This Tuesday is for the Birds

Today is Tuesday and i don't feel i've accomplished much of anything this week. I've been off from work since last Friday. Taking a short "staycation". It was a dreary weekend - cloudy, chilly and rain. Today was the first time we have seen sunshine in the past few days. I've been trying to spruce up my garden and finish up some projects.
Some White Winged Doves have finally decided to come to my feeder that i put up last week. They seem to be having some difficulties as they are too big and my feeder is too small.They teeter and the birds lose their balance. They do love eating the seed that spills on the ground until our little dog runs out and chases them off. i managed to get some photos of them in the trees where they would fly to wait until the dog goes back in the house and they can go back down for more seed.

Later i took a walk to a nearby park. There were a couple of mom and older people taking what must be their regular morning walks. A couple of ducks were swimming along hoping someone would toss them a couple of pieces of bread. When we were younger, my mom would bring us to this same little area to feed the ducks. They never seem to get enough of the bread.
 I've lived in this suburb for 40 years now and not much has changed. And here it is almost at the end of my week and not much has changed around the house either. All the projects i wanted to get done are for the most part still undone. I will have to be super woman during the next 2 days and see what i can get accomplished. If i can get my files cleared out and everything else filed aways properly that will be a huge accomplishment. Then my sewing table will once more be my sewing table vs. my catch all table.

Those birds are big! Great shot. I hope you accomplish what you want to, but know there is always tomorrow to get done what you didn't today...(the words of my mother). :)

I really like the birds in the tree. What are they? They look like pigeons but not at the same time. Have a better rest of the week. Take care. xxx

I think these are Northern Mockingbirds ...although the seed i've put out is for finches, they like it just fine too.
