BIRDS

Yeah. I had a feeling this wouldn’t be very impressive… and it isn’t. 😏🤷🏻‍♂️

It’s just too fast, even at one frame every 1/3 second, 30 frames per second… and there’s nothing to really show scale, so the birds look way smaller than the beasts that they are. 🤔 It’s a little better full-screen.

Spring Birds

I noticed yesterday evening that my “spring birds” are starting to return to the big pine tree again. I’d say that it’s been five years in a row now that they’ve chosen that tree as the place where they spend their nights. 😊 They haven’t reached their full numbers yet, but I think that I still might try to do a time-lapse of them all landing tonight. Not sure if it’ll be that good, but it will at least serve as a test in case I wanna do another / better one once the tree fills up. It makes a person wonder how and why they chose this tree, and how they know or remember to return to it in the spring. 🤔

Had a really hard time falling to sleep last night. It was after 2am, and my anxiety levels were at their lowest point for the day… so I kinda hated to “give that up” by going to sleep. 😕 Days are more anxious than usual, for obvious reasons, so once you’ve reached those early morning hours it just feels nice that you “made it” through the day, everything feels like it has calmed down, and the chance for any unexpected BS popping up feels a whole lot less.

Meh… that’s all I’ve really got at the moment… 🤷🏻‍♂️🙂 So, no rambling… unusual, eh?

Peaceful

I purposely kept myself away from everything digital for most of today… which helped me to have a second successful day of feeling alright. Not much action to speak of throughout the day, but towards the evening all of the “buzzards” came home to my big trees to sleep for the night. It was just the right kind of peacefulness that I needed. Almost don’t know what to do with myself, having two days in a row feeling so drama and stress free. Not holding my breath for it to continue, but it’s sure nice while it’s happening…

Empty Nest

I noticed that I wasn’t hearing any peeping coming from the nest outside of my kitchen window, so I looked out just in time to see four or five little birds slowly hopping and flopping their way away from the house and out towards the back bushes.

They look surprisingly like real birds, despite being half-sized… although it’s a little hard to tell from the video through my dirty kitchen window. And I’m not sure if birds like that ever intend to return to their original nest at night or whatever, but these guys have the flight navigation of a drunken bee – so the chance of them getting back up under the awning is slim. I’m glad I caught them leaving. 🙂
