It's a bird party....

Every time I see a bunch of birds gathered somewhere...I think of one of Lorelei's little friends.  'M' and her mom were out and saw a whole bunch of birds, and something was said about them, and her mom asked her wonder what they were doing or some question like that.  'M' said, 'Oh, its a bird party.'  Now I never see a gathering of birds without I think of her.  (I used to always think of Norman Rockwell's Gossips, but now that is second to 'bird party.)
These shots were hurry up shots while I waited for a light to turn green.
Almost any time we pass this particular corner, there is a gathering of birds there.  I so would love to know why they gather like that.

Edited to add:  have you noticed how they are all facing the same way?

Roger got labwork done today...had to get it done before he could have his scan with dye on Monday.

This evening he washed our Rav4's windows, which he has done before.  He followed that with cooking a pork roast on the grill and it was simply delicious.....it is the first real cooking he has done.  He has not lost the touch.

So happy that Roger was able to clean the windows and do some cooking tonight.

When I used to work each day, there were certain spots where I would see the birds gathered like this. It always makes me smile!

Yes, I have often wondered why they all gather on wires. Maybe they are just much longer then any tree branches, to accommodate so many. Lorelei has a fun outlook!

...interesting, I just saw a long lineup of birds on a wire today!

out of the mouth of babes, huh! Cute. I often wonder why birds gather like that. But really, HOW do they balance on that wire? They even do it in the wind. I always thought it would be cool to be a bird until the Hawk started visiting my feeders.

Glad Roger is doing things he has always done again.
xx, Carol

A murmuration of starlings..... but we always said they were having a town hall meeting!

Good to hear Roger is getting back to work!

Sandra said...

yum on the roast and wildly clapping that he has not lost his touch. I did not notice they are all facing the same way and now next time I see a bird party will pay more attention

I've wondered the same thing about the birds! Good to hear that Roger is cooking again and doing some chores as he is able to.

Love the idea of a bird party. Little kids are so observant and tell it like it is. Good for them

I like the idea of a bird party :-) I'll probably remember that whenever I see a flock now. We have a forsythia bush next to the house and the cardinals and sparrows like to sit in it in the winter and chitter away to each other. I always called it the "gossip bush" so your comment made me smile.

A "bird party" made me smile. I'll try to think of that instead of "take over." ;) Glad to hear Roger's still cooking!
