Weekly Photo Challenge: 2017 Favorites Birds

I love birds.  I used to have finches for years in a super huge cage.  I can’t believe I used to take care of them the way I did.  I learned how to trim their claws but left their beaks to the Cuttlebones they always had, no problems with trimming.

Later with children we had parakeets.  Some were so loving and easily trained, just like a member of the family and other times, they were skittish and wanted to bite you if you tried to sit them on your finger.  So much for cheap department store birds.  Always try for the finger tamed well taken care of birds from breeders, they are a lot more expensive but worth it.  Healthier as well.

Birds of Prey, Turkey Vultures to be exact, are very prevalent in my area.  Sometimes you see swarms of them, maybe 30 or more at a time sweeping the skies in formation and then they are gone for a while.

I purchased a small Christmas tree this year and placed a few small bulbs and black birds as decorations along with a string of battery operated micro LED lights.

Very cool picture appeared when I tried to take a picture of some snow out the window. The lighted trellis behind me reflected in the glass making it appear like a fairy land out in the snow!
