My World Tuesday

Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy and Louise for hosting My World. You can visit this wonderful meme by clicking on their icon below.


I thought I would combine my love of bird life for this week's entry as it is indeed very much a part of 'my world'. You will often find me peering through my curtains with my camera at the ready when birds are at the feeders. Lately I have been giving them speech, and as I have this particular 'problem', the two subjects seemed to go hand in hand. I always have to be fast as these pretty birds don't stay around for long.





The idea for this post was borrowed from that lovely line,

"I don't have a short attention span, oh look a kitty!"

"A fellow with the inventiveness of Albert Einstein but with the attention span of Daffy Duck."

Comparing Einstein with the attention of Daffy Duck, may mean that a short attention span is not necessarily related to low intelligence, as we are generally inclined to do - haha
Good shots of the birdie!

Anne, thank you and you are so kind. I get just as much enjoyment out of your posts.

Very cute, Denise!

I have to know what bird that is as it's another one I will not find on my bird table. They are just like your cartoon strip, easily distracted. Really cute.

Great job of catching the female Cardinal! They flit in and out of our feeders soooo quickly.

Clever! And very amusing.

Glad you spent time watching the bird! We recently set up bird feed in our balcony, and it's therapeutic watching them!
