Every morning and evening this time of the year I hear these birds in the air. Many times they are right over my head while I am feeding and caring for the donkeys and horses. We continue to pray they will land in our hay field soon. I video taped them on a large farm here in Sequim, WA. Enjoy!
Our Barn is such a wonderful place, GOD has blessed our green barn with beautiful donkeys, horses and birds. The horses and donkeys are always busy and in need of some clean water, poop pick-up and of course food. Rocket Man is twenty-five a gray miniature donkey he wants a but rub.
Spring has arrived on the Donkey Whisperer Farm, the birds have returned to help combat fly’s and insects. The birds are busy building nests, chirping and planning for their children to be born. Spring brings the hope of a brand new beginning for humans and animals. Life is bursting with joy everywhere I look, I thank GOD for our farm and the blessings our farm brings.
This morning as I was preparing the morning meals for the donkeys and horses I noticed a different bird talking to me and looking down in the hay. This is not a barn swallow. The barn swallows place their babies up high in the barn. This mother bird has placed her nest in the middle of the hay stack. I will need to get my bird book out to determine what kind of bird she is.
The birds are a bit messy but they have a very important job now that spring has arrived and insects are bursting around the farm. Prepare a safe place for their babies and eat the flys and other insects. This really helps the horses and donkeys to live in a fly free zone. Nature is balance, without the birds we would have insects biting our horses and donkeys. I say come on in birds we love you. I will gladly clean up the bird poop if you will keep my farm insect free.
