The Echo Of The Birds In My Home

Updated on June 30, 2011

A Bird Sanctuary

All I can think about is birds

Every time I type the birds are squawking louder and louder

I must admit the first thought that came to mind was

Shut those birds up!!

Then after I came to my senses I realized how much I enjoy their beautiful sound

I don't have to put a c.d. on to listen to the great sound

It comes naturally from nature at 5 A.M. automatically

Like an alarm clock set to wake me up

To say get out of bed what do you want to do sleep the day away

A reminder that life is always present and you can not stop it no matter what you do

I have to appreciate the music they bring

A harmony that is all their own

Now they have calmed down and are almost silent

I am wong again as they act up and their sound becomes a soft roar

I am listening to hundreds of birds that mimick each other

They should form a band and call themselves the Sqawkers

I know I would never pay to go to see them when they play for me for free

But for those who live in the city and the sound of birds is a rare treat

They will be traveling across the country soon

When they get the right agent to give them the best offer

They are holding out for wild seed three times a day

A place to stay would be nice but not manditory since they don't like to be indoors much

A tour bus would take a load off their feet and make traveling in the winter so much easier

Lots of pictures,key chains and t shirts sales a must

Autographs are impossible but if you buy the c.d. you can get a feather or two as a keepsake

Come one come all to hear the Squawkers

Perform and do what they do best

Keeping you awake when you want to sleep

Cheering you up when you down

Critics write

Overall good hearted, wild spirited

So much fun

Bring the little ones and leave with a smile

You will always remember birds of a feather flock together

      Nellieanna I have chipmunks coming in and out of their little holes all over the yard.Then there are so many acorns scattered all over like a slot machine that has released it's jackpot. I love that we have so many little trees growing all over my yard for free.I just let them grow then I cut them down when they too big.It is amazing how they take route with just nature taking over.I love wild flower seed so I have a variety of different flowers that keep revealing their beauty whenever given the opportunity.With a small garden in the back we grow with our neighbors a few tomato and pepper plants,snap peas and string beans.It is so nice to eat vegetables from the garden.Thanks and have a sunshiny day.

      Well, I do enjoy my home. It's nothing spectacular, as I see from traveling to more affluent areas on various errands. But it says "home" to me and I treasure that above all else.

      There's NO problem providing acorns for the many squirrels. My next door neighbor has two GIGANTIC oak trees, which shed acorns, leaves and dead branches in my front yard, which boasts only a magnolia tree & another evergreen, nutless one. haha. He can afford a lot of yard care and the workers are fond of blowing the fallen leaves & nut in his yard over onto mine, to join with those which fall there anyway. I'm sure the neighbor isn't aware of this injustice, but there it is, nuts crunching underfoot and "planting" themselves (with the aid of the squirrels) in my grass and little flower patch. haha. Oh well.

      The early morning birds delight me too. There are mourning doves with their calm, soothing sounds, as well as the twitter of others. I don't usually have squawkers unless there are blue-jays lurking around the neighborhood. There used to be ONE blue-jay who seemed to like us and returned again and again to our patio. We named him BJ and looked forward to his piercing gazes. The mourning doves always take me back to my youth in Del Rio when their sound meant "summer" and "school is out!". :-)

      This morning one of my 'pet' squirrels was in the grass in the front yard foraging for some buried acorns, I guess. He was so close and when I said "rascal" he just paused, looked up and when he saw it was 'only' me - he went back to foraging! haha. I think they've gotten used to my yelling at them when they get into the walls and attic in cold weather that they know my voice & that I'm obviously helpless against their tresspassing! haha.

      Very good statements of your impressions and thoughts. It is good to listen to birds songs, especially in the early morning, but there's no need to think only about birds :)
