Frivolous Friday! Baby Owls & Birds Galore

It’s Frivolous Friday!

Thought I would share some of the fun I squeezed in this week (in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work.)

Yep, this happened #1:

Our owl house is home to another brood of owlets!  We’ve been watching them since January – from canoodling, to egg laying, to hatching and nurturing-

We’ve had lots of owls start their life in our little owl house but watching them never gets old.

Mama owl had seven eggs (a record for our Owl House!) Sadly though, of the six that hatched only one is left….nature is a hard thing to watch, I’ll tell ya that.

Yep, this happened #2:

I just read an article that the greater the diversity of birds we are surrounded by, the happier we are and the better our quality of life – and I agree with that – how about you?

A 10% increase in bird diversity increases our satisfaction with life as much as a 10% pay raise, the researchers found.

So how’s that for a benefit of being outdoors?

This California Scrub Jay agreed with the researchers….

The happiest people are those who can experience numerous different bird species in their daily life, or who live in near-natural surroundings that are home to many species.

SO quick, run outside and start enjoying the birds!

The Sparrows tell you to rush outside….

Here are a few from my own backyard to get your happiness boost started.

Western Blue Bird

One of the sweetest little birds around has to be the Mourning Dove…especially when they hang around with their mate. So adorable.

And of course, hanging around with your mate often results in a nest….lol

Nuttall’s Woodpecker

Brown-headed Cowbird

Rusty Towhee

And as I jumped in my car the other day after a quick grocery store run, I checked my side view mirror and spotted this little guy admiring his reflection – isn’t that adorable?

So Yep. the Birds and the Bees are officially ‘out and about’ so it’s GOTTA BE SPRING!
