Acrobatic Birds and Workers;


*Birds are Acrobatic♪*
These pictures of birds were taken from the same tree and from upstairs.  It was a fine day late last Dec.  Running after winter birds, I got a little sniffle p:-)   So I'll cut short writing; I really admire the way how they can do to have the nut fruit berry of the tree acrobatically. 

        They are  Dusky Thrush, Brown-eared Bulbul, Japanese Tit;

 







*Workers for Transmission Tower*
Yesterday while driving down the little hill from our house to visit friend, my husband found the workers on the transmission tower, removing old one. I instantly remembered seeing how birdies were having lunch on the tree.  I thought these workers are SO brave working with lifeline around their body.  Oh, they both are really ACROBATIC☆☆☆ 
     A couple hours later when we drove back, the tower had already gone :-) 
Hope this topic fits the Fence link to Tex.



























Linking this post to, "GoodFences" , "Saturday's critters", "id-rather-b birdin" ,

I'm hoping to concentrate returning your sweet visits until next week;
See You Soon and wishing you to have a wonderful rest of the week.

Hello, Miyako! the workers on the tower must be brave. I would be afraid of the heights. Your birds are all beautiful, what a lovely collection. Great photos. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the week ahead!

Love those sweet birds..We get these little yellow birds in our backyard that remind me of the birds in your second shot...I am scared of heights if what I am standing on or sitting in is wobbly..

It's amazing how agile birds are, how they twist and turn to eat seeds and berries.

Hello Miyako!:) You caught some lovely pictures of birds through your window.They are wonderful acrobatic images. The workers on the transmission tower have a head for hights,and have to be as agile as little birds, but are far more courageous.

TexWisGirl said...

very nice how you tied the acrobats together in one post. hope you feel better!

Latane Barton said...

I never thought of it, but those birds really are inventive in going about getting food. Wish I could move my body around like that.

Grantham Lynn said...

Great shots. I'm glad I'm nor working so high!

Linda Kay said...

I loved seeing your birdies, Miyako. I agree that those guys who work on power lines, etc. are very brave, but I guess they are prepared with safety belts and such. Can't do heights myself anymore. Have a wonderful day and weekend, my friend.

Tanya Breese said...

the workers look a little like the birds!

Tamago said...

What pretty birds! They sure are very acrobatic. I have no idea how they can manage to eat like that :-) And those workers are really brave! Even with the safety harness and belts, it must be very scary until you get used to working up so high!
I'm sorry you got some sniffles. I hope you get better soon. Have a great day, Miyako san!

Those were cute birds and yes they do seem to be masters of acrobatics. Those men were as well removing that tower. I don't think that would be a job I would handle well at all.

Dearest Miyako,
Oh, being outside in the elements can cause us to catch a cold... Be careful and hope you soon fluff back to feeling well.
Love the bird photos and also the acrobats and yes, they do risk a lot by being out there so high.
Hugs,
Mariette

Beautiful shots of the birds!

Those birds really are entertaining little acrobats! So sweet. I always marvel at the jobs some people do, so dangerous. I too am glad they are skilled and there for us!

eileeninmd said...

Hello Miyako, I wanted to stop back and say thank you for linking up and sharing your post. I enjoyed your pretty birds. Have a happy weekend!

Christian Weiß said...

Beautiful birds and photos.

Marie C said...

Very scary job! We all depend on workers like that for so much! Love the adorable birds...great photos!

Anni said...

With your post, I think I'd rather be the birds instead of those construction workers!!! At least if I fell, I'd have wings to guide me to a safe landing.

Excellent share sweet friend!!

Thanks so much for using the linking tool this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'...it's appreciated!!!

Dearest Miyako,
Well, the 31st was a special day for you and for me... It used to be your dear Dad's Birthday and it was the day my Mom got cremated. There was a 1st anniversary Mass in my hometown's Church on Sunday in honor of Mom.
In a way I'm glad that January is over with. So many sad memories.
Also my health was bad. First a flu at Christmas, than a lingering bronchitis and I pulled myself together for catching up on so many things in a couple of days, laundry, house cleaning and cooking a dinner for 12 for Pieter's Monday Night Club. It worked out great and I got lots of compliments but since I'm a wreck. Severe mid back pain and especially at night it is bothering me so I'm sleep deprived.
Because of my kidney disease I cannot take pain killers, just taking a supplement of Kurkuma which helps with inflammation and rheumatic pains. Hoping that I soon feel fit again so I can presume my household chores. Today we both walked, it was very sunny and didn't need a coat. That is good.
Love and hugs from across the ocean.
Mariette

Nora said...

the birds are all so cute, lovely shots and really nice blog. cheers from Canada.

Fun60 said...

A good comparison between the birds and the construction workers. I often wonder how the birds manage to cling onto those thin branches so easily.

Klara said...

I admire those workers.

Photo Cache said...

I don't know how those workers get their jobs done. I'm scared of heights so this is not the job for me.
