Floofy as a description is not limited to cats I am thinking with all the feather floof this Nuthatch has going on. It was a bit breezy on Sunday and he had the wind blowing out of the South right up his floofy derriére. He and his bird herd join us under the Oaks at 4 oh clock for wine time. He isn’t shy about letting CH know the amber dish is without sunflower hearts. He chats to CH on his way to and from the workshop to fill up the little dish. This one follows CH from tree to tree, little bird feet making tiny bird step noises on the bark as he yakyak yak-YAKs until CH comes out with the full dish and sets it in the holder.
I call the Nuthatches “The Mimes” because when their feathers aren’t all floofy but rather sleek and flat to their bird bodies they remind me of mimes. Nothing silent about them at all though. They have so much to say! We know.. they say it all during wine time.
The title of this post… I think I may have picked up the phrase from Tinykittens, a foster home for rescue cats and kittens with Foster Mom Kitten Whisperer Shelly Roche in Fort Langley, BC. You can watch the kittens live 24/7 at http://tinykittens.com/live. Tinykittens Facebook page.. http://facebook.com/tinykittens How did I ever go from Nuthatches to kittens? Oh my! To watch The Mimes at The Tiny Ten.. you have to come visit!
