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.
