Birds! Bewilderment! Being outside!
This is my blog! It's mostly about birds, but also about being outside: photographs I've taken while outside, accountings of places I've parted company with umbrellas, notes on interesting rubbish sightings, and so forth. If I don't post about being outside for a few days, please comment and harass me till I go outside.
It’s all good news, today!
First of all, minigull update:
Second of all, the broken crow is completely patched up, now, and looking wonderful. He only has the slightest of limps, to show he was ever at death’s door. A funny thing, though: on the side where he was injured, the feathers are coming in a bit on the bleached side. Some are white, others greyish. 50 Shades of Grey wasn’t a good book*, crow, and it’s not a good look, either. (Sorry!)
Finally, I might’ve scored myself a new starling. I saw one on the railing, early this morning, eyeing up the birdseed. It didn’t get a chance to eat, though — four pigeons showed up, right behind it, three of which proceeded to have a fight, while the fourth emptied the feeder. (That fourth pigeon had the right idea.)
Outdoor pictures will resume soon, I swear; I caught a cold, and then I got busy, catching up after the cold. (Excuses, excuses!) But I’m almost caught up, now. Stop disapproving, Internet!
* Or so I’m told. Of course, I haven’t read it.
