White Eye Enjoying Orange – Port Elizabeth, South Africa
Garden Birds’ Breakfast
Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
What a joy and blessing it is to have these faithful little friends in our back garden, every day
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN – THERE ARE 13 PICTURES
The table is bare.
Lets prepare breakfast
For breakfast? Cheese, orange, apple and wild bird seed
Wild bird seed – always a favorite
The cheese is on the sea saw
The rest of breakfast is ready to put on the table
The start of breakfast
“Did you hear what happened?” Gossiping while enjoying wild bird seed
“Look what I have!” A mouse bird with apple in its claw
“My apple! Watch out for my sharp beak!” – An assertive mouse bird
“Did I hear a mouse bird coming?” White eyes love oranges
“What happened to the cheese?” – A worried rock pigeon
Doves and a rock pigeon eating seed thrown on the grass
That beautiful rock pigeon again
Praise the Lord
White eyes social distancing
This picture shows two South African white eyes leading by example by obeying the social distancing rule for white eyes (one inch). They are drinking sugar water. White eyes and their close relatives are small little birds found all over the world.
This picture was taken late this afternoon in Port Elizabeth by a good, long time friend of mine. He is a great lover of wildlife and has gone on safari many times, not only here in South Africa, but also in Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe.
He is going to send me some more pictures of wild life and also some pictures of very interesting places he has visited, often way off the beaten track.
I know we will enjoy them.
