Birds Life



Bird's have daily life like we do.
They don't plan out their day of activity.
Nor do I.

Chico, California
May 2011




The Western Scrub Jay likes to swim.
We share that interest.



Then there are those moments we need time to think.
At the same time we can't really sit still.
(I added a filter to this third photo for dramatic effects)
Am I really dramatic too?

Life as a bird
Or as a person
We all do things that are typically the same in our daily life.

Pretty blue! That's funny, I despised planned out days; that's why work days aren't the greatest, you know there's no other possibilites for that day.
Thank you for your kind words on my Mother's day post.

Those are wonderfully sharp photos! Very nice.
I enjoy watching birds and think about their lives too. It seems it is all about eating, with the occasional look about for something that might eat them. Oh, and there is that problem of impressing a female of your kind in such a way that she might take an interest in your advances. And there is the issue of feeding the outcome of your all too brief love affair. Yes, a bird's life must be rough.

Texwisgirl, Henrietta and Lisa,
For me this is just a common blue bird that sometimes tormets other birds. But they are pretty. I have seen birds some of you have posted that I have never seen in real life. It is fun sharing our photos.

Sinbad, you are pretty witty. Ha.

Janie, these are all so beautiful. I really enjoyed the one of him in the bird bath.

Gerry said...

Wow! I really like that one. Cool colors.

Birds, though, have to be more focused in how they live their day than I can ever manage. Otherwise they wouldn't survive. Impressed by the top photo.

You do great justice to the scrub jay! They are a pain but I have grown to appreciate them more since we have had so many crows lately.
