Birds of a Feather

click to enlarge

These bird houses are quite a few years old now too.
I never put them outside lol
They decorate under the tree at Christmas.
It is things like these that are home made, which make
holidays special and personal. I think it makes you feel good
to see things you made, appearing around this time of year.:)
The big house was made by my first son at Cub Scouts.

The two little ones were made by my other son and one day
they shall find the outdoors or be hung on a
tree or porch or shed where birds can lay eggs undisturbed by
cats and other critters.

We have a big commotion going on right now in BC
whereby song birds are being eaten by stray cats.
People are complaining but then they also complain when birds
damage their houses and become noisy, which they do. lol
We also have eagles and owls swooping down to see if they can get a grip on puppies
or small dogs and then we hear the other birds nesting in the area shrieking and flying around the predator and attacking it from all sides.

Well, what is treasure for some is not for others and vs.
I happen to like to work with nature and would love my kids
appreciating it as well.

The Dead Sea

Ay the dead sea

Dead and bereft of life

I stand watching the waves roll in

And the beautiful orange sunset

That has never changed

Once there were dreams of life at sea

and now all is dead.

We search the planets for evidence of life.

Has there been life somewhere else?

Or are we creatures designed

so Gods can play out their whims?

Will the truth come out when it is too late to do anything about it?

We say the universe is expanding.

Is that a good thing or a bad?

And what happens to the center once the waves

disappear out of sight?

Once the waves drift out into vast oceans of space,

where will our music and our stories go?

What will our heroes say…..we died for nothing?

We fought for nothing?

We cried for nothing and suffered for nothing

And wept for nothing? Exploded for nothing.

A macabre comedy

Or are we projecting sounds and history into space for some one else to discover for some one else to relive

Eon light years away as our famous people heard and saw them from space to enlighten this world.

We are all forgerers, all copyrights. People, born of people.

People learning from people

People eating off of people.

Man is a boring entity.

We smile and laugh at the same mistakes, the same jokes and books and


And babies.

All babies born so beautiful innocent and free.

Just to be taught and raised to enslave and be enslaved.

What is the answer ?

To whose tune are we dancing to

and where is the Pied Piper leading us?

These birdhouses are so beautiful that I don't blame you for not putting them outside.

The Oliver cabin in my post is open for visitors. It's part of the outdoor museum of Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountains.

The birdhouses are far too pretty to put outside but perfect for under the Christmas tree. :)

Those birdhouses are adorable!

They are very beautiful birdhouses.

That's a sad thing about the songbirds. I suppose birds will do what they will do even if humans build their way into the birds' world.

Sandy - people can all get together and bring bird houses to a bird sanctuary like beside a lake or ocean and put these bird houses up and there will not be a cat problem there.
People can plant wild flowers in those areas for them as well.
I don't think you have to attack other animals because of birds.
I can't imagine keeping my cats indoors. They love outside but being neutered, they are always beside the house.
One died and one is still alive but once it goes no more animals for me.
Its getting to be too complicated to keep them and this is a bad sign for animals if people begin to think like I do.
