I retired my old bird bath this year.
Although the birds didn't mind the bowl I put on top of
kitty's head to hold in the water
I thought is was looking a bit tacky....
A new bird bath was in order.
Nothing but the best for my birds. :)
Everybody seems to be enjoying it.
Although I don't enjoy the grackles as much
as they seem to enjoy my yard.
They are loud and obnoxious,
albeit very pretty.
And everyone seems to be sharing nicely.
The birds give me great pleasure.
Watching and listening to them.
All different shapes and colors.
The differences in how they choose to eat their food.
Families of them living in my back yard.
Letting me get close to them
and them stopping to pose for me.
But none have been as enjoyable as
the little nuthatch who is eating out of my hand every night.
He knows that he gets his choice of the best seeds
undisturbed by any of the other birds
since he is the only one brave enough to eat out of my hand.
He keeping an eye on me.
Me keeping an eye (and camera lens) on him.
A new bird bath is a small price to pay
for this kind of enjoyment.
Wishing you a Happy Friday full of
whatever brings you joy!
