Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 24th January, 2019)
A Young Blackbird
Lovely pic, Philip...
But when was this taken?
“come and get me if you think yer hard enough”
How many more for a pie Phil.
Aww you're a bit early, let's hope mum can find food for you on these cold and frosty days.
Its a very early bird
'Here's looking at you kid"!
'Of all the plant pots in all the 'woyld' you had to land in mine'!
Love this pic, (and love the comment, Veronica!). xxxx
Fred, The Photo was taken soon after breakfast. Yes, it is a nice photo, but I'd been denied a better one by 'the opening of my back door' . . .
Garry. I'd spotted the chick through the kitchen window as it was being fed a worm by its parent on the garden fence. I then took my camera to the back door, opening it no more than a few inches, and then Whoosh! The parent had flown. I also followed the chick later for quite a while as it flitted on the ground and along two fences, the chick eventually presenting itself in - as Mr D nicely Teases - doughty mode. This photo shows my last sighting of the chick.
I must polish my kitchen window.
Ken. Let's stay with Party'. It's in the oven, now, and I'll give you a shout when its ready.
Yon lasses can certainly string a few meaningful words together, can't they. Nicely.
As you know Irene- another tear- jerker, doomed romance was 'Casablanca'. But oh! The clothes and hats.... Those Yanks certainly had the edge over their poor cousins in the 'forties'.....xxx
I just hope those horrible cats keep away from him or her. owners of cats should put bells on the collars to warn birds that moggies are about. Give me garden birds than cats anyday...Spring is getting near.
No problem, ladies.
Wall could do with a coat o' paint
Each year we have less and less of our beautiful garden birds, yes cats are a pest and do kill birds, they poo in my garden too and make a real mess. We need to encourage our birds with food and yes put bells on cats collars.Soon be Spring and our birds will start to sing.
As the weather is very "mixed-up" A lot of "early birds" will sadly die.
That's right, Lynne. And so many other factors cause their demise. I haven't had Blue Tits in my nesting box for about four years now, and a sparrow hawk in the back garden for each of the last two haven't helped matters. Thanks.
