Thursday in Heaven . . .

This bird scene in Heaven was converted to sepia from a photograph below. It is a birdhouse borrowed from my kid friends Leah and Sam and nestled in one of the plants in our house Heaven for our free flying birds to enjoy! It is perfect for Mary's Sepia Scenes and Tufa Girl's Cheeprooms. And for Self-Sagacity's Thursday Two Questions:

Have you ever stopped to listen to a bird's call?
Have you ever stopped and really listen to an animal communicate with you and what did they say and how did you respond?

And my own answers to my two Qs:

1. Yes, all the time ;-)
2. Yes, all the time and initially they want something to eat and I give it to them. Most times they just want to be near you and I do that whenever I can.

For all animal whisperers, bless you!

For all animal huggers and keepers, may you have bountiful blessings, good health, loads of humor, unending joy, and perfect love!

Yes, I have, meny times, most birds when they needed help with something.

Lisa said...

Awesome pictures both of them.

I like both photos, Lui, but I think I actually like the sepia better because the light seems more obvious. :)

I love to listen to birds! And I think animals try to communicate with us all the time. If I'm relaxed, I listen and try to understand.

The sepia turns the modern birdhouse into an antique - the workmanship of the past built with style and care. Both pictures are lovely!

nice sepia.
Lovely Love Birds. I also have love birds.

Luna Miranda said...

i like the sepia, too.
to answer your questions:

1. yes, i usually do.
2. yes...friends and family say that Fritz and I speak the same language. sometimes, it's not what an animal says, but their body language, the look in the eyes, and yes, the tail.:p

During the spring, I pay especially close attention the songs of birds. They seem to convy their happiness when they sing. Occaionally, I'll talk back to squirrels when they chatter back and forth. I sort of imagine them say, "Either, learn squirrel or don't join in." LOL.

DoanLegacy said...

1) Yes..
2) Yes again but I don't understand what they're saying, although I got it when they're fighting ..

I can't help but listen to birds' call, since my front and back yard are often full of birds screeching at each other. They sometimes make so much noise, it's deafening. And yes, I listen to animals (mostly their body language) when I take my 3-mile walks around the farm. Mostly, the non-flying kind are planning how they'll get away if I turn out to be dangerous. The birds that swoop down near my head are trying to lead me away from their nests. The large Canadian Geese and crane, just ignore me until I get too close. Haven't made friends with any of them yet!

1) I love listening to the birds.

2) I would love to know what they are saying, but I can't. Their behavior though can tell the story just fine if we just take time to observe them.

I must admit I prefer the color version. Lovely photo, adorable birds.

Crafty Gardener said...

Your bird friends look like they enjoy that birdhouse.

SquirrelQueen said...

Both photos are beautiful but the color is my favorite because it shows the lovely colors of the little birds.

1) Yes, every time I can. I like to listen to them call back and forth to each other.

2) All the time, have you ever listened to all the different types of meows and mewing sounds a cat can make? I am also, of course, fluent in squirrel, we have frequent conservations.

I like the color photo as well, the light shinning through is very special.
I tried to listen to their calls, though they are not loud enough. We have a lot of hummingbirds, the other kinds are more annoying.
I am not around animals very much. No pets nearby.
