We are a family!!

Sometimes, even the most mundane things can give you deep feelings of joy and happiness and can put that wide smile on your face within a second. The best part is that all such things are free! What I mean here is that we just have to be a little observant of our surroundings and keep an open eye. A small birdie decorating its nest to a tiny and colorful butterfly fluttering around that yellow flower to two baby squirrels running after each other to a new flower bud and the like and can make you forget all your worries and take your mind off your problem. This post is all about such beautiful and happy go lucky creatures of good God.

Recently, two birds decided to build their nest in my storeroom. While the male bird would bring in all the straw and other material and would hand it over to its lady, she would do something really really cute; she would always ponder for 2-3 seconds and then place it appropriately as if some interior decorator is thinking about the exact placement of furniture and lampshades. I have been observing this pair since the time they started fluttering around the storeroom. 
Now, there lay two beautiful white eggs and I am eagerly waiting for them to get hatched so that I can listen to the sweet melody of two new lives, the most beautiful creation of God. I feel we all should imbibe this thing that we hold no right to kill any of the living creatures for food or fun; they also inhabit the same earth as we do.

  2. You are indeed lucky to be able to enjoy these wonderful birds up close. I hope you will continue to be able to observe them and take pictures throughout the fledging of the babies. They will provide many happy memories for you.

  17. Sometimes, nature just reminds us that happiness is right here around us. at our doorstep, or sometimes, in the store room.

    Take care, and protect the eggs from cats.
