Raindrops make everything better! (Feathered Friday)

It’s a love/hate relationship between the Stella Jay and I. They have a tendency of being a tad “over-enthusiastic” thus scaring away many of the little birds. This occasion however was the exception. It’s hard to resist tiny raindrops scattered like glitter over one’s head!

As we had so, so many birds visiting last month on their way to Alaska, Feathered Friday is currently dedicated to them and their safe travels!

Proudly wearing a ring of confidence (Feathered Friday)

For the previous two summers I’ve been referring to this bird as my Mourning Dove. However, looking up my handy-dandy bird book (yes, finally!) it says this is a Eurasian Collared Dove. To quote my teenage daughter… oooooo, fancy!

And I was like… REALLY!?

Is it just me or should some animals really come with their very own word bubbles above them. This Thrush may have been small but exuded more than enough sass for the both of us!

A lone autumn visitor! (Monochrome Monday)

Although the cold autumn winds have dispersed most of the birds that frequent the tree outside my kitchen window, this lone robin remained.

Through no fault of their own, robins have never been a favorite of mine. Sadly, when they’re on the ground they remind me of a Queensland toad. An ugly beast at the best of times!

Waiting in the Wind (WPC : Waiting)

It became quite the waiting game over the summer to see how many days this withering flower and leaf caught in a spider’s web would last out on our deck. It lasted long enough for me to forget!

Waiting is this week’s Daily Post’s Weekly Photo  Challenge.
