birds in the morning

Scripture, theology Add comments

When I woke up this morning I was feeling rather distracted. I didn’t want to get to work and my attempts to read fell apart when I realized words were passing by without getting into my head. So I sat and watched, looking outside for a while while letting my mind wander afield, trying to gain focus by letting go of time a little bit.

It turned out to be busy outside.

The mountain quails have returned for winter. Five of them.

The chickadees kept coming to the bird bath for a bit of water and some seed from the feeder. Black oil sunflower seeds keep them stopping by all the day.

The jays were mostly elsewhere, but a couple bounced in to see what the hubbub was about.

Finally, things quieted down, and the quail group wandered off, leaving a straggler for a few minutes.
