Our gator adventure has been keeping me from using my bench, but we still have lots of birds to watch. Just from a safer distance. In Birdwatching At Home – Maybe I, I explained why I haven’t used my bench too much yet. The talk of the neighborhood, “our own gator,” brings visitors to the water. As I mentioned before, we don’t get to see it most of the time because of the embankment…..
Recently, we laid a few blocks down in the backyard so that I [we] could use our old bench. My goal was to be able to watch some of the numerous birds that stop or fly by. Needless to say, the bench needs a little TLC [tender love and care] This was taken May 14th.
I grabbed my camera and took a few photos, thinking I’d start a new series called: Backyard Birdwatching. Real original, right?……
FAITHFUL ARE THE WOUNDS
OF A FRIEND
“Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” (Proverbs 27:6 NKJV)
Sometimes our friends accidentally step on us, but we do not have to get upset.
This video was taken at Gatorland on a cold morning. They were trying to share body heat. Every time they settled down, one decided to move and then the whole pile rearranged themselves again. Not birds, but thought you might enjoy this.
These two videos are of the Great Egret and Great Blue Heron using –
Gatorland’s Taxi Service.
To say they are somewhat nuts is mild. It is amazing how some mixed critters seem to get along, though.
We always enjoy our trips over to Orlando to see the activity. Sometimes weird and other times fine. The first video shows the Egret trying to let the gator to start moving. :)
“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.” (Isaiah 11:6-7 KJV)
These birds and alligators have learned to get along already. This is just a small taste of what it will be like when sin is removed from the world.
