"IT'S A BIRD'S WORLD" VOLUME 8

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

The last thread, found here, http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1075157/ , is packed with smiles and laughter. Now, with this new one, we'll have more room for those cute, funny bird moments.

I'll start us off with this one. These were taken from a bird blind in North Carolina. The owner of the property feeds the birds all sorts of wonderful treats and they come very close to the blind and perch on all sorts of beautiful perches he has. So, they were almost captive, but not quite.

How fitting! Yup yup that the sweet Carolina Wrens alright, and how 'proper' the Cardinals could be. I love it Patti.

Pelle, LOL! :Good one. I'm just waiting for the next frame where the dove pushes the cardinal out of the way and starts looking in that "greener" spot. :O)

LOL Burd! Love them!!

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Burd, good ones! The second pix is of a turtle? My goodness, what's a catch! He who doesn't ever need a dentist! LOL.

Sandusky, OH

Yes a Blanding's Turtle Lily, he just happened to pop his head up for a yawn actually. I figured since we don't have a wildlife caption thread.... Id just throw it in here...couldn't help myself lol. To finish the caption in whole...if you caught a fish to small to keep for dinner you would have to toss it back in the water...the Turlte is suggesting I toss the small fish to him, and he is fully confident he would "catch it" in his mouth.lol

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Burd, that's a rare catch....not the fish but the pix of the Turtle, lol. I get to watch the pros. on tournaments (perhaps), they quickly toss those little fish back into the water without admiring them. Pooouyeee!!!

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

Burd, I love the little goslings! They are so cute. I didn't have a clue what the other critter was. Glad you and Lily cleared that up. What a great catch! There was a Black-crowned Night Heron that would hang out on the end of my Sister's dock in Galveston when we were fishing. He knew he'd get all the little ones and he never missed. It was fun watching him scarf down those fish.

I had some time to play today... Had to dig deep in the archives for these pics.

This Northern Mockingbird got every single strawberry before I even had a chance. Little devil thought I planted them just for him.

Why do people who hate wildlife build homes and golf courses on the edge of the water?

I thought I'd better revive this thread before it gets so far gone we never see it again.

Where are all the jokesters? Anybody got any funny stuff to post? I really need a laugh. Have to go back to work tomorrow after a 5 day weekend.

One from me...

This was actually the same bunny - two photos taken just seconds apart. I flipped one and, well, you know the rest.

Too Funny! Glad you found the thread. I was too lazy to search for it before I posted the Juvie House Finch story...oh well...shame on me! :/

Who are those drunken masked marauders ?


Did you know that Cedar Waxwings are susceptible to alcohol intoxication, and even death, from eating fermented fruit ?
