On my fence.

And the show goes on.

laying claim to seed
me too
come on … make way
as the seed dwindles, and more birds arrive, tempers flare
and a bit of jostling takes place
this spot is mine, I said
I make a movement, and they’re off, but not for long, one comes back
some won’t bother coming back, but the regulars will, even though they obviously suspect I’m still there behind the flimsy net curtain

Have a good day.  🙂


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. Word spreads. Sometimes I forget to look before I put out the seed. On that day there was a flock of over twenty, just past next door, foraging on the ground. Thanks for dropping by.


  1. The wing-spread bird in the picture labeled “this spot is mine, I said” has such great ‘attitude’ and the bird with its beak in the ‘attitude’ bird’s face is having none of it. It would make a great comic strip…I never tire of their antics…more, please.

    1. Oh yes, Kayti. There is one that likes pole position by the water dish, where the biggest pile of seed is. Things started to get nasty once more than 5 or 6 birds arrived, so now I spread the seed out, but they still jostle and fly back and forward over each other. It’s really entertaining.


Tell me what you're thinking.
