Bird in the Sun
As you learned from the previous post, Bird was jealous
of the Peabody ducks that get to swim in the hotel fountain
and strut around on the roof in the duck palace.
Bird wanted her own palace.
She had to settle for a romp on the deck
soaking up the warm afternoon sun.
We have a nice, large deck on the back of the house
but we rarely use it since it's also very sunny.
It was relatively nice yesterday so Bird and I sat in the sun
listening to the wild birds flying to the feeders and back to the trees.
Bird couldn't see the wild birds,
but they could see her
and would fly over to the deck rails
and an take a peek at this bird
sitting with her human.
She began to preen,
since you never know when a handsome rooster
might fly by, right?
She was so comfortable that she would
nestle down and try to sleep.
I moved her over into partial shade.
She looks somwhat vulture like here!
She wasn't happy when it was time to go in
but it was enough sun time for the day.
