New Years Eve 2015 On The Donkey Whisperer Farm, Trumpeter Swans


Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

Hubby and I woke up to a cool brisk dry 29 degree’s on the farm this morning. Oh what a beautiful day it is as finally the rain has stopped and the sunshine is back in sunny Sequim, WA.  As we took our new puppy for a morning run GOD granted us with a real treat, we had a visit from the “Trumpeter Swans” flying over the farm they fly to the West in the morning and East at night no doubt to roost. Jesus Christ gave us this blessing just in time to capture the photos below. 

We are forever grateful to get to live here on our twenty acre farm and look forward to building our home. For now living in the 5th wheel is home sweet home. Many blessings come with the 5th wheel, tiny living, less housework. More time to play, still we look forward to the new year. Select Trumpeter Swans, Dungeness for more details.

Yellow is the new black: Orioles

Yellow is the new black: Orioles

Beautiful Blog!

verseherder

An oriole
empties her skirt
pockets, and weeps,
she fears that
we may paint her
fully yellow once
she falls asleep.

Seeing Orioles in the wild makes my insides flutter. It isn’t that they are merely gorgeous. Orioles look like they are on a mission from another planet. Perhaps to tell our world that there is such a thing as too much yellow. And to gently suggest that the shadows may return but so will the sun.

Birds of the Bible – Not Seeing Or Hearing

Birds of the Bible – Not Seeing Or Hearing

Check out this blog for bird lovers and Jesus lovers!

Lee's Birdwatching Adventures Plus

While reading in Isaiah lately, I came across this verse:

“Seeing many things, but you do not observe; Opening the ears, but he does not hear.” (Isaiah 42:20 NKJV)

When Dan and I visit aviaries, we spend quite a bit of time in them. Yes, we are birdwatchers and do photography, but it still amazes me the ones who come in, look around as they walk through, and then leave. They may be in there five minutes. We are there for 30, 45, 60 minutes or longer, depending on the size of the aviary.

Me and my big mouth causes me to speak up and point out birds they just walked by and never saw. Most times it is appreciated, but there are times when the kids (especially) only want to see the “big” animals. Well, a 6 foot Sarus Crane is “big.”

Safely Enveloped: Hummer Rescue


I love hummers too!

The Beauty Along the Road

We love to watch the hummingbirds feeding on our porch. The cats watch them, too, but pretend to not be interested as they know the hummers are much too fast for them ….except when they fly into a window and are knocked unconscious momentarily. After the telltale thump against the window, we quickly ran outside, saw the tiny bird on the deck and chased the cats away. My husband picked him up gently and held him in his hands. It was a male ruby-throated hummingbird recognizable by the bright red throat coloring.

The cats feigned disinterest but kept watching.

As he protectively held the tiny bird in his hands, the little one rallied a bit

Soon, he looked alert and was in control of his body again

In the next moment, he was gone:

Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker


Birds are another one of my favorite things to study. Here is a new blog I am following enjoy!

nature has no boss

YBSS_1

We followed this guy around in very dark pine forest while on a hike in Yellowstone National Park for quite some time before he finally settled down for a little break. Luckily he chose a spot where just enough light was getting in through the trees to get a somewhat decent photograph of this wonderful looking bird. It was the first time we had seen a Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker and hopefully not the last.

Happy Friday.
