Bird Watching

When we had our own house, we had sliding glass doors that looked out on a deck where Not The Mama would feed the birdies.  My sister Daphne and I LOVED to watch the birdies there.  Apartment life, with no deck and no birdies - well, it ain't the same!
My favorite bird to watch was the Mourning Dove.  Here's a picture that NTM took of a Mourning Dove a couple springs ago:
Mourning Doves were bigger than most of the other birds (bigger is better, right?) and they spent lots of time on the deck, tantalizing me. Along with the doves, we would get chickadees and goldfinches and cardinals and red-winged blackbirds and juncos and downy woodpeckers and robins, too!   I miss my birdies.

  1. I miss the birdies too. My development is so new, the trees are very small - not much taller than I am - so the birdies don't hang out much here yet. Maybe in 10 years or so, when the trees are big enough to sustain birdies.

  2. My investor put a bird feeder out in the yard to attract the birds.... but they aren't showing up anymore! I wonder why...

    (P.S. She's still thinking about getting chickens. When your Not The Mama had chickens, did you eat eggs??)

  3. We see lots of those mourning doves, too! They go "hooooo-hoo-hooooooooo! Hooooo! Hooooooooooooooo!"

  4. Tell not the mama you want to see the menu.

  5. We's haf tha morning doves here in ours yard. We spend tha morning watching 'em, chittering an thumping our tails (loudly).
    An we's gotted those big mean Mockingbirds wif nests nearby. They will dive at ours window if we watches 'em too much.

  6. We love watching Mourning Doves!! There are many here in Brooklyn, and we stare at them sitting on our fire escape.

  8. Once upon a time I had cats and they would make this weird sound while watching them through the window.

  10. I bet that you do miss the birdies. It sounds like you Neall know your stuff about birds. We just know them by colors kind of.

  14. All I get are Mouring Doves and chickadees. Mini likes to watch both, but I haven't been buying bird seed lately so she only has deer to bark at.
