Eat Like A Bird

                       These visitors to my birdfeeder had MUCH to say.

"Have you no manners, lady?  Can't you see I'm eating here?"

"What the heck?  If you'd hold your horses for a minute!"

"Think it's funny?  You ever try eating with a beak and no lips?"

"Watch this guys.  I'll stare her down."

"Could you have the courtesy to cut this stuff into smaller pieces next time?  In case you haven't noticed, I ain't the Great American Eagle!"

"Aw fellows, give her a break.  She ain't so bad."

"Okay, shoot.  All my friends say this is my best side.  I have my father's strong jaw line."

"Of all days to leave the nest without makeup!"

"Oh, for Pete's sake.  I DO have a face, sweetie!"

"Good grief, she's made me lose my appetite."

"Now, see what you've done?  Are you happy now, Party Pooper?"

Oh dear, you talk bird too. Well I guess I should take pictures and stare at them while they eat then if this is what they say!!! I hate to hear what the zany squirrels say!

MADDIE: I haven't tried observing squirrels in this way. You're right about them being zany!!

SARIE: Thank you, Sarie. With the feeder right outside the window and the camera zoom, I can really get closeup shots. I'm glad you enjoyed my post.

Hey Cheryl, this is Awesome! You really got into the mind of the bird...LOVED it!!

Cheryl aka Shaddy said...

PAULA: So sweet of you to stop in and to comment! I love it!

It takes a birdbrain to know what a bird thinks; doesn't say much for me does it!!

Come again, please.

Great pictures and equally winning captions! Love them!

So, are you doing NaNo? I'm not this year - recovering from foot surgery and in la la land much of the day from pain meds. Maybe I'll change my mind next week though...

Gullible said...

Uh-huh. Just as I suspected. Too much Scrabble has you talking bird talk.

Cheryl aka Shaddy said...

NATASHA: I'm sorry you had to have surgery and about the pain meds. I did decide to do NaNo, believe it or not. I barely believe it myself! After a glass of wine on Saturday, I made the decision to go for it. I haven't been writing regularly and at least this will motivate me to spit out words every day for the next month.

GULLY: Too much of anything has its adverse effects!

You really gave us the bird this time.

WALK: It's scary to know that I can relate to birds!
