Birds are Intelligent

I am lucky to have a bird feeder outside my house thanks to my dear hubby. It was my much awaited gift. BF1

I do try to remove some time and sit by the window to watch birds. I have seen many wild birds but mostly sparrows are my regular guests. The feeder is placed in such a beautiful way that I can type on my computer and yet just lift my head to the right and look at the feeder. All birds make a noise as they come to eat. Hence, It is a delight to have it.

The reason I feel birds are intelligent is that they can sense me watching them. Can you see the glare on the window in the first pic, I know humans can’t see from outside but birds seem to sense my presence and fly away when I move. It is so difficult to click pics. I have seen birds playing with each other and once I saw a sparrow touch beaks with another. It was spectacular but they fly away as I pick my camera. Even when I stay very very quiet, I feel birds make eye contact and sense me and fly away.

Maybe the smart people amongst you will tell me that their vision is better than us humans and …

It used to break my heart to know that the birds fly away because of me. Thankfully, slowly I feel they are starting to trust me. Yesterday, as I was waiting for my dear hubby to come home, I saw this bird who kept on eating. The bird didn’t mind me at all and it is the most delightful experience to have. I thought that it is always a delight to be accepted by babies and really small children but birds… This is a whole different kind of acceptance that I beginning to love.

  1. Birds.. especially crows are very intelligent indeed.. we feed the birds from our kitchen window,, every morning Mr crow makes an appearance.. If he doesn’t see any food.. he comes to my hall window and screams his lungs out! I am hungry where is my brakfast he seems to be saying especially to my dad.. So when papa gestures him to please come to your window,, he at once flies off and perches himself there waiting quietly and patiently for my dad.. once he’s had his fill.. he flies off!!!
