Skywatch Friday: A Fast Talker from the Sky

This talkative feathered dude had a lot to say on SaturdayIMG 0188
when we were walking along this road at Topsmead.

He was still talking and taking to the air and talking and taking to the air on Tuesday. He found a girl and then he played hard to get--and seemed to lose the game. He'll learn!

  1. What a handsome dude. Sometimes, a gal wants the strong, silent type! Lovely perspective on the second shot!

  2. 'Hard to get' never worked on me either LOL. What a wonderful shot of that fellow! And I would love to walk down that lane, on such a day.

  9. I think one of his relatives must be hanging out in the tree outside my office building. Loud?? Nah... not much.

    But isn't it amazing how your big talker got tongue tied by a lady?

    If you ever figure out a way to keep that from happening, would you clue me in? 'Cause the same thing happens to me all.the.time!

  27. Birds do sometimes have a lot to say. Yesterday they started in my yard at 4:30 AM and I did not appreciate it. I still encourage them, though with food and nest boxes.

    I need to get to that road as soon as possible - it looks long enough for me to loose a pound or two walking on it. Thank you for that view!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Fantastic shot of the bird! I love him! And that road looks like such a gorgeous, peaceful place to walk!

    Have a great weekend, Sandy!

  43. Hi Sandy ~ Long time no see but my spring break is officially over and I am happy to be back in the blogosphere. I love your photgraphy and your words which give even more insight. The picture of the dirt road is perfect - my eye is drawn right to the center and I keep looking to see what lies ahead. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  44. What a perfect, clear photograph of the bird. Plus the road makes me itch to walk, run, ride, drive down it to see what is at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great photos, love the bird up in the tree. Do you know what that is? Your tree lined dirt road is also something to behold. He's very handsome.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Excellent pictures, Sandy! I so much like the first one with the bird.

  55. Many thanks for your information about Sky Watch, Sandy. I've gone to skyley in the afternoon and it's all right now! However, I'll try with pleasure Google Chrome (I must download it) which, as you say, must be really very good.
