PhotoHunt: Thankful


The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Thankful" (Please click on the photos for a better look)

"Ma'am, my friends and I are most Thankful for the lovely chow you set out for us everyday."

Eastern Grey Squirrel

"Yes, we are - most Thankful!"

Red-Masked Parakeets

"Me, too!"

Female Northern Cardinal

I'm Thankful to be able to live our household motto: "No one leaves our home hungry"

Okay, maybe the occasional hawk... :-) Happy Weekend!

I lived on City Island, in the Bronx, NY for almost two years... In all that time, I was completely unaware that there were Quaker Parrots living in the wild all over the island... And it isn't like there were one or two. They are considered my ConEd to be a "pest".

You would have thought that in that time I would have SEEN one or someone might have mentioned that they were there!

I would have loved to see them.

Haha great shot. I love that no one leaves the garden hungry (raptors aside) We do our best to ensure the same... although with three active cats we don't encourage birds at ground level of course! Happy weekend

I just hope all the squirrels and the birds I feed at the backyard feel the same way.

I loved the squirrel! We have black ones here in Michigan...not so cute. My hunt is up, please come and visit

JyLnC said...

We have three or four squirrels that visit our feeder along with a cardinal couple but zero parakeets. Amazing and yes, they always appear thankful.

If you have time, please visit my photo hunt this week.
