This weekend we went for a hike. As usual, we chose a local beauty spot. Also as usual, Nikki took along some critter appropriate nibbles. Today, as well as the usual squirrels and chipmunks she fed ducks, geese, and Chickadees. She was the Bird Whisperer.
I stood by and watched as she stood as still as a rock, patiently cooing and literally whispering to the birds until one by one they overcame their natural inhibitions and came hesitantly to her hand.
Her smile made me smile.
For a few hours we forgot the world and just enjoyed the sights and sounds of nature. The trail got busier, so we took a side trail or two and had the place to ourselves. And I took some video along with a whole bunch of Autumn photos for the 2020 collection.
This short shows a few minutes of a most enjoyable day. Hope you enjoy.
