Feathers On Friday: A Congregation Of Ibises

Yesterday our local gang of ibises descended in our backyard. These gorgeous pure white birds vary their feeding ground and move around in great numbers. Obviously yesterday wasn’t a good day for any worms or grubs which were hitherto happily ensconced in our grass.

Those long beaks are merciless in their search for food, and the diners were oblivious to me as I took a couple of photos from my bathroom window.

I hope you’re having a happy Friday and that your weekend will be relaxing and carefree. My hip is totally healed and feels better than normal. Yay for good surgeons! Whatever would we do without them?

  1. Hi there. I am so happy to hear that all is well with your hip
    and you are right – they can be a gift to this world –

    also, like the ibis gathering you showed us – last summer, I grabbed a photo of a group of them in a huge puddle near the beach – not sure what they were lapping up but they are stunning to see in a crowd like that.

  2. That’s great news about the hip, but not so good about the toe ๐Ÿ˜ฏ let’s hope you can get it sorted soon. Aging is full of aches and pains and I think we have made a big mistake moving to the wettest area of the country!

    • Thanks, Jude. The toe pain is due to arthritis and no cartilage in big toe. If it’s not one thing, it’s something else. I remember my dad hobbling around for years, but he would never see a doctor. Hopefully I can get this sorted too, without too much down-time. Even here in Florida where its warm for most of the year, I feel those aches and pains when the temperature drops even a few degrees in winter. Winter in England must have much more of an effect on aging joints. xxx

  3. Very glad you are ”back on your feet” ..literally, and I’m sure you must feel so much better now that you can move around without pain. Yes, yah for good surgeons. My sister-in-law is still waiting to get her hip replacement done, the hospitals in Sydney are so busy, they have put off all ”elective surgery” for a month. It will be a long month for her.

  4. How wonderful to see your post pop up in my reader. You have been missed. I am beyond thrilled that you are completely recovered and the pain has been taken away. I agree – yea for doctors/nurses/healthcare. Your window is as magic as ever. The moral of the Ibises story could be either: 1)donโ€™t get too happily ensconced in a situation because things change or 2) donโ€™t forget to look up to see that things are changing. Sending many hugs!

  5. Great news about the hip! ๐Ÿค— (Not so much about the toe!) We need your photos of the latest visitors as seen from your bathroom window! So nice of you to invite the Ibises for a snack. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Hi lovely to see you Sylvia here again. So glad your hip is healed and you are back to better than normal. Take good care of it and yourself. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
