Window Watch : Natural Shower

Here’s an eagle thoroughly enjoying and utilising a thunderstorm!

Well, there must be some difference between showering unshackled and showering in confined spaces, right?

This eagle has been sitting here for several minutes now, opening and shutting its wings, and turning this way and that, and getting a full-drench.

It is Dusk

A bird is back

To stop in its nest

It is dusk

Time to rest

A hush steals in

The sky turns golden

It is dusk

Come to soothen

Darkness descends

The world shuts down

It is dusk

Your oats… are sown!

One Little Bird

You come to the tree

and twitter away

Exhibit some spirit

and hold me in sway

You jump about

With restless energy

And commune with your mate

in complete synergy

Watching you every morn

And hearing your song

Gives me joy

All day long

A Crow Looks In

I am sure this crow and its mate recognise me. Whenever we meet across the window, this bird looks pointedly at me and/or caws or comes to the closest branch possible and looks in.

I do leave food everyday for birds at another window. So, they probably want that service here too. Or may be it’s just a hello! Whatever it is, it sure is cute!

Predator – a falcon from my window

A Peregrine Falcon subjects the surrounding to a leisurely scrutiny.

Well, I stood preparing breakfast and was looking out my window idly. And saw a parrot 🦜 perch atop a neem tree. Almost instantly though, it took off, just as another bird landed on a neighbouring tree.

Thinking it must be a predator it fears, I ran to grab my camera and on focusing the lens saw this one. Af peregrine falcon.
