Give Us The Bird...Day Five...Bobwhites and Big Birds

Hey To All My Blogville Furiends!
Wow, the finale is here already!  This is the last day of Give Us The Bird.  I hope you've had fun.  I sure have.  Don't forget the big drawing will be on Sunday the 27th.  Everyone who posted some sort of bird during this week, and commented so I knew it happened...will be included in the drawing.  The winner has his/her choice of a collar from Clara's Collars or a $20 valued foodable package.  Pawesome huh?!?


So, here' s my last big birdie post.  I saved this one because it's so much fun.  Several years ago when my peeps first moved to my house, the territory belonged to a covey of Bobwhites.  They were amazingly friendly and learned that my peeps are fun and good for lots of treats...seeds you know.  So here are the pix.   Excuse the lack of quality, this was all before the magical, fancy flashy beast.
They were living under the raft leaned against the house!
Here they come out to see my peeps.

Sitting on Mom's knee.

Dad gives a pet.

Taking a dust bath.

Isn't that pawesome?!?   Wild Bobwhites right here visiting with my peeps!  Up close and personal.  They stayed around all during the Winter of '04-05.  Most left in the Spring, then some came back that Winter.  The following Spring they all wandered away leaving my peeps sorrowful and wishing they'd come back.   Great memories.

And here come the BIG BIRDS!
This pawesome hawk was rescued and Mom saw it at an
Earth Day event.

This amazing owl was rescued too!

One morning on a camping trip, my peeps rolled out of their tent to find me laying on the creekbank watching these Canada Geese honking their way downstream.  BOL

This noble birdie was strutting around my driveway!
It's a Ruffed Grouse, the State birdie of Pennsylvania.

That's a nice way to end the series I think.  Thanks again for playing along with me this week and tune in tomorrow for a special Snicker Saturday...Funny Birdie Edition!

Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Hi Sarge, whew I'm all birded out...... great last post! I like that your peeps can show their soft side (not the bashing) ;-)

We loved all your birdie stories, especially of the family of birds you fed, and who flew away then came back to visit. How nice that they trusted you enough to sit on your knee and feed from you hand. Lovely post:)

Hey Sarge, love the music!!! That's pretty amazing that those little birds were so tame. I bet your peeps missed them when they left.

My bird post is up today. We tried to get a picture of the blue bird in our yard, but he was just too quick so we posted a rooster of the indoor variety.

Your pal, pip

I posted birds on Wordless Wednesday and another one today.

Wow, those bobwhite birdies were sure friendly and tame!!! I'm sad too that they didn't come back.

I hope that they'll surprise you one year and show up unexpectedly!

Wow that is awesome. We are finally going to show you the "BIRD" today. Stop by later on for our post. Mom has been so busy she says. We are like right, lady. We have enjoyed seeing all the birds, she has looked outside for pictures and failed to even think we had birds in the house. Sniffs, The HoundDogs
