HAPPY BIRD DAY

Curiously, today dawned overcast and has remained that way all morning so far though it appears as if it is beginning to clear up now.

Rains recently have flattened the Rocketman Sage in the back yard but once the skies stop falling it springs back up.


Apparently the fronds are full of pollen because the bees love it.

So, too, do a pair of neighborhood Goldfinches.



I know the birds are tiny but it still amazes me how they can perch on seemingly the smallest, most fragile stems without seeming to bend them at all.





Of course, once they have had their fill of pollen they stop off for a drink before going on their way.




There is a seemingly never-ending cycle of life taking place right outside my window.

I enjoy being the oddball observer.

  1. It's these small aspects of the life cycle that go almost unnoticed. Thanks for documenting them for us.

  3. As far as birds go, your property is a one stop filling station.

  4. Aw I love goldfinches. When I watch them fly I see the inspiration for Woodstock (Little birdie, why must you fly upside down...). :)
