Life is for the Birds at the Ranch

This little birdie flew into the glass door on the deck...I found her on the ground and thought she was dead. When I picked her up by her legs, she moved! So I put her on a towel and put her in the flower box up high on the deck...she stayed there a long time and eventually flew off. All the birds in general have been very comfortable here at the ranch!

"Hey! It's the weird lady with the camera again!"
Sitting very still in the tree...
This little guy was pretty brazen.

"How do I look? Left profile or right?"
I tried to play "peek-a-boo" with Luigi by the poplar tree today. He was actually rather intrigued, and I thought that his eyes widened a bit whenever I bopped out from behind the tree. Luckily I don't really care what the neighbors driving by thought!
Paco's perturbed look...he's ready for more hay.

Now this is exciting: vegan donut holes! Messy to make, but yummy to eat!
Boulder looks like Valentine here.
Boulder finds the egg I left on the terrace!
Toby's happy to have some sun back.

Weegie takes a breather.
