I think my poor blog has gone by the wayside. I didn’t post for a month due to having to be out of town and dealing with family issues and, now that I wanted to post again, I can’t seem to post any images without a big black box. Maybe I’m not meant to blog anymore…I can’t figure it out, I’ve written to WordPress to see if they can help but, if not, I guess this is the end of Glenrosa Journeys. Thank you for reading.
Update: It’s a Safari bug! If I use Firefox, it works.
My outdoor birds are not cooperating with their acting duties so they are on hiatus, maybe through the summer as it’s just too hot now to sit out there hoping they will toss me a morsel when I toss them a peanut so this is Anthropomorphizing Birds to date:
These were the last two in the series:
I think they are busy nesting and other seasonal things. And a few more from the hot yard:
Baby birds are starting to appear. A Curve-billed Thrasher feeds a juvenile. Others are looking for mates:
Bathing European Starlings
I think my sweet little Orange-crowned Warbler has departed for her summer home. I hope she returns yet again next fall. Safe travels, Tink.
What is spring without bunnies romping around with eggs and making everyone wonder what that connection is…including this Curve-billed Thrasher…
It also seemed to puzzle our cat, Ferguson…
Ebony didn’t even want to get involved with it all…
And who is this? Baby Bouche just showed up a few months ago and is now a neutered, ear-tipped member of the family. More to come…we’ve had an influx of cats that apparently were dumped or whatever, poor little things…but everyone is being fed…
Strangely, amidst birds, cats, bunnies, and eggs, I haven’t seen many butterflies at all this year and I have photographic proof from past years that they were here in abundance by now…worrisome…but the hummingbirds are out in full-force, very busy, not stopping to pose for many photos.
We have several cats and they’re all really cute but Ferguson is the most cooperative for picture-taking. He does look a bit annoyed but he handled the boa better than any of the others would have.
So…everything is pretty blah in my life right now. I won’t go into details–how boring–but I’m sure we all have issues right now. We made a seed wreath to attract the Rosy-faced Lovebirds to the yard. They were very gung-ho the first few days but now they don’t seem to come around as much.
We did go to Reach 11, a recreational trail, in Phoenix, a few weeks ago. Not many birds that day…but this poor old Saguaro keeps standing. A lot of birds use it for nesting in the spring so hope it holds up.
And a couple months ago I was at a park along the Rio Salado and saw these 2 duck friends…a Domestic and a colorful Muscovy.
And that pretty much concludes this post. Hope life picks up for us all soon. Stay safe!
