Boza and I Walk with George the Birdbrain…

Many times Boza and I walk and George the Birdbrain comes along. He defies my ability to get a good picture of him as we walk. But today, I almost caught him sitting on a telephone pole top. Then as he saw me stop to take his picture, he chirped and flew away. He sat above Boza in a tree and by the time I saw him again. He flew away again. Boza watched him the whole time, but would not tell me where George was hiding in the tree… 😉

This is George the Birdbrain; running away...

George is a regular on our walks…

Yesterday morning he followed us up to the bell tower and in a few minutes he had a huge praying mantis and was smashing its head against the ground. Then off he flew to home, with his prize. I have so far seen him with a snake, big worm, frog and now a praying mantis…

I mention George because he has been with us since he was a little baby bird and seems to want to stay in our company. He does what he wants, but when we walk; many times he is there, somewhere in the trees and or power lines. Following us around the Russian Village…

I have good pictures of him when we are in our yard. He is comfortable with me walking around and does not care if I get fairly close. But when out of the yard, he is skittish. Can’t blame him. It is a big world and Boza keeps kitties out of our yard…

I will get that picture of him as we walk. This time I was a split second to slow. So I settled for what I had…

This is part of nature that I tell about here on the blog and I know I am alright in the world, when animals accept me. Animals know about life and are not afraid to be non-politically correct. If they do not like you, they won’t be around you…

Also something that is important; Always listen to nature, for it will save your life at times…

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
