It's Coming!!!

Christmas Eve is nearly here. Here are some motivational quotes from Toy Story to keep you in good spirits and some facts about birds:

 

"You got a play-date with destiny!"

 

 

 

"To Infinity and beyond!"

 

 

"Reach for the sky!"

 

 

In the spirit of Christmas, please remember wildlife. Although humans can find just about everything they need at most grocery stores the birds who don't fly south for winter or choose to stay may need a little help from people who care. However, if you begin to feed the birds, you'll need to continue or they can starve. This morning I saw a Red Cardinal in flight in Flower Mound, Texas. Once you start feeding the birds, they will depend on you to rely on for their food source. Fresh water will be helpful too.

 

Other birds besides Cardinals who may stay home for Christmas and winter includes Juncos, Grackles, Nuthatch, Chickadees, Goldfinch, and Song Sparrows. Feeders don't have to be fancy. Birds are not choosy about where they find food. As long as you provide food in a place where they are not going to be preyed upon by other wildlife. If you can offer them a safe retreat, and you are lucky enough to watch them eat, they can bring you joy!    

 

Did you know that Partridges were imported to America by sportsmen in the late 1800s? The early colonists were often mistaken by native Bobwhite Quail and the Ruffed Grouse instead of Partridges. The two main Partridges include the gray Hungarian Partridge and the Chukar Partridge. In the "Twelve Days of Christmas," the first line was written, "The first day of Christmas my true love sent to me, a Partridge in a pear tree."

 

"Migratory birds connect people, ecosystems, and nations.

They are symbols of peace and of an interconnected planet."

---Antonio Gutteres

 

Photographs were taken at my local Grocery Store. Inspiration for this blog post comes from my soul.

Have a nice day --- Patricia Feager

Hi Patricia... my favorite day of the year... Christmas Eve. Learned a lot about birds from your post... I must admit I know little to nothing about them.

Hello Patricia - I like how your post took me on a different Christmas journey.   To the world of wildlife and birds specifically.  An interesting journey and a unique path - that's certainly true with a visit to your words.  Thank you.

Hi Patricia,

This is a great reminder for the care of wildlife during the winter.  My brother who is an avid bird watcher, recommends I not do a full yard clean-up in Fall so the birds have more sources of food and refuge. I found this article on the subject.

Brian England - You know... when I looked up and saw those charming figures at the grocery store, I thought of you immediately! Suddenly, I wasn't thinking so much of food but rather on flying, and traveling and meeting AR friends like you! And when I got home, I didn't make dinner. I sat down in front of my computer and looked at my photos. Suddenly! I was inspired! This is the result! 

Eggnog cheers to you, dear friend! Always remember, birds of a feather, stick together! Let's feed the birds!

Carol Williams - Thank you for the Audubon link! For years I was a member and then I let my subscription lapse. I better reinstate! I greatly appreciate that you provided the link. The information was excellent!!!

The more food sources and variety we give to birds the happier they will sing and succeed when it comes to survival. Thank you!!!

"You got a play-date with destiny!"  I like that statement, Patricia.  Life feels like that at times.

Cute pictures and wonderful, thoughtful suggestion about awareness that most take for granted. Mother Nature brings us so many beautiful things and birds are one intriguing species that we are called upon to nurture. 

The better we nurture, the more beautifully they'll sing for us!

Myrl Jeffcoat - Isn't that a wonderful quote?

"You got a play-date with destiny!" Let's not forget to add that to our 2020 Planning and Goals!!!

Debe Maxwell, CRS - During my morning meditation I started to notice the dead of winter outside my window and began thinking I needed to cut some branches, pick up piles of leaves, and possibly get rid of my Sage Bush. Suddenly, I heard a Blue Jay. The bird flew into the big tree outside my window. It was directly in front of me up in the tree, but clearly, I could see him and hear him squawking out loud. 

Believe it or not, I think the Blue Jay called the Bird squad because a pair of Cardinals (both male and female) swooped by my window then perched themselves on branches while the Blue Jay flew across the street. The female moved down into one of my garden beds and I could tell she was finding breakfast in those leaves I was thinking about get rid of today. The male hovered over her, as if protecting her and sat on a branch. I have no doubt, Mr. Red Cardinal was looking at me! They hung out quite a bit and when they left, a group of chickadees followed behind. It was quite a morning show and I think I'll leave my yard alone!

Happy Monday before Christmas Debe and Myrl!!!

George Souto - I think birds are really amazing. After all, they learned how to fly long before man! At the very least, we can feed them and provide clean water in gratitude for airplanes to visit long lost or current relatives and exciting new vacations!
