Made My Day!
Monday, July 27, 2009
I had to drive my Daughter to work on Friday. I took my dog Sarge with me since he was giving me "that look". We drive through Bouquet Canyon, one of my favorite areas. On the way back, I pulled off the road, so Sarge and I could take a walk. He borrowed a tree, as I was looking around and enjoying the beauty. This area is in the forest. I kept hearing a bird chirping, and I was trying to locate the bird. I then spotted two Wild Canaries. A female and male. The male was beautiful. He had a red chest, and the female was yellowish. We rarely see the red breasted canaires. So this was a real treat.
Later, the same day, I was swimming in our pool. I kept hearing two birds squawking about. There they were, dive bombing this big bird at the top of the tree. I realized the big bird was a Falcon. 2nd time we have had this bird in our yard. They usually stay in the open part of the desert, not far from us. So this is thrilling he/she is hanging around. For me anyway. I don't think the others birds are thrilled.
The Good Lord just keeps making my day!!
