Listening To The Birds



After Thomas takes his leave of us, usually via the living room window, he pauses a moment or two to plot his strategy. Here, he listens to the sparrows that fill the carrot wood tree next door. When the coast looks clear, the birds drift from the tree to our nearby bird bath, easy pickings for a patient cat hunkered down in a fragrant cloud of sweet alyssum.

There's a second birdbath around the back where the intrepid hunter has found a niche amongst the maidenhair ferns and calla lilies. The picture below shows him intent enough on birding to be undistracted by the camera.
