Small birds in the neighborhood

love our patio feeders, and 

we love watching them.

Curve-billed Thrasher at Patio Bird Feeder   Leave a comment

Curve-billed Thrasher at Patio Bird Feeder — Image by kenne

As I sit on our patio
watching birds land
in near-by mesquites

before flying to the
olive tree on the patio,
then gathering the nerve

to bolt to the bird feeders.
They are not pleased
that I sit on the patio

with a camera in hand.
Soon, the desire to eat
takes priority over fear.

Greet each man with words of love
And peace,
And a dove will be placed
On an olive tree.

Dapper in looks and cheerful in song, the Pyrrhuloxia or desert cardinal is a tough-as-nails songbird

Drought Resistant

Tomorrow early, I will go to the canyon
and take photos of the fall colors,
but today I am staying home

trying to stay warm without a fire
in the fireplace watching the birds
gathering at the feeder.

Last night I could hear a few raindrops
landing on the skylight knowing that
it won’t last, and it didn’t — this is the desert.

I am amazed how long desert plants
can survive without water, but then
that’s why they are called drought resistant.

This hawk was attracted by the doves below the bird feeder on the patio.
With a temperature of 103 degrees, might as well take a water break.

Capturing the Moment — Cat In Mountain Cabin Window   1 comment

“Cat In Mountain Cabin Window” — Image by kenne

Cat In Mountain Cabin Window

Embraced by the morning sun
The cat sits in the window
Watching our every move as
We walk near the small cabin.

Appearing to be along,
She oversees the bird feeder
Mounted outside the window,
A sentry or a predator?
