‘I thought this was a bird blog!’

on June 22, 2012

Angelina: It’s a bird blog primarily, of course, but Julie keeps going off topic.

Queenie: I’ve noticed that. She keeps blogging about silly old men!

King: Like me?

Queenie: Darling, never – your tail feathers will grow back soon!

Baby Turkey: I have now held this pose for several hours but Julie still hasn’t noticed!

Diamond: Me too.

Guinneas: I’m sure she’ll get back on topic soon. We always do.

Phoenix 1: She hasn’t taken much notice of me lately either, which is a bit hurtful.

Godfrey: I suggest we all start biting her. Watch and learn.

Emery 2: Noooooooooooooo!

Tina Turner: Yes – Godfrey is right!

    I love them all… so beautiful photographs… And also they are so funny, especially the last one fascinated me. Thank you dear Julie, love you, nia

  8. I love when you go “off” topic-but these birds are certainly deserving of attention – baby turkey is just gorgeous, but so are all the others – this was a great post – lightened my day
