Yesterday morning was filled with wildlife moments. Early on I was pestered by a Squirrel who seemed to want to come indoors to use the laptop. He was knocking on the big studio window right by my left hand side; I should have taken his photo.
Then later this baby female Blackbird appeared. I was leaning over by our outdoor tap, and she flew onto my back. She stayed there for quite a while until I simply had to stand up.
Later I fed her with some Brioche soaked in milk.
I think she's adopted me as her Dad. Later in the day, she joined us for supper.
I think I may have started something!
No pie jokes within earshot of the blackbird.ReplyDelete
We'd need another 23.Delete
I love juvenile birds! How sweet!ReplyDelete
I wonder what happened to his Mum and Dad?Delete
Freddie will be licking his lips.ReplyDelete
I've given him a good talking to!Delete
Little creatures, how wonderful it is when they come close by and stay awhile.ReplyDelete
She seems so friendly. She's still here; I fed her some croissant this morning.Delete
And do you talk to her?ReplyDelete
Of course; koochie Woochie, etc.Delete
Sweet. She's found a foster home. Hope she staysReplyDelete
I rather hope she goes, the sooner she finds her own way in life, the better.Delete
Freddie, Bok and Lottie. (I named her).ReplyDelete
Lottie I like. Lottie it is.Delete
I have a bird here who comes whenever i feed the cats and eats from their food.ReplyDelete
It's very reassuring when animals have such faith in us humans.Delete
The hands in the photo's look to be those of a teenager ?ReplyDelete
Very good images and camera work.
The top 2 pictures are my hands, the lower ones belong to my 11 year old grandson.Delete
Possibly Lottie was attracted to the rather nice bottle of red on the table.ReplyDelete
No wine, just spaghetti; which she loved.Delete
So sweet. I love their singing. I wish it stays.ReplyDelete
Greetings Maria x
She's just come indoors for her lunch. She follows me everywhere.Delete
Sweet post and beautiful pictures. This is very Disney like.ReplyDelete
Well, she certainly keeps us amused.Delete
I love this story! I have a bit of a thing for birds and I feed the masses. I was thrilled when a King Parrot (a large green and orange bird here in Australia) trusted me enough to feed from my hand and would hang upside down from the roof, watching me when I was on the porch. He comes back regularly and brings his family, too. I feel privileged.ReplyDelete
On the other hand, it annoys me when birds don't trust me, but I suppose they have to be wary.Delete
I wonder if she was hand raised by someone who thought she was old enough to fend for herself.ReplyDelete
I think she had parental problems. Last night when I went to bed, she was in the bedroom.Delete
Well, I could poke fun at you-man with pet bird and all- but recently a friend gave me her old rooster. She had to move off her farm. The other roosters picked on him, I gave him some special attention and now the dang thing waits for me by the back door every day!!ReplyDelete
Yesterday the bird had a run-in with our cat, so maybe she'll be a little more wary now, although (as I said above) I found her in my bedroom last night.Delete
