the birds



I'm hoping it's not Hitchcockian, but...

birds seem to be attracted to Offsprings #1&2.






When Offspring #1 lived in the dorm, a pair of robins built a nest in her window. She watched the entire process from nest building to the baby birds finally flying off. Here is one of many pictures she took:



Now an owl seems to have found Offspring #2. He took this awesome picture from the kitchen window of his apartment.



Perhaps I should ask Tippi Hedren when one should start to worry.

I think owls are so cool. It seems their gaze penetrates right into whatever they are looking at.

On the other hand, you could give a lookout for Mary Poppins or an acceptance letter from Hogwarts!

I thought of Mary Poppins too.

Have you ever read the novella The Birds? It's quite different from the movie but very good. It was written by Daphne Du Maurier, of Rebecca fame.

Great pics! Love it when our furry and fethered friends adopt us!

I have a similar owl picture of owl that made its home in tree outside my office window for a couple of years.

Those are superb pictures. Interesting to learn of the prevalence of birds around your children. . . .
