I can’t believe sometimes what birds will do. This one happened to land on the ledge of our lanai. I took several pictures but this one seems to be more interesting. It has that inquisitive look that makes me smile. I love watching birds. Sometimes I follow a plover and try to take pictures. I actually have a collection of pictures of birds. I love to just flip the pages of Audubon bird pictures and just have fun looking at all the different types of birds and their bright colors. I even try and paint a picture of stilts that I saw when we visited the Monterey Aquarium on a road trip to California about three years ago. I am also fortunate to see birds in the community garden all the time. I enjoy just listening to the sounds or songs they make which each is quite unique and lovely. I wake up every morning listening to the melodies which is like almost telling me to “Wake up, it’s a good day ahead”!
I also find bird’s nest sometimes and I collect them and give them to my grandchildren to show them in school and so they will learn what type of materials the birds collect to make their nests. They are so excited to bring them in school and show to their classmates. I get excited too because in a small way, I am making them aware of nature that we must appreciate and protect.
