A Simple State of Being

Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to attain. ~ Doug Coupland

I can sit for hours staring out the window watching the birds, I wonder what this one is staring at?

The tree with all my feeders get’s pretty crowded on the snowy days.

This one needs a napkin.

I was zoomed in with my camera watching this mourning dove fall asleep on the branch.

I just love their blue eyelids.

We both were surprised when this one flew in and landed right by his side!?

The jays were being fairly nice to the others ~ surprised me.

The titmouse are so skittish. They rarely sit in one spot for long? I’m determine to get a good shot of these beauties someday. Maybe that’s why I sit by the window for hours bird watching, I love a challenge.

Sometimes I feel like some of the birds are looking right back at my with something important to say.

    Loved looking at your birds. I don’t spend as much time observing the birds from my window. We haven’t had many yet this year. As the temps drop, more will be moving this way. If it has to be cold, at least we’ll have dark-eyed juncos to share it with. I look forward to their return each winter. TItmice are hard to photograph, they go very quickly about their business.

    Your little woodpecker reminds me of the ones in the tree back in the wash…except it seems so small…I wish I were watching out the window with you 🙂
