My Birds Name their Favorite Songs


I don't know about you----but my backyard birds talk to me!!!! Recently, I asked them to list their favorite songs. SO---here they are just for you!!!! Above, one of our Brown Thrashers told me his favorite song. Since he and his lady just had 3 new babies, he said that his favorite song is ROCK A BYE BABY. Appropriate, don't you think???? Below are others.









Mourning Dove: HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN







Mama Robin and baby: WHEN THE RED, RED ROBIN COMES BOB-BOB-BOBBIN' ALONG









A young House Finch (I think): THANK GOD, I'M A COUNTRY BOY









female Goldfinch: AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH









Some kind of Wren (????): BORN TO BE WILD







Mourning Dove: TIP TOE THROUGH THE TULIPS









male Goldfinch: SHE GOT THE RING, AND I GOT THE FINGER







young Tufted Titmouse: SHAKE YOUR BOOTY









male Cardinal: IF MY NOSE WERE FULL OF NICKELS, I'D BLOW IT ALL ON YOU









Mourning Dove at the birdbath: SITTIN' ON THE DOCK OF THE BAY









baby Cardinal: WHOLE LOTTA SHAKIN' GOIN' ON







baby Mourning Dove: MAMA, GET THE HAMMER (THERE'S A FLY ON PAPA'S HEAD)




My birds have quite a sense of humor, don't they????? ha ha ha.... Hope you enjoyed hearing about their favorite songs!!!!!!


Hugs,

Very imaginative...and cute post!

The picture of the momma and baby robin reminded me of a book I used to read to my children about Itty Bitty Robin--a baby robin who was afraid to fly. The momma kept saying, "Fwy, Baby, Fwy."

Thanks for the good memories.
