Bird watch...

Have no idea why I did this but...then again I just find it amusing I guess...So I was home the other day and while making brekkie I noticed a lil maggie (magpie) sitting in our backyard on the clothes line. I can see it coz our kitchen looks out onto our backyard area and the main road beyond that. Several hours later I head back to the kitchen the maggie is still there... so I found it interesting and wondered what it could be doing or waiting for???

Lil' mag just sitting there under the heat of the sun~~~Kinda looks like a fluffy penguin in a way... then what happens....


The family shows up hahahaah... and the lil mag was being fed by either its mum or dad regurgitating into him/her ewwww~~~~~ And this feeding frenzy went on for hours I suppose but I was only looking out on the action for probably 15mins hahhaahaha ain't no serious bird watcher (just curious).


In the short amount of time I was pondering over what the heck this bird was doing on my clothes line for so long... I managed to capture several sides to its behaviour (here's what I think was going on in its head ahahahahahahah maybe?). The parents would come back regurgitate and then fly off to get some more food and fed lil' mag. It's quite fascinating now I think of it.. our lives are too busy to notice such things as nature and animals around us daily. And then to appreciate them for their part in the environment is just rare. Sometimes it's great to just sit there and observe in peace while taking in all the surroundings around you. Makes you think about weird thoughts like ... what if I was a bird?...  would life be any easier?... wonder how it's like to fly?...is their family behaviours any different from mine?...hehehehe...

No doubt, we keep ourselves occupied at all times becoz it's the way of life but that doesn't mean we have to miss out on alone time to notice certain beautiful thinigs which constantly remind us that amusing things can occur anytime or anywhere. If you just take the time to reflect on other things beyond your work/school/social life an internal realisation that certain things just don't matter as much, you'll actually feel content and happy in that moment :)

On the subject of birds~~~ we have heaps of birds in Melb and most of my friends hates pigeons for some reason (saying that they are dirty...). In my area I also have cockatoos, parrots, ducks, geese, magpies, black crows and heaps of other native birds I'm not too sure about...I guess I do live in the woods somehow hahhhahaa... here's a pic of seagulls feeding in front of our State Library in the city....(heaps of them...)
 
Ok this was just something I wanted to share before I headed off to bed... will do the makeup for acne skin a lil later when I get time but I have to admit I've got heaps on my plate these days...So sorry guys but I'll do my best!!!


Signing off with pics I just took on my laptop webcam...I just got home from the city... met up with a friend I haven't seen in ages, we caught up over dinner and chatted about all sorts of things going on between us (regular chick stuff). Fully enjoyed myself but I'm damn tired~~~ as you can tell (yawning)... but wanted to be playful (FAILED). Stay well all of you and I'll see what other random posts I can come up with in the future hahhahaha stay tuned....

Luv from Me
