Terri has us watching and feeding the birds this week for the Sunday Stills. I watch the birds from my front porch as they flitter around in our bushes. The Mockingbirds love our holly trees for making nests. I have an APP on my phone for recording data on the birds and I can record the birdsong too ……..is that a big surprise to you? Ha ha! I mean really ……..there is an App for everything these days! As hard as I have tried, I don’t have any bird photos from my own yard. I guess I enjoy watching them and they are too fast for me!
When I was looking through my photos, I did find birds that I have photographed on my travels…..the most photographed bird is the seagull! I love them and I love the sound of them! Here are the seagulls in Conwy, Wales…….up on the rooftop chimneys!
And up close………
and up closer……..
This was a very charming fellow that allowed me to get very close for this photo in Dingle, Ireland……. Maybe I am a seagull whisperer!
I loved this guy in St Ives, where we heard the seagulls all day and all night! When do they sleep?
This is a different variety of gull I saw in Kristiansand, Norway. He let me get up close too! I really must have magic powers!
We also saw these huge stork nests in France……there is a park for them in Hunawihr, France, but this couple wanted to find their own lodgings! How about that nest? Why doesn’t it teeter off?
In a living history museum in Conwy, Wales we also noted this final reckoning for the birds too!
I liked these peacocks found in the Potting Shed Garden in Benenten, UK! The elderly couple, who own and maintain this garden, would bring out the tall ladders and trim away!
And, here is a very unusual bird! The straw bird on a thatched cottage in Ebrington UK!
The Featured Photo is the baby, white owl that was nesting with it’s mama in the roof of the barn at our stay in Tenterden, UK! Isn’t she SOMETHING!
I hope you have enjoyed my interpretation of the Theme today! Won’t you join us for Sunday Stills? For more info look HERE! See you next week! Cady
