Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Rosa Marie has been busy again with her camera.
"I was just thinking that after such a busy week, I needed to get some nature related well-being but it just started pouring! However there is always something to see on our back yard.
Not only did our resident wonky legged Blackbird bring along his offspring to feed juicy worms from our lawn, but a pair of California quails paid us a visit too and enjoyed a good peck around our lawns. Old Wonky legged had a beautiful juicy worm to feed his young but it kept falling out of it's mouth...
Never a dull moment! Awesome to be able to capture all this!"

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

It is not Friday but here here is a bonus Friday Feathered Friend from Rosa Marie.
"Just something to make the bird loving followers smile a little....
One of our resident blackbirds has decided that he would prefer bathing in our cat's outdoor water bowl rather than in our very posh and elegant bird birth! His sparrow mate had to make do with washing in the puddle created by the blackbird's vigorous ablutions!"

Has anyone had success at recycling synthetic pillows - I'm replacing a couple but don't want the old ones going to the tip. Any ideas??
