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

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Cute! I hope my Thanksgiving birds leave some for me too. :-)

  6. Yes , must teach them some manners !

  7. Am not sure many birds know to share

  8. Fine response to the prompt...

  9. not Peck the hand that saved them...love it!

  10. 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.

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


  12. 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.

  13. How sweet you are to rescue birds! Added a depth to your take on the prompt!


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers!
