The flycatcher post

After we got home from work yesterday, while we relaxed with cocktails, I thought I'd try to get a pic of the busy parents that are feeding their babies. They usually fly from the nest, land on the chair a few moments before flying off to get more food. So I got the camera, and as soon as I returned, one flew to the chair and just sat there as if to say, "okay, hurry up and take my pic cause I'm very busy right now"!

They are cute little birds. Bigger than a Sparrow, but smaller than Robin. If you missed the earlier post, they're called Flycatchers. I see them on the light posts or a low branch sitting, and then they'll fly off into the air to grab something, and fly back to their perch. They are fun to watch.
Then Craig made tasty home made pizza's and we watched the Starship Trooper trilogy. I liked the 1st and 3rd one but not the 2nd one so much.
And now I'm off to clean the Salon. Not sure what else I'll do today. More storms are forecast so we'll see.

  2. I wonder if they are the same as "scissor-tail flycatchers"? I always remember that from the movie "A Trip to Bountiful".

  4. I've seen at least one of those birdies eating the suet I put out for the birdies.
