I've never minded
Sharing with sweet birds
As long as they
Leave some for me.....
And not peck the hand
That saved them!

Rescued California Acorn Woodpecker
Look Here

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sweet - I love pretty birds too! It's the only wildlife, besides a few deer to the north by Germany, that we have here in Holland.

I love birds whether they share or not. At Busch Gardens one year, we had questions so we stayed after the bird show was over and the bird trainers brought out a bunch of birds and let us hold them. It was amazing. Owls, parrots, hawks... the bald eagle was the only one we didn't get to hold, but just looking at it up close was such a treat. The best part was that no one got pecked.

They'll share by perhaps nesting nearby later as they feel safe to do so, Kathe! They have a way of knowing!

I feed the little birds outside of my apartment with feed and they love it. I like to watch them they're so cute. That is one handsome bird in that picture. Have a good Thanksgiving.
