Thankful Thursday

AYLA:  Today I am thankful for Birdie TV.  I watch from the windersill a lot! 

The Goldfinches are  nearly fuly-color.
I love watching them fly around.  TBT was surprised to catch 2 of them flying at the same time.  I like looking at the picture to unnerstand better how they fly.  I would love to do that.
There are 2 thistleseed feeders and they flit between then back and forth, up and down.  The movement is SO exciting!  That they keep changing perches baffles me.  Its all the same seeds.  
I dont see all the same colors as TBT.  Well, he SAYS there are more, but sometimes he makes weerd jokes.  But I see these as bright spots.  Unike our black foodbowls he calls "red".  
Like this black birdie. Well, if he loves them, fine..
They are really crowding around the feeders lately.  Why do black seeds make them turn bright?  
But as long as they move around, I LOVE it.
Rest assured, they are all for watching.  We are mousie-hunters here .  Not that if one deds itself on the deck door we dont want to get out and examine it.  The "thump" on the glass gets us all to come look (even TBT).  And we do catch a couple of sparrows each year, but just if they are REALLY REALLY stoopid and stare at us from a low shrub branch.

I mean, we get birdy-food every day.  Not worth chasing.  But MOUSIES, we don't get those as often as we would like...  And TBT says we have too many in the yard and they eat flowers and his garden.  So we get rewarded for catching THEM!


  1. Yep - it's always good for you to hunt down some mousies.

  2. I love watching birdie TV too...they are right outside my big picture window where my perch is...and is great to bask in a sun puddle and be entertained at the same time.

    Our goldfinches are almost all brightly colored again, too...only the little ladies are still their drab least I can tell the difference now, but isn't that some kind of inequality?? MOL!

    Lately we have been seeing the rufous sided towhee. Have not seen too many blue birds yet, though they are around. Nor the Indigo Buntings. Soon the Baltimore orioles will be back too...but we here wish the baseball ones would be able to show up again too:)

    Mousies?? I have to stay inside, so only the pups get to snag those sometimes...or moles and voles which are easier for them to get. I hope they leave the garden snakes alone...they eat the same little rodent pests...

  3. You get some really awesome Bird TV!

  4. You do get good Bird TV.
    Flynn wasn't very interested in catching birds, but Eric was a fiend for them.
    It is strange how Flynn preferred mice and the Eric birds.

  5. WOW, your Bird-TV channel is amazing!!!

  6. Those are amazing photos, pawsome birdTV!

  7. Happy Thankful Thursday, Ayla!! You have a great spot to watch your Birdie TV. We are having heavy winds today so our Birdie TV channel is not in service until fly by later on this evening. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. Have a great day.

  8. Your bird TV is spectacular! You are a lucky kitty.

  9. You have a lot of birdies. You are lucky. We took our feeders down when the bear swiped the suet a month ago.

  10. Wow, you have some great Bird TV!

  11. Pawsome bird TV!
    We get some birds, but those darn squirrels tend to take over!
    We wish we could chase them but mum says NO.

  12. Mum says when she starts to see the goldyfinches turn bright yellow again then spring is really coming.


We're always glad to hear from our friends...
