Front Porch Surprise: Mom Has A Chicadee Pair!!

4.22.2012

 

Before I went out for my nephew's birthday Saturday,

I took photos as Mom napped...

I took bokeh, waterdrops on leaves and petals

And saw a chicadee fly up over me...

 

I talked in 'CHICADEE TALK'

And he responded in kind....

As he communed with his beloved inside...

I was in bird-heaven for awhile!!!

 

I missed my Rupert...and got to discover

For Mom a wondrous delight

The birdhouse moved from a tree felled

Now contained more gracious birds!!

 

THEN CAME A DRIVING RAIN...

THEN A RECORD SNOW FALL...

My hopes and prayers are that they will recall

This "home" set out in love by my Mom!!!

and darkness underneath their shelter above)
