Garden Bird Watching

lap

Mudlark and Guttersnipe sat in the big armchair with Constance, watching the birds out in the garden…

Schizostylis Lily

…but the sunny afternoon was too tempting! They dashed outside to examine the Schizostylis Lily that has been attracting the hummingbirds…

.

.

Snowberries

…and the Snowberry thicket in the corner that the Towhees seem to like.

Close-up view

They sat very still next to the suet block, and saw the Towhee, some sparrows and house finches right up close.

oops

Guttersnipe startled the birds (and Mudlark!) by falling off the fence!

.

.

Up the cosmos

But while on the ground, she noticed the birds flying up to the Cosmos stalks, and riding slowly down to the ground as they pecked at the seed heads.

.

.

down

…so she climbed up and rode down with them all afternoon…

.

.

Ooops

…while Mudlark kept watching birds at the suet block.

Tails Twitching

The cats took over the big armchair for some feline birdwatching.

    • Birdwatching out the window is a favourite pastime of the Quimper Hittys, humans, and felines! The humans used to play a game like the birds and Guttersnipe in the Cosmos, only we used birch trees when we lived in the mountains (we were smaller and lighter then) It is fun to remember while we watch the birdies and dolls in riding the Cosmos!!

    • Mudlark is very good at sitting still, while Guttersnipe was eager to join in the birdie fun, and as for the cats…they preferred a warm indoor chair with a nice selection of birds flitting past the window!
