A Cheep Cheep Weekly Link Round-Up

It's that time of year. The air is filled with the sound of baby birds cheeping in frantic choruses to their parents to bring food NOW. I barely have time to set the fresh new oranges out before adult birds have flown in to get as much of the juicy flesh as they can to carry back to their greedy kids.

For all I know, I'm being watched. There are certainly many good sentinel posts in the area for scouts to keep watch on my movements. A large cactus is always a good spot. Either in nesting holes or on top of the large towering arms. 

It's also been rather windy here, and the white oleander blossoms and the cheerful yellow palo verde petals have been falling-- usually into the pool-- like rain. There are countless places in the Valley now where there are thick golden drifts of palo verde blooms lying in the gutters on the sides of streets. It's gorgeous.

It's also time for me to head on out to the corral for those links I've been saving for you. I wonder if I can get out there without being spotted by any avian scouts? Head 'em up! Mooooooooove 'em out!

  1. Oh, I love the sounds of the birds, Cathy. A few times during my life, there've been nests close enough to where I was living that I could see the baby birds out the window, and that's really special, too. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a Canadian village to explore.

    1. My house isn't shady enough for the birds to nest within sight of windows. Ah well!

  2. Around here, the nests have just been made. No babies yet. But, I shall be hearing 'cheep cheep' in my house in another week when baby chicks arrive.
