The bird population changes frequently here, as a lot of them migrate north in summer or go farther south upon their return. I was watering the plants in the courtyard when a huge mob of birds flew in and settled on the wires. I felt like I was in the Hitchcock movie. 🙂
I zoomed in to focus on two birds and realized they were European Starlings. They’re an import, and have bred aggressively, but they are gorgeous. The spotted feathers show up in winter. I wish I could have gotten closer, but they were quite a distance away, and I was lucky to get as clear a photo as I did.
On Facebook, I mentioned R and I enjoying a fire by the lake. The first pic is him lighting it. The second shows the fire burning merrily and strong enough to shoot out the chimney. 🙂 We stayed for a couple hours, enjoying the night.
To wrap things up this week, here’s a pic of Suki stretched out on the bedroom rug on her back. 🙂
Have a great weekend!
