Bird Week


Every morning I like to take tea in my beautiful Shannon Garson porcelain cup and sit on the back deck letting the warm morning sun ease me into the day.
While doing this, I often get to see lots of bird events in the bushy back yard. They are always upset or excited about something- cats, possums, other birds. The Mickeys in particular like to be in a constant state of moral outrage. One memorable bird event was the Bird Wars of 2002. Diplomatic talks completely broke down between the Mickeys and the Blue Faced Honeyeaters. The blue faces are are pictured left holding the strategic TV aerial position along one of their containment lines. I've never heard such a din! The cats generously offered to supply first aid to any casualties.
If you did not know already, it is Bird Week and time to appreciate our feathered friends. That's according to Shannon Garson's Strange Fragments blog showing a different bird related creation every day of this week.
Happy bird week (and lay off the KFC why don't you!?)

Shannon, I've always thought that the painting on my tea cup was of a Bird of Paradise flower so it is a good one for Bird Week too!
