some bird/buddies we are missing


The last few years that we have been building our casita up in Lama we have become very good friends with our bird buddies.  This season we haven’t been feeding them in the feeders because we don’t want them to depend on us for food when the snows get deep cause we won’t be here.  But I found these photos that I wanted to share

last winter we had them flocking around us by the droves and this little bitty girl (we’re guessing) would be so comfortable in len’s hand that she literally had her back to him while he petted her and she ate the seed in his hand.

these little guys are ‘titmouse’.  what a name. They are all grey and they make a fluttery sound when they fly.  they like to hang in groups.

chickadees are one of my very favorite birds.  I have some great stories about them and just love their little personalities and charm.  The way they flit around and always soo busy.  Their little bounce in flight.   And if you’ve never had one land on you, you are missing out on one of this earths greatest experiences ( in my opinion anyway).  they have the lightest little whisper of landing and if you’re lucky you can even feel the little claws on their feet.  It is such a blessing each and every time they trust you with their presence.  In the winter when it’s really cold you can feel the heat out of their feet and you know they hang out just a smidgen longer cause they can feel your warmth too.  What a gift of abundance and peace.

    Thanks for stopping by… Birds have been good friends for many years, and yes, often delight us by taking seed from hand when proffered. Love these pics and the many beautiful others I see on this site.

    Salaams,
