Early morning noises

I remember at least one of you mentioned you don’t have Cardinals in your geographical location.

There are penty of Cardinals in mine. This is what the male sounds like when he’s looking for the female:

I was sitting on the back deck listening to the bird noises. It was 8 am on Sunday and still relatively quiet. Slowly, other noises started to pepper the air – propeller planes, a woodpecker, someone’s screen door opened and closed, a small child talking…

I tried to capture the Woodpecker but couldn’t time it right.

But the Cardinal, he kept looking for the wife. 😢

Seems she went shopping. πŸ˜€

No fair, us humans can only do curbside pickup… πŸ™„

So of course, puppy arrived and started eating or chewing something. Could it be the missing scissors?

It is so good for my mental health to have these quiet mornings in the sunshine.

I sit here with my phone and wish other early morning people would chat with me… It’s been a long 15 months of isolation.

After a while, my partner arrives to look for the dog. He likes the early morning walks. That’s their thing. They go for at least an hour.

No way I could handle an hour walk with coffee in me. My bladder is the size of a pea. Get it? Ha ha… πŸ˜‚

Good morning Sunday peeps. 🌞🌻🌞

  1. Handsome Tucker looks like he is wanting some assurance that he’s being a good boy? We tend to be more morning people here too. Mainly because Lenny has learned how to pounce on dads kidneys and then lay on his side of the bed whilst dad is away grumbling about getting “labradors or poodles which would be better behaved”. It was lovely and quiet on the beach this morning however, yet again, we were attached to humans and we couldn’t roll in stinky stuff.

  2. No cardinals here, so thank you! I’ve got finches, phoebes, and sparrows… mourning doves and crows. I coo back at the male doves.πŸ˜‚

    I’m with you on the early morning solitude. I set my alarm to get up before I need to, just so I can have quiet time by myself. I don’t even let Zeus out of Ben’s room for a half hour. Its not much, but it something.

  3. An hour walk. The husband and I explored a new trail today which was very interesting near the water. We had a dangerous crow for awhile which inhabited our bird bath and dumped his food in the fountain. I think we got rid of him. You should try to join them for the walk one morning.

    1. I used to do the morning walks when I did dog sitting in my house. For 10 years, that was my thing.

      It’s ok for me to forgo the walk now. With the lockdown, solitude is hard to come by. With him out of the house for an hour and the teens sleeping, I have a bit of solitude which helps me to write the things I can’t when people are around interrupting me. So it works out for all of us. πŸ™‚

      1. I understand. For me, the better distraction is social media as my hands keep clicking there. I have it under control mostly. I try not to overdo things. I am able to work with a few distractions probably from having worked in some interesting workplaces which were noisy. I focus well but the computer and social media is challenging.

      2. I remember when my husband’s Army buddy and his teenage son lived with us for 6 months. They were so quiet. The son was always on the computer. I offered to take him to the library and he was like….what? Funny.

  4. There’s nothing like the melodious sound of chirping birds … it’s so peaceful. And do you put rocks in your flower pots so the wind doesn’t blow them over? I thought I was the only one who did that.

    1. The rocks are to prevent the squirrels from digging up my plants as they hide their nuts everywhere. I put the same rocks around the smaller plants in my garden too so they don’t dig up the roots. Stupid squirrels. πŸ˜›

  5. I am such an early morning person. The birds start as soon as a smidge of light arrives. I’ve had Starlings nesting in the eaves just outside my bedroom. The parents are making heroic attempts to get the young ones to leave the nest and those babies refuse. It gets really loud so sleeping later than 6AM is out.
