My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..
I suppose these birdies call to one another, as they gather quickly to our feeder. "Free meal , all you can eat". The feeder is full. Do not be late." These sweet sounding sparrows wait each morning for the sun to rise so they can find their way back to our window feeder. We hear them chirping, and see displays of sometimes hostile behavior as they fight to see who gets to have the best spot to peck through the mesh for their favorite seeds. They fly away with a beak full only to return to find their spot has been taken. I love to see them flying in, and they seem to not mind sharing with the House Wrens and a few Chickadees and even a Junco or two. Their biggest problem I think are bigger birds like the Hawk or Scrub Jay. During the day the Jays take control of the feeder, only to knock the seed to the ground but, the other birds like the doves and quail get those dropped morsels. The Jays are big & beautiful inspite of their bully behavior pretty shades of blue & gray. I wonder where these sparrow sleep and if their nests are warm and protected from the Hawks that sometimes watch from a distant fence post. I can see him lurking and the sparrows can to as they quickly fly away all at once to hide in the tall grasses and low scruffy branches of the juniper trees. Whatever their purpose is I do not know, but they are welcome at our lunch counter without an invitation and I could watch them for hours..
