    1. This was a young sparrow that was not entirely fearful of me. It was also very curious, so I got quite close to it before it finally flew up.

    1. Yes, everyone certainly does have something to offer. If only we all have enough confidence in ourselves.

  3. Pretty little bird ~ don't you wonder what they think of us. I see birds doing that one eyed look at me... love it... especially seagulls and pelicans. Well? I've even had a dolphin lay on its side and stare... I'm fascinating

    1. I always wonder what they (and all animals) think of us. They seem to be checking us out. I also wonder what conclusion they come to after sizing us up.

    1. And exactly the reason why my cats never go outside. It would break my heart if they brought home a bird they'd caught/killed.

  6. Wow, what a beautiful picture!! The bird is so pretty, and I love all the colours too -- like a frosty winter day! He looks like he's thinking a lot of important things.

    1. You have such a wonderful imagination! I think he's most definitely thinking about a lot of important things.
