Just Life…What Else Could It Be⁉️

December 1, 2019

So, I was sitting outside enjoying the breeze for a bit this morning. As I sat there I could hear my Blue Jays, Red Bellied Woodpeckers, the little grey guy, and several of the wood grain looking lil’ birds snakily telling me to go inside…lol

I’m not sure which pair had babies, but I could hear them begging…no pressure Mom & Dad…heehee I moved onto the porch so I was for the most part gone. It was okay if I talked to my husband. My voice was apparently tolerable, my husband’s not so much.

Once i got settled inside there was a flurry of activity. However, I only managed to get a shot of a male little wood grain looking birds. I swear they can eat their weight in sunflower seeds.

At one of my feeders. A male Cardinal and a male and a female of 2 birds, although there are several of this kind that eat here.

I have 2 Cardinal pairs that come to eat at this red feeder, this Male is the bigger & brighter of the two. These cute little birds I have 6 or 7 that come and go from both  this and the below feeder. I have not been able to figure out what they are.

The same male & female on the red feeder and another’s back end on my clear feeder.

There were 2 other’s in the clear feeder with their buddy, but I wasn’t fast enough to get a pic including the Cardinal and 5 little ones..lol. Better luck next time.

The little one’s are vey nimble and acrobatic flyers. They also seem to be able to eat their weight in sunflower seeds every day..haha.

So, no matter what I have tried I cannot make this a post for this page. Which also made me notice that the above info seemed to be replaced with what used to be written. All this leads me to think posts only go on my main page. I s’pose I will use a horizontal line to separate entries on this never ending page.(don’t forget I’ma kinda blog newbie).

 

Pic.1-3— One of several pair of Blue Jays that visit my feeders. First, this one has learned how to use the clear feeder and scores some nuts.

Once they have scored their favorite they either land on one of the supports of the awning where I have hung 2 of my feeders. Other times they fly to a branch on a nearby tree. Once there they peck down on their prize to break it into littler pieces, they either come back or feeds their young.

I have had my feeders out many years, and ha 2 big bird baths and 1 small. So, now when their young are able to fly some of the birds bring their young(actually juveniles I guess) by to feed them as they learn to get food and eat on their own. Sometimes even a bird bath, especially on hot days or just a drink.

I don’t usually see them until the young are brave enough to be pushy for free parent food. They will usually still use their begging noise….lol

Reminds me of when our babies learn to walk and becomes a but sometimes pushy cutie pies.

Pic 4 & 5– One of my 2 pair of red bellied wood peckers shopping for a favorite. In the last pic it looks like it decided on a white round thing. However, their very favorite when they can get it is some kind of orange square of dried fruit.

MY FUR & FEATHER BABIES

No matter how much vacuuming and dusting takes place, unbelievably hair, fur, and feathers can still be found.  It is amazing how even if I vacuum every other day how much hair from peeps, fur from pups, and feathers from the bird are somehow still here an there.  There is one thing I know, no matter what I love my peeps, pups, and birdie.  Love is messy and sometimes painful, and that’s just the way life goes.

Skeeter is a black and white Toy Rat Terrier who weighs in at an amazing 10-12 pounds.  We got him when he was 8 weeks old and he will be 9 doggie years old in September.

Next up is Tank.  He is a brindle color that I love and he is shepherd mix.  We got Tank when he was 8 weeks old from the SPCA.  He will be turning 7 in January and he’s approx. 85-90 pounds.

Although both of my pups are my fierce protectors whether from a bug I squeal at or an unknown person.  Tank however sounds like a snarling vicious beast when he is protecting the homeland.  Even from the other side of our fence people take a few steps back when he gives his warnings.

Although Skeet is a smart quick little dude I think Tank is probably the smartest dog I’ve ever owned.  As I watch him in new situations I can almost see the wheels turning in his doggie head. I spoil them, but they read how I’m feeling better than anyone in my house.

Bob

Now Bob.  Bob is a cutie green and yellow little butterball parakeet.  Even though he is one little birdie it is amazing how he can sound like 10 birds chattering at the same time.  I gave Bob to my husband for his birthday a few years ago.  Even though he’s hubby’s  bird. Bob and I are more buddy buddy.

Why must things be so complicated.  I just wanted to do a simple addition on this page.  Will it just let me put my cursor where I want it and add the addition and be done? Noooooo!

I have to delete one old pic type the new stuff add the new pic then fiddle around to getting my deleted pic back where I had it. Sounds so simple, doesn’t it?  Yeaaaaa…uh..huh.

Tank Sept.2014

I took this pic a few days ago of Tank, just thought he looked so..King of the Hill-ish…lol. I was actually smart this time, I know amazing right?  In the past whenever I pointed a camera on him to take a pic(even if he was asleep) he moved before I could snap the pic.

This time(smack myself upside the head for not thinking of this sooner) I hit the little camera pic/button Thingy to use the camera to take a shot behind me instead of the normal in front of me. Brilliant!! I know…and he was none the wiser. Imagine all of the cool pics I could’ve gotten in the past if my brain was engaged…lol. Better late than never right?
