they love that fruit!

I love this little birdie....he must not weigh hardly anything, sitting on that long very thin leaf.....looking longingly at that piece of fruit..... The abundance of fruit is amazing! And this little Finch is in 'hogitty heaven' with so much to choose from....his eye kind of looks glazed over as if he ate too much of this ambrosia-like sugary food and he is kind of stoned from it all.....just zoned out, for the moment.....lol.....sweet, isn't he? And here below, is a series of shots of one bird supping on this delicious fruit..... He takes a moment to rest before getting back literally into the middle of this fruit..... Yum. Yum, yum, yum! And more Yum, Yum, Yum! And he is sitting on a dried flower that is about to fall to the ground at any second....again, he must weigh practically nothing....!
That little bit of white flower petal way over on the left is from another plant---a Pachypodum. That's the flower that smells so very much like a Plumeria blossom....and looks like it, too, but it most definitely is not a Plumeria...... And just on the end of this one's little beak you can see the evidence of a meal well eaten....these birds are so darn cute! And below.....another view of another bird taking in all that he can..... And in this next picture, he almost looks like he is bowing his head to God in extreme gratefulness....how dear is that? LOVE these birds and the fruit on this beautiful plant, too.....more about those flowers, next time round.......







More To Come........

Some of the half eaten fruits look like great jaws - almost as if it could swallow the little bird whole. But I think it is he who is doing the swallowing - with great delight.
Thank you for those Naomi.

Either you have a great zoom lens or those birds are very used to your presence, Naomi. I'm always envious of folks who can make those close shots. The Short People enjoyed them, too!

Here on the Eastern Shore we have lots of juniper and other fermented berries, and our birds actually DO get tipsy! They will become dizzy and sometimes fly into windows. So funny. Do you think they develop a habit and go back for more like a human would?

Oh, what a gracious little bird, and so adorable, too. I love to see birds enjoying their freedom like this, and not caged up. Reminds me of the quote: "The caged bird is pretty to look at, but it no longer sings." That's true of birds AND women, you know. ;)

Good Friday morning to you, Naomi ! How are you doing ?

The way nature has provided for all of its creatures is amazing !

Never again will I think birds just eat worms for sustenance !

Oh there goes that finch again. Do you think he's the same finch before. He must be happily feasting over that fruit so red.

Oh my dear,
how can I excuse? Not being commenting your, my fav blog site, for a while.

You know - a silver wedding arrangement is like a First Night Performance - Le Premiere - Opening Performance - Opening Night - Preparing for Wedding and honeymoon -
all in the most hectic season for Anna at school, me in business.

But I tell you, when in Argentina, you will be among my top 3 -after my kids - to comment and email. If I obtain and find an internet option.

Hugs from
Anna and Tor

ps. Have a wonderful time

Oh! These were wonderful shots of these little flighty friends. Thank you so much for sharing! I am indeed interested to know what kind of plant that was, because it is lovely and unusual... at least in the area i'm from.

Those last two shots look like the plant is going to eat the bird!

It's no wonder you get such an abundance of visitors when your garden puts on such a great banquet for them! They sure look like they are enjoying the spread. It's a wonder you watch televisdion with all this going on in your garden! LOL!

These little ones are just so lovely, I think I could sit in a chair and watch them all day. With a blanket, of course, it's getting a bit chilly out. :)
