...when you're having fun, which is what we've been having for the most part, the other part being trying to stay cool . Summer! Busy. Fun. Hot. All of the above, though not necessarily in that order.
Here are two very short, little snippets of video* where time - and birdies, were flying by us - when second grandgirl and I saw the cutest little birds with the longest tails at a local birdfarm, last week. Wish I could remember what they were called, right now. If I think of it later, I'll add it (or if you know, please remind me!).** I do remember we were told they were in the finch family, though they're very different from any finches I've ever seen before. Wish I'd gotten a better video of them flying for you, but sometimes you just have to be in the moment, as time and the birds fly by.
* I tried and tried to embed the videos here, but the blog's apparently not having any of that embedding stuff, tonight. Though it's my first time ever, trying to do that, so it's probably just me not knowing what I'm doing.
But if you click on those highlighted links up there in that second paragraph, you should be able to see them on YouTube. Here's a photo, for now. Check out that tail! Tiny bird with a long, showy tail swooping behind him, like a Dr. Seuss character. Wish you could see him fly.
Hope this summer is being good to you.
**They're pin-tailed whyda finches. What interesting little birds. Apparently we were seeing the females there too, but they look more like garden-variety finches, very different from the males.
Back to summer slothing, now...
