Boid Neighbors

I had to share this picture that my dad sent. Mom and Dad are in Florida for the month of February. Smart move, very smart.

I laughed so hard at this picture of their bird friends who come to their window to visit. What a crew!

Hey, got anything to eat?

      That’s them alright! Right down to the peeeeenck feetz! Wood stork! 🙂

      I was going to brazenly guess “Black headed stork” but I would have just been pretending!

    They remind me of those scary angels on Dr. Who, where each time you blink then open your eyes, they’ve moved a bit closer.

  5. madtante says:

    Emmy’s right. That thing scares me. We’ve lots of blue herons on the farm and they’ll rip your head off.

    *snort* they aren’t foolin’ either. they mean business.

  8. That’s so funny! They look like they’re waiting to be fed. I can just imagine what your bird feeder would look like after one of them stepped on it, though.

    Two storks and and an egret! Nice!

    Awesome. We were excited to see Mr. and Ms. Cardinal hanging out in the backyard and Mr. Woodpecker was back on the utility pole in front of our house. It feels like we’ll survive winter after all!

    Wood Storks! I love them! They are one of FLorida’s most adaptable birds. They obviously are supposed to live in the Woods, but have become adapted and are often found in hotel fountains and decorative ponds!!!

    I would have ended up opening the doors to the house and letting them in, just to see what happened, cause they’re so funny looking.

  13. Jaypo says:

    I bust out laughing at that!!! There’s a woid I use for boids like that: it’s DOIT. Look at his feet!! Hilarious!

    OMG! So funny and very very cool. I would love that.
    “Oye, you makin’ fish again?”
