I have been hanging out at the bird feeders lately
Trying to get some good photos of birds in flight…
I love how their wings leave a soft sigh in the air, or swoosh as they takeoff
I have to be careful as this little fur ball loves to come with me…and that is never a good thing. The birds leave the area in a wind churning frenzy.
This little bird was way up high, listening to the silence of the sky
Last evening, as the sky started to purple and fade a female Great Horned Owl and her mate stopped by
They were delightful to listen too and then to watch leave…silently lifting up from the branches; floating away like a breath of wind
During the day the air is alive with the shimmering sounds of the Sand Hill Cranes
Their thrilling call is beautiful.
They spend the night on the farm also, but are so silent one doesn’t know they are here.
The Canada Geese do not seem to like to be where the cranes are. Rather sad, I tell them all the time they are welcome.
Still, they fly on their calls adding to the trills of the cranes on the ground.
What lovely creatures add to our long winter days!
