Starling

please click on photo to enlarge
A flock of Starlings flew in for seed this afternoon. This one especially caught my eye. He had three times the numbers of stars in his feathers, not to mention, his face being covered with them! I thought he was beautiful! He posed nicely, too! I loved how his feet still have snow stuck to them!

  5. Great shot indeed
    Did that one take 50 to get at your feed?..lol
    They sorta look like little white hearts on his feathers there too
    Or maybe I'm just seeing things out of the blue

  6. Pat ~

    It does look like hearts, that is true
    How observant of you!
    Do you have Starlings there in N.S.
    or just loons there at your nest?
    Only one picture I took
    Got lucky at my nook!

    Yes, but first is best
    at least in the comment jest.
    Saves time, too
    no 50 photos to look through.
    ha.
    Maybe he saw a cat or two
    and thought he'd better scram toodle loo.
    :)

  11. I'm entertaining myself by imagining all the stuff you MIGHT be doing in your project. Like replacing all your doors with beaded curtains........:)

  12. Rebecca ~ oooh, now...beads! Why didn't I think of that! LOL! I can just see the tangles after Spencer got ahold of them. Oh gosh. hahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh, didn't think about that--ok nix the beads. How about those doors that split in the middle what are they called?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I know. :)

    I would have loved to have had those when the boys were small!

    I always think of Mr. Ed. lol...

  15. Well, I think the British actually refer to them as "stable doors," but I'd have to look that up.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Elevator doors hee hee! Yes, french doors are what I meant. My brain is misfiring tonight. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh, french doors. Nice! We have doors like that on our master suite. Solid, though..no glass..obviously. ha.

    I'm liking the bead idea, though. That would certainly be unique.
