this morning's birds

downy woodpecker ,

a couple of house sparrows (yes, it seems that they, and not bluebirds, will live in the bluebird boxes)

,

a lovely collection of mourning doves--right now 14! on the ground and some starlings

no bluebird today.

(Just thumbnail pics this time--and I'm not crediting the source, but they're all on the first page of a google image search if you search on the name of the bird--only in the case of the bluebird, type "eastern bluebird")

And now some bluejays are moving in.

But why the crowds? I haven't put seeds out there for ages.

For something humorous, check out this article in the Onion, "Rotation Of Earth Plunges Entire North American Continent Into Darkness"--good for a chuckle. Thank you to my friend in Paris for that!

Okay, time to work.

I'm sad that I'm a hopi god...
(that was one of the funny comments about that picture--which I loved. Good old Strong Sad--what other animated elephant man would use "chiaroscuro" in a sentence?)

Mourning dove, mourning dove,
Please mourn no more!
You are one that I love,
You make a silent spirit soar.

mourning doves
I love them too--I love their eyes, their color, the way their tails fan out when they fly, and their overall shape.

Hi! I skipped over to your journal after I replied to your comment on my journal. Did that make sense? Anyway, I saw that one of your favorite books in "A Wrinkle in Time". OMG, OMG! This is THE book that caused me to fall in love with reading (that's one love-of-my-life that I still have). I love the bird pics. I have just gotten into birding. Can I add you to my friends list?

absolutely!
You bet! Let's friend each other. A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door had a really profound effect on me--they were fantasy stories in which good conquered evil not with the tools of Evil but with love--in A Wind in the Door, evil wasn't so much vanquished as transformed. I still get tears in my eyes when I think of it.

Re: absolutely!
I've read "A Wind in the Door" also. L'Engle is brilliant.
