Recent finding and Egret in Bush;  

*Oh, they don't get electric shock*

if we were on the ground...
I've never paid attention to the fact that birds being able to perch on electric cable until recently. My husband spotted the scene of the pictures and stopped the car remembering the silly question I asked before. When school girl, I'm not good at studying science-related subject p:)  He explained me and I checked with pc; I understand they don't have difference of voltage but not quite the feeling of reality.
Having this question seems funny for my husband (^^;)


*An Egret among the Bush*
While driving, my husband glimpsed an Egret like thing among the bush. He made a U-turn for me as there was a space to park.  So sorry that he flew away so soon. I couldn't even catch his front face. Wished to have better photos for linking to the bird's meme...     
             Something new for me to find an Egret among the bush.

Linking this post to;   "Nature Notes"   "Wild Bird Wednesday",

Thank you SO much for stopping by;
I feel really terrible that I haven't been able to visit you. 
But I think I'll have time from tomorrow...

Hello Miyako, wonderful shots of the pigeon and a great sighting of the Egret.. It seems that the birds know when they are safe and where to land..Thanks for sharing, have a happy day!

I've often wondered myself why birds don't get electric shocks while perched on electric cables. I guess I didn't pay too much attention in science class!

Loved the egret in the tree.

I was always told that they don't get shocked 'cause they're not touching the ground.

he's beautiful sitting in the greenery! i love your pigeons, too, and glad you read about the safety in the birds only touching the wire and being safe. :)

Thank you so much for the electricity lesson! I'm not good at those type of things either, so married an engineer. The egret is so lovely, such a graceful bird. Thanks Miyako! Hugs from Texas

Dearest Miyako,
It is not always easy when in a car for capturing moving birds. They don't wait for us to pose... You still were lucky enough.
The pigeons are lovely.
Hugs,
Mariette

Hi Miyako san. Those are such great photos of the pigeons! I've seen birds on electric cable since I was small, so I knew they wouldn't be shocked. But didn't really know the mechanism. Haha. Thank you for your information :-)
The photos of Egret are very beautiful! It is interesting to see Egret among bush indeed!

Have a great day, Miyako san!

Cool pigeon shots and a well spotted egret!

Hello Miyako... How interesting!! I did not know that about electrical wires and I LOVE learning something new and I always enjoy seeing your Nature Notes photos.. Thank you!..Michelle

Felicia said...

it is pretty cool that birds can sit on the wires, only if they touch one at a time.

pretty egret Miyako.

I've always wondered why they were able to perch and not be electrocuted- thank you, my dear friend! And we have a huge flock of egrets in our front pasture right now. They are lovely birds, and seem somewhat out of place with the huge cattle here.

Marie said...

A wise person asks questions and looks things up. A kind person shares the information! I think you are definitely both. I appreciated getting the graphics explaining why they don't get electrocuted. And I loved your photos. Have a wonderful week!

Sometimes we all get too busy to comment/visit. We all understand. Don't feel guilty or worry about it. Blogging is supposed to be fun -- not a 'job' ;>)

I smiled with you when you talked about your husband's reaction to your electricity question. I was just like you as a school girl and there are so many times over the 55+ years we have been married when Bill is surprised and amused at what I do NOT know! (But at least you and I are trying to understand now -- I think we should be proud of ourselves!!!)
