The Aviary Outside My Office Window

I am privileged to work from home; no commute, gas savings, clothes savings, food savings.

I also enjoy the window view I’ve been afforded in my home office. The window almost abuts a fence, but the fence is draped in a lovely vine that blooms with white flowers.

The spring season has brought about the most wonderful traffic in the little walkway outside my window of little sparrows, hummingbirds, and today, for the first time, doves.

I’ve watched the baby sparrows flittering over the flowery vine as if they were hummingbirds, and the hummingbirds just doing their hummingbird helicopter above the vine.

Today as I read an e-mail something caught my eye as it whizzed past the window, and as I glanced up I caught a dove fly by. I smiled and went back to the e-mail, but was again surprised to see the dove fly by in the opposite direction. Having fun are we? I thought. Back to the e-mail. Again. Here comes that goofy dove flitting by in a semi-slow mo one way and then the other. I laughed out loud. It reminded me of a vaudeville routine.

Later in the afternooon I stepped out onto our patio to enjoy a little break and some sun. Wings whirred by right in front of my head folllowed by a second whir-by. Two doves had buzzed by and landed on the patio fence to join me in the sunshine.

  1. Great window view. And, if I am not mistaken, those are Inca doves, nice birds.
