happy bird day ...

When I looked at my calendar this morning, I discovered that today is "Bird Day." Well, I'm a very curious person, and I love holidays, so I googled Bird Day to find out what it was all about. After reading about it, I decided the real purpose of Bird Day is a bit too PC for me... but, hey, I love birds, so, let's celebrate!!

Here they are, God's wonderful feathered flying (mostly!) creations... just like us, they come in all shapes and sizes and colors and faces... some walk, some run, some waddle, some swim, and, yes, some even fly!! : ) But most of all, they give glory to God... just by "being"--His creation... His magnificent, beautiful, wonderful creation...

I even wrote a song for the occasion...

Happy Bird Day to you!
Happy Bird Day to you!
Happy Bird Day, dear biiiirrrrrds!
Happy Bird Day to you!!

And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." ~Genesis 1:20-22

Happy Bird Day to you!


  1. Oh Sharilyn... =)

    Happy belated Bird Day then. Did you take all the pictures posted? I particularly love the 4th picture, that cute red.

    I love birds for one big reason, their ability to fly. It seems like immense freedom to me. I like that.

  2. Sadly, only crows, blackbirds, and the occasional cardinal are around here this time of year. It was nice to see a seagull again. I'd almost forgotten what they looked like...

  3. I love that second pic. It almost looks like that bird is trying to get you. RUN SHARILYN!! RUN!!!!

  4. i love the pic of you with that huge bird. You look pretty calm for someone sitting so close to a ??? what kind of bird is that anyways??

  5. star--yes, all these photos are mine. my favorite is the duck with his bill tucked under his feathers. i love the details and colors!

    billy...well, you could always get a seagull fix by watching Nemo! i love them in that movie; they truly captured the seagull way...MINE!! my favorite winter bird back in MI (where I grew up) was the plump and cute!

    dave, you make me laugh!! i'm still running!! :)

    hey carol! fancy meeting you here! that bird is actually a pelican! really! you just can't tell as well without him showing his beak/bill. actually, his name is pancho, and he rode with us for part of our estuary boat tour in Mazatlan in Mexico.


I'm so glad you've stopped by! I love hearing from you and can't wait to read your comments! Let me know what's on your mind and your heart today...
