Feathers On Friday: Peri Shelters In Place

We’ve had four pelicans vacationing in the trees at the side of our lake for the winter. This week, we noticed that Peri was on his own. I think his three relatives had managed to get a flight back up north before the COVID-19 travel restrictions came into force. He must have decided to stay and enjoy the warmth of Florida for a while longer.

Now he pretty much has the lake with its abundant fish, all to himself.

and landings.

For the moment, life is good and social distancing is no problem for him, as there isn’t much wildlife or even human activity around here at the moment. I feel as though we’re all holding our collective breath in unison, waiting for the next gripping episode.

Wishing you all a safe and peaceful weekend.

Feathers On Friday: Nothing Goes To Waste

Danny and Daisy stopped by for a quick snack. They’ve obviously heard of our ‘Birdie Bistro’ and are happy that the smaller birds are such messy eaters, frequently knocking seeds out of the feeder onto the grass.

After eating their fill, they were soon off on their Friday meander around the neighbourhood.
