The Bird Whisperer

(Yesterday, Magpie and I went to the Tres Rios Nature Festival at Estrella Mountain Park. We attended a lecture by a wildlife photographer who took WAAAY too many  pictures of snakes and saw some cool varmints.)

"Don't pat my head. Don't pat my head. I SAID, 'Don't. Pat. My. Head.'"

"Nice beak."

"If I just had a bobby pin I could break outta this joint."

"Why, oh why, can't I?"

"Excuse me, but could you kindly get that one dimensional owl off my back?"

"WHO are you looking at?"

"Oh, boy! Live rabbits!"

Oh, REALLY? (Relax. It was only sleeping.)

  1. I’m so jealous! Love your captions on all these too. But, what, no beaded ostrich? Oh, that’s right, I got the last one because they’re now extinct! I’m surprised you didn’t stay in the car when you found out there might be pictures of snakes.

  9. Ohhh……I almost went to this event. Now I wish I did!!! I could’ve met you guys. This looked like a lot of fun but I had to go on my wildflower shoot. Saturday I just did absolutely NADA!!! I locked my doors and slept in until almost noon and did nada for the first time in months. Sunday, we went on a 4 hour hike up a peak and accomplished my mission. Laundry did NOT get done. Love your bird shots….especially the owls:)

    Every time I see that rabbit, my heart still skips a beat. It really did look dead. We had a good time, didn’t we?
