Watch the birdie







So many birds -- so little time....

The best kind of reality TV.

Boz ignores them. He even ignores squirrels. Then again, he can't ignore a cat.

An egret? It's such a fine balance. I love my birds, and I love a couple of visiting cats. I feed the cats and try to keep them fat and happy.

Dive: Yes, Bird TV is the best kind of reality show. Lately, we've also had quail stroll through the back yard.

Petrea: Boz must have a lot of self control to ignore squirrels! As for cats, perhaps he thinks they're "uppity"?

Karin: Actually our cat is an indoor-only cat. And she seems perfectly content to lounge atop her cat tree and watch out the windows. So the birds are safe from her. The 2nd photo is a blue heron. He was standing by a little stream, fish hunting.

I don't know what created Boz's interests and disinterests in other animals. He's mad about other dogs, especially little ones. Cats intrigue him--I think he wonders if it's some kind of dog he doesn't understand.

Ms M said...

Yes, I can see how Boz might think a cat is like a small dog. But one that doesn't bark and makes odd, undoglike sounds. Not to mention sharp claws.

What a great photo of the blue heron! Just amazing these birds on the roof. Are they wild ducks?
Your cat looks contemplative...

Hi Sonia, And thank you. The ducks on the roof are wild ducks. A creek is nearby and they like to hang out there. My cat is probably thinking that her food bowl is empty, and wondering why her people haven't remedied this?
