It’s been an odd year weather wise and that’s had impacts on flowers and insects. How’s that affected me? There’s this robin.. Well, there’s quite a few that treat my garden as their territorial dispute line.
I only have to appear at my back door in the morning and the word goes out around the birdy neighbourhood. Then they all appear with their ‘pity me’ eyes and I feel obliged to provide them with some sustenance before I get my own fist cuppa of the day and some breakfast.
It was only when I decided to take a picture of one very persistent Robin that I realised two things.
They stood on one leg. I almost convinced myself they only had one till I realised they did actually have two but one shot up pretty quick when they landed.
The other thing I realised was that this particular robin is feeding 3, very hungry, freshly fledged, youngsters. As I stood close, trying to get a picture, they went from one to another then a third to feed all in turn. The youngsters were all perched nearby where I hadn’t noticed them before. Unfortunately I was so busy being amazed by the family feeding fest in my garden I forgot to take the pics.. oops… one for another post – does taking pictures preclude you from seeing what’s in front of you or do you see it more?
Back to today’s topic.. No wonder this robin chases me as I awake and practices yoga as often as they can.
Do you know what goes on in your garden?
