I have a lovely assortment of birds that visit my front yard. Mostly chickadees, lots of varieties and colors. A pair of blue birds, a small and medium sized woodpecker and a few black birds but they don't really count. One bird is really special with orange on it's chest. Another one is a black headed robinish type. I like that one a lot. I watch the birds from my den with my cats. I have their bird tv also known as a scratching post with a a seat, up against the window. A bird feeder hangs from the tree. Another feeder hangs on the porch which the cats can see from the living room window. A double sized cake feeder hangs down from the eves of the house, hanging in front of the window. From that living room tv, my cats can see so many of them coming and going. Bird tv is flurishing at my home.
Why bird tv you may ask. Coyote Mom and her babies have invaded the woods near my yard. Just when you think she may have ventured off, you hear the evening howl that she makes and the yips from her youngsters when she has brought them home a treat. No wonder most of the cats in my neighborhood are indoor only, as mine are.
I've lived here for almost 13 years. My cats wondered in my big yard for 11 of them. That's when the development outside of my street started to cut down all the trees. Mom Coyote made her new home in my back and side woods about two years ago. Since then my cats have been indoor and due to a total complaint box with ideas of what to do during the day, I bought the many bird feeders and put them up for my cats entertainment.
I find myself settling down with a cup of coffee and viewing with them. We watch with me telling them about this one or the other. My baby cat sometimes mews away while I'm on the puter and I roll my chair over to him so I can see who's visiting. We have a grand time enjoying nature from what we call bird tv.
Ashton asking to go outside. He told me he wanted to do an up close and personal interview for the meowning news. The request was politely refused due to contract disputes from the local flocks.
