Feathers On Friday: Keeping Up With Mom.

This tiny duckling trudging along behind his mom is probably also thinking, “Mom, are we nearly there yet.”

Wishing you all a happy and relaxing weekend.

Alli-Baba is back on patrol.

We haven’t seen this guy for months, but yesterday, Alli-Baba made an appearance in our backyard. Silently, he glided past our house on his way home.  Boy, do we feel so much safer now, knowing he’s out patrolling our area?!

Almost back at his watery lair, where maybe his lady wife was making supper. “Honey, I’m home!”

Wishing you all a great week.

 

Mrs Beakley has seven new babies.

The Beakleys have been very busy of late. No more time for a leisurely tête-à-tête by the waterside.

Today, Mama Beakley arrived in our backyard with her seven adorable, fluffy ducklings. She had heard that there was plenty of birdseed in the grass underneath our bird feeder, and proudly watched as her babies enthusiastically gobbled it up.

After a while she decided it was time to leave,  so after quickly doing a head count,

she lined them up and off they sailed in single file across to the other side of the pond.

Hope you’re all having a splendid week. It’s a another beautiful sunny day here in Florida.

 

What was everybody looking at?

Ah yes…….nicely spotted. Mr. ‘Gator was quite well camouflaged, but nature pbhotographers have very sharp eyes.

I wonder how he feels about the constant photo shoot that he’s subjected to, every time he sticks his nose out of the water.  He’s quite a celebrity.

Happy weekend to you all.

Iggy celebrates St. Paddy’s Day

Iggy dressed in his best green suit, appeared to be doing an Irish jig in the palm tree outside my bathroom window. Just look at those long toes! I’m really pleased that my window is tightly closed.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you who celebrate.

 

Feathers On Friday: Vertical Take-off

Whenever I see birds in flight, it always make me wish that I could fly too. What fun it would be, and imagine how I’d surprise my friends if I could do this trick. I’d just be sitting there quietly, listening whilst they chatted to me,

and then suddenly, ‘Zowie’!! I’d take off into the blue, leaving them open-mouthed with astonishment.

Happy weekend to you all.
