He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness...
Psalm 107 : 9
The female Rose-breasted Grosbeak
Arrives later than her mate..
On her migratory journey date..
Thoughts of food moves her wings..
To speed along for all good things.
Poetry by me, AJP
The female grosbeak was checking out the new red jelly dish and ruffling the feathers on her head in approval when I shot this picture...last night the old orange dish ( in previous picture) got chewed up in many pieces by an over zealous creature of the night who didn't stop there...It also jumped from the community bird feeder to the hummingbird feeder breaking off a piece of the top that holds the water to prevent the ants from eating the nectar..I found that feeder on the ground this morning minus the hook that attached it to the stand. The guilty party that did the damage apparently kept the hook as a souvenir. My husband cut the broken piece off so now it has a square top instead of round...Needless to say, I brought the containers in the house tonight so there will be no more episodes like that ...Earlier in the day a squirrel decided he loved oranges meant for the orioles... and took off running with an orange in his mouth:) Whoever heard of squirrels liking oranges? I guess you could say he is a fruitful squirrel.. What next???
