Sitting outside with the birds

Friday, June 09, 2017

Every evening the birds sit on the wire and poles, and watch the sun go down. I grabbed my camera, and sat in my chair with them around 7:30 pm, and admired the beauty. There was our Sunflowers, with our neighbors flowers and trees in the background.

I took pics of the Doves

The N/W of the sky had clouds. Only area there were clouds.

Dennis and I have been watching birds for a long time, and we observed their behavior when it came to watching the sun come up, and the sun go down. I often wonder why it is that birds, who people think are not very smart, enjoy life's treasures, and so many people don't notice nature's beauty at all. 3 years ago we had a House Finch that would sit on our line, and watch the sunrise, and sunset. He would sing a beautiful song letting everyone know how beautiful the sky is.

I challenge you all to admire the beauty that God has given us. Slow down, put down the cell phone for 20 mins., and admire what is around you.

I walked back to our house, and was standing on our porch, and gave one last look at the sky. Along came a female House Sparrow who follows us around every now and then. She even hopped around real close to Dennis one day as he was watering the plants. I heard a "tweet tweet", and there she was. Watching me, then watching the sky.

Then she flew over and landed on the pole Dennis uses for cleaning the pool.

Small pleasures, that puts a smile on my face!
