What we need around here is…
There are a few things that we could use around here, like an exorcist to remove the demon causing this poor robin’s head to spin around like Linda Blair’s did in the movie…
Whew, its head finally stopped spinning around, but the dummy better pick its beak up out of the water or it will drown!
That’s better, but I don’t think the exorcism is done yet by the look of its eye!
All better now?
It must be OK, its singing in the bathtub now.
So, what else could we use? An air traffic controller!
The one on the far left is trying to tell the other two that he’s going to turn, but they didn’t listen, and two of them collided directly over my head. That’s not hard to believe with all the birds there are flying around here.
As you can see, the airspace around here is really getting crowded, and that leads some birds to squabble over which one has the right of way!
Its getting so that even the hawks…
…have to keep an eye peeled….
…for low flying planes..
…and each other…
…and take evasive action…
OK, so I’m kidding about the low flying planes. The skies are crowded here though, and I love it! Birds in flight never cease to capture my attention. Almost every species of bird has its own style of flying, some are slow and deliberate, others are quick and darting, some soar, some flit, but no matter what the style is, it is a thing of beauty and wonder to me.
And what we desperately need around here is some one to break me of my bad habit of sneaking up on sleeping mallards and firing the flash from my camera in their face!
Really, please, somebody tell me how to stop myself from doing this to the poor mallards!
I ‘m sure that there are other things we need around here as well, and I’ll get around to those in the future. That’s it for now, thanks for stopping by!
