It's been my own little nature show around here. I've been watching mom and dad bird feed their babies for two weeks. The nest is about 30 feet from the ground, so I don't get a great view but I can climb onto the hillside and get a little better perspective. I've been hearing the baby birds chirp for over a week and today one of them popped a head out after mom fed the babies what looked like a mouthful of red ants.
This nature stuff makes my day! I know it must seem so insignificant in the grand scheme of life, and maybe even boring to city dwellers, but not to me; this is what feeds me and makes life make sense when there's so much crazy in the world.
I'm an artist, writer, photographer, private investigator and an activist in small ways.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
"The moment one gives close attention to anything,
even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
