Strange little friends
Since the guinea fowl suddenly turned up on my doorstep just over a month ago I seem to have attracted another type of bird. I’m sure they are some kind of finch, but I can’t identify their variety (and there are hundreds of them).
The males appear to have a salmon coloured breast. They’re very cute little things and love to sit outside the Writer’s Nook and watch me write (oh yes, it can be a little off-putting at times because I want to photograph them!).
Maybe they’ve arrived en masse to protest because I’m writing a story about a cat (which I was inspired to do by some of you after I posted the photo of the cat moon. Thank you!)
Here’s another finch, You can’t see it’s colours, but I loved the fact that it was sitting on the sugar cane flower just before sunset. Now that’s what I call relaxation!
The finches I’m used to seeing are the crimson ones (like the one I took last year of ‘Elvis’ below).
Also, the Bee Eaters are back and I managed to capture this one gazing thoughtfully across the freshly cut sugar cane.
I don’t have a name for my ‘cat’ novel yet, but I can tell you one thing – I’m really enjoying writing it!
***Have a great week!***
P.S – the guinea fowl are settling in very well.
