapping their necks around each other. If you can help me solve the mystery, please do.

The clarity of this video is terrible, my apologies. I haven’t replaced my tripod yet and holding a heavy camera and long lens is definitely not ideal.

There once was a bird garbed in red,

from the tip of his tail to his head.

I should mention the fact, that his facial feathers were black,

And I’ve decided I’m calling him Fred.
