Video Clip: An aviary assembled in our backyard on this rainy day in February 2012.
I call this meeting to order!!!
Will the delegate from the maple tree please take your perch...
What a variety of delegates we have here today!
Birds of a feather, please perch together...
Will the circle of Robins please pipe down...we can't hear the goldfinches...
Robin dear, is that a cedar waxwing sitting there between us?
All in favor, please tweet aye!
What's black and white and red on top?
If Tom Nuttall could see me now....
This bath is for the birdies!
On these warm winter days, a drink hits the spot.
The fake bird is kinda lame, but the water looks great!
Come on, take the photo already.
All right, I'll pose, but make it quick :-)
People confuse me with my cousin, Blue, but my name is Scrub!
Who built this crazy contraption anyway?
Just look at all that birdseed. There must be a feed hole around here somewhere!
Splish, splash, I was takin' a bath...
Go find your own bathtub--this one's occupied!!
Yeah, my feathers are ruffled, but this is so delightful...
It's only one small step for a man, but it's one giant leap for a birdie.
I'll just puff myself up and blend in with these rocks.
If you get any closer, I'm outta here!
I don't understand why they call me a lesser goldfinch--when I puff up, I'm just as big as all my cousins
...They'll never find me here...
Yellow is the color of my true love's feathers....
"I think there's a green pig on the other side of that rock" "Shhh...just look for the eggs so we can get outta here!"
Oh what a beautiful morning.
I can't get the theme from the Pink Panther out of my head.
I need to scribble a thank-you note to the nice folks who put out this sugar water for me.
The pause that refreshes...
This sugar water is addictive :/(
I need to bookmark this bird feeder in my GPS log.
All quiet on the Eastern front....
Where are you guys? You were supposed to be here 10 minutes ago.
Today is All Sparrows Day...except for that weird bird on my right.
It's the real thing!
