“Hey! What are YOU Looking At?”

28Grosbeak+StareLove is in the air. And on the grass and perched on the bird feeder. Every hour, it seems, there’s another a display of bird lust to see. It’s almost pornographic!

Love is in the air
Everywhere I look around
Love is in the air
Every sight and every sound

Monday we watched a Black-headed Grosbeak (probably that guy) performing a Love Dance for his girlfriend all along the edge of our seed trough. It was spectacular.

Tuesday, I heard this commotion outside my kitchen window and there were two Barn Swallows – at least I think they were swallows, I mostly saw color and furiously flapping wings – rolling around in the grass and there were SIX ROBINS in a circle around them, jumping up and down, flapping their wings and making a huge racket with their squawks and chirps. Freaky!

  1. So THAT’S where baby birds come from. I’m always embarrassed when I happen to watch what should be a private moment between two creatures. Guess I’m a prude.

  2. I’m catching up on posts after several days of not being in the blog world–too many things to say, but I need to tell you that the green/blue banner is exquisite! and the Advent banner you have posted on the right? LOVE it! I’m still piles of clutter away from being able to set up my machine, but every day you inspire me, and one of these days that will have the cumulative impact of clearing the decks one way or the other to make it possible to sew! Just wanted to tell you that…

  3. So it was like the robins were cheering them on? Voyeurism in bird land…who knew?!

  4. Too cute — what fun to watch! (And I love seeing your Kaleidoscope seas at the top of the blog!)

  5. How neat to see this. I’d have to giggle. Actually, I did. Calendar neat. Imagine the quotes at the bottom of this…
