My Daily Entertainment!

All work (or studies) and no play makes for a very boring life! On the other hand, a walk in nature, listening to the sound of a babbling brook, or birdwatching are the types of activities that nourish the soul and rejuvenate the spirit. Fortunately I don’t have to go far for any of these pursuits. As to the last, it has been a joy to be able to look up from my desk (the dining room table) and peer out the window into our back yard to watch the birds and their fledglings flit about all day. I have paused from time to time to take a few shots of the back-yard flurries, and decided to share some of the photos with you. Hope you are enjoying your Sunday!

Ooops....this is no bird! But I had to go out and have a talk with her when she began nibbling on my Asters!

Nothing like a dip in the birdbath!

Birdbaths sometimes work as reflecting pools, too. :-)

    1. Thanks, Naomi. I try to stop in occassionally. I won’t be a regular contributor or visitor until Jan, 2014, but it’s nice to share a bit when I can. I appreciate you dropping by. 🙂

  1. Those little ones make it known when they want to eat. Great shot of the deer, looks like you had a face-to-face with her. We’ve had a couple escaped exotics visit our backyard. One was a rather large parrot!

    1. I’m glad I made you smile! After watching birds for a while, one begins to see “personality” (or is it “birdality”) in their antics. I’ve discovered that birdwatching is quite enjoyable and relaxing. 🙂

  2. Hi Cecelia,
    It’s good to hear from you again and view your delightful photos. The green parakeet must have been a real surprise to see – and to continue to see. But what really grabs my attention are the gold colored doves. They look like an Audubon painting. And the blue color on the deer – the way the photo turned out – is beautiful. You are really good with photography. And how are your studies coming?

    1. Barbara,
      It is always so good to hear from you. And I am so pleased that you like the photographs. They were all shot in my back yard! The studies are going well. I am in my fieldwork now so the end iw within sight! Expected graduation is December. I look forward to getting back to a “normal” life, whatever that may be. Thanks for stopping by. I am happy to see you, as always. 🙂

  3. Great to see the Sparrows feeding their young 🙂 Not sure how long the Budgie will survive unless there is a Budgie community nearby – predators can spot them a long way off. The Queens Budgies do fly wild around Windsor Castle but they are in a flock and go home every night – I feel for a lone Budgie 😦

    1. Hi Martin! I know, the Budgie’s days are definitely numbered. If predators don’t get it, by wintertime, the cold will definitely finish little Budgie off. 😦 But for now we are enjoying his presence in our yard and will continue to feed him as long as he’s around. Thanks for stopping by. It is good to see you! 🙂

    1. Thanks hoaiphai! It is nice to hear from you. Glad you like the photos. I have been immersed in studies and fieldwork, but hopefully 2014 will see me back in the groove and happily blogging away again. Until then, be blessed. I’ll “see ya” later. 🙂
