Breakfast Deck and sighting an Osprey

Coffee for one Posted by Hello

If you ever need to get away and don't have the time, energy, money, free space to do so, simply have a cup of coffee on this breakfast deck. You can get away for the time it takes to drink the coffee, water the window box and look to see if there are birds sitting on the telephone pole.
We saw an Osprey with a fish in it's mouth, just sitting on the telephone pole.
It was there a least 15 minutes. I think he was showing off.
It was a fish bigger than our gold fish, so we figured he must have caught it in the dam, up the road a few miles. He needed to rest before he made plans to eat his brunch.

Osprey are magnificent birds, they can be 22"long and 54" wide.
It was something to see. We took pictures of him, before we had the digital camera.
So I can't post his picture. We keep a bird book and mark the date and place where we see birds from our home or camping trips. I highly recommend the hobby.

The bird cage, (you see in the photo, which I keep in the sun room /breakfast deck,) is for my little lovebird, Birdie. You will see a post of him soon. He is very pretty and very sweet. He is only 49 grams. That is less than 1/2 an ounce.
For a little bird, he catches his share of pet attention.
The little cage is his outside cage, for when the sun is shining and he wants to hear the birdsongs of the morning.

Have another cup of coffee, .... Escape......
