Yea! A Chickadee happening

Right after Easter dinner I looked out and saw
this little chickadee checking out my nesting box.

Of course I grabbed the camera and started taking
pictures... forgetting I had a houseful of guests. haha

My children already call me crazy 'bird lady' so they
didn't get too excited.

I put up this box last year and had no takers.... The House
wren put sticks in it and then moved on...

Then I noticed something peculiar

I think he was taking out nesting material
not putting it in!

I was nonetheless thrilled that he might choose
this box for his nest.

After the Carolina Wren disappointment I needed a
new bird to watch....why not a cute little Chickadee?

I hope you stay little fella...bring your wife!!

I'll keep you posted..

Total Devotion ....

I visited a local pond yesterday and I was
treated to two Mallards interacting.
The area is very pretty and well landscaped.

Mr. & Mrs. Mallard came flying in and she
literally ran and jumped into the water....
It looked she was shyly saying
"Are you watching me hon?"

I'm getting cleaned up just for you.

So refreshing and cool... dripping wet
It was a display of water droplets and sheer pleasure
She splashed and thrashed and the water flew

Then she stepped out onto the rock
(see him watching)

He never took his eyes off her for a second

She seemed like a dancer... wings out
Up on the tippy toes

Is he still watching?

give that pretty tail a big shake...

Another up on those toes.....

He waits
She's ready now...
And away they go!

Being Easter Today I would be remiss if I didn't mention
God's total Devotion to us. He gave his only son that
we could have salvation full and free. John 3:16
Have a Blessed Easter all you blogger friends!
