So. I’ve seen these on 2 blogs already, but they are SO fab – and affordable..$20 each!
I must jump aboard.
I almost named this post Hitchcockian Hootenanny, until my fellow wildlife lovin’ girlfriend pointed out that a group of owls is indeed….yup…a parliament.Â I’ll ask George Clinton and Bootsy Collins for forgiveness another time.
I’ve become that crazy wildlife chick and I can’t apologize enough.Â My small readership has just evaporated I’m sure, but I can’t help myself.Â After 10 months of mystery and wonder, the elusive owls have decided it’s time to teach the kids how to hunt….10 feet from my window.
The flurry of hushed excitement in the house is accompanied by my incessant snapping of photos, and the bold, yet stealthy, step outside to try and get a bit closer.Â The owls start to gather and fly toward me rather than fleeing….at which point, my crafty counterpart decides that, maybe, I might want to step back inside.Â Please let me be smarter than Tippi Hedren… (although I did dress as her a couple of Halloweens…hmmm..)
BTW, my new stalkers are barred owls aka hoot owls..however,Â I am NOT politely asked “who cooks for you”, but am offered menacing screeches I discern as “give me a chipmunk or I’ll claw your eyes out!”
Noted….moving back inside to talk about cheap stuff again.
I’ve been lonely for my birds since the scavenging raccoons made off with ALL 3 of my bird feeders in the night a few weeks back.Â This will have to do.Â I’m thinking the raccoons will have difficulty following the eightfold path….
Here’s another round of budget birdies….
Spring is in the air, so here’s the second round of my budget bird loves.
So, those who know me know I got thing for birds – at a distance – I’m not a crazy bird lady who keeps flocks in cages, but I love watching them outdoors and having them as a motif in my home.Â Birds are not just for the holidays, but all year round!Â For example: The felt birds would be great in a grouping over a crib!Â Here is small sampling of some cool birds out there…some new, some have been around awhile, but IMHO I deem to be classic – and affordable.
