FEATHER TREE IS BACK!

Post by lovekitties on Tue Dec 04, 2012 1:58 pm

one of my favorite sights in the winter is my morning sight of the feather tree, on my way to work.
This is a roundish shrub in a neighbor's yard. Every morning around dawn it is literally covered in fat little sparrows, sitting in the bare branches, looking like so many leaves and chirping away.

That must be quite a sight! I envy you Lovekitties.

We have a shrub full of little birds too just down the block from me, but it's an evergreen so you don't see them but boy do you hear them! The shrub is moving even if there is no wind at all.

Is it a favorite migration stopover spot for them? Oh, I'd love to see a pic!

our sparrows don't migrate. they stay all winter. I also have some pigeons roosing in the well between my wall and air conditioner. I'm not so glad to hear them in the middle of the night. LOL
I've got to remember to take a camera (don't have a cel phone yet) and see if i can get a picture of them

We have an evergreen hedge in our front yard that is full of sparrows right now. When we walk past, they sometimes all fly up at once. Gives me a shreck every time.

My sis has a lilac bush next to her garage that's like that.....every time someone walks by they all take off in a cloud! Who'd have thought that little bush could hold so many?
