Birdies,Birdies, Everywhere

Among the myriad of living creatures, birds are quite fascinating.

There are so many hundreds of varieties in all colors and sizes. The sounds they make can be pleasantly melodic or blackboard scratching unpleasant. Crows can sound very annoying, especially if they are in fighting mode.

The turquoise glass mama bird in our house arrived alone. She was discovered on a table at a yard sale. Lo and behold, two baby turquoise birds showed up at an estate sale, for less than $1 each. They joined their long-lost mother.

Mourning doves truly do sound as if they are grieving. Their cries in the morning sound sad and melancholic.

Hummingbirds are among my favorites. They are so tiny and move their wings so fast they seem transparent. Seeing one always makes me wish I could hold it in the palm of my hand and feed it a tiny bottle of nectar.

When out on the tag sale or thrift store prowl, my attention is always drawn to birds.

This little fellow looks longingly out of the kitchen window, probably waiting for spring, like the rest of us.

Currently, cardinals with red feathered wings are being sought for tucking in between Christmas tree branches.

That's it for birds for today. Tweet tweet.
