Last weekend Alain and Sophie went out to run some errands and spend some time together. Shortly after they left, Clara went down for her nap. I made a chai, sat down in my chair and started to read and answer some emails. The weather outside was really beautiful and I had put the birds out on the deck (oh, how they do love to be outside!). As I was typing away, I heard some fluttering going on....but that's the norm around here and I hardly notice it any more. BUT, suddenly, I realized there shouldn't be any fluttering because our birds were in their locked cage out on the deck. I knew immediately what had happened. I had the backdoor propped open to let in some fresh air. One of our resident birds had obviously flown right into the house. So I slowly tiptoed to the kitchen. No bird. I peeked around the corner to the dining room and spotted the little booger immediately. I ran to get my camera. As the feathery cutie flew from spot to spot, I took a few shots.
I was clearly stressing this cutie out so I went to fold a load of laundry. My back was to the dining room. It didn't take long but I heard the swoosh of wings as he flew by me and right back out the door!
It was so much fun while it lasted!!!!
