Look What I Saw!

Lookit what I saw in my backyard! Can you see it, under the Gumbo-limbo tree? It's a wood stork!
Here is another picture. The wood stork is with his friend the white ibis. Do you see both of them? I think the birds like to hang out in the shade. On account of it is roasting hot here.
There he goes! He can fly real good for a wooden stork. Maybe just his bones are made of wood.
Harley wanted to see the birds, too. But he was too late. He is usually a day late and a dollar short for most things.

What fancy birds you have visiting you in Florida. It does look hot there, and I am glad you are both cooling off in the house.

Pablo said...

You have the BEST birds at your place!

the casbah kitten said...

You have wooden birds? Cool. He looks big too. . . you'd better be glad you're Inside and not Outside!!

Marg said...

So glad you showed us your wooden birds. Poor Harley. He would have been so excited to see that very large bird. That is one of Mom's favorite birds. Did it bring any babies?? Actually they are very rare.
Have a great day.

KC said...

O, Daisy, real live fevvers in yours yard.

If his bones are made of balsa wood or something he would be very light!

Mr. Pip said...

That's a very cool bird!! Poor Harley ...

Your pal, Pip

Cara n Crew said...

Mol! Poor Harley! You two have fantastic birds to watch. Wowza! So big. We've never heard of a wooden bird before...

-Pip, Smidgen, Minnie

Eric and Flynn said...

Poor Harley, you will have to tell him all about it.We have never seen wooden storks which is probably a good thing because if we tried to catch them, we might get splinters.

Sweet Praline said...

Does the wood stork bring wood babies? This is a good question for Harley to investigate.

Simba said...

You are so observant, Daisy. That wooden stork is nifty!

JD at I Do Things said...

Wow! I love that wooden bird. So cool!

Poor Harley. I hope you described the wooden bird real good for him.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Daisy, you have a lovely pond! Beautiful pictures of the fevver. Poor Harley, maybe next time?

BumbleVee said...

hahah... oh, poor Harley .... he'll have to go some to keep up with you Miss Daisy....

Cory said...

Jonesie is telling me that Wood Storks are the ones that deliver the volunteer baby saplings to our yard. Is that true or is she just pulling my paw? Can Harley investigate?

jenianddean said...

It stinks that Harley missed the bird show. You have such an interesting view. We usually just get squirrels.

Hannah and Lucy said...

You get some great birds in your backyard - they are big too - I don't think you'd be able to catch it.

i beati said...

-d ma said...

Pandafur said...

Ooo wudn't it be kewl to catch dem birdies an play wiv them? I bet you an Harley cud do it!

The Paw Relations said...

Wow! Those birds are BIG!

Poor Harley! Better luck next time!

Janet said...

Wow! You have very big birds there, Daisy! Our birds are teeny tiny and not nearly that exciting to watch. :)

Lin said...

WOW! What a big guy he is!! Does he make your teeth chatter, Daisy?? We have Bernice the Pigeon here, and that Hindenburg of a bird makes my kitties chatter away. I think they would like to eat her.

Forever Foster said...

You sure get some interesting visitors. Better luck next time, Harley :)

Dennis the Vizsla said...

"So if she weighs the same as a stork ... then ... she must be made of wood?"

Busby and Raymond said...

That stork is ginormous. It's amazing he can fly at all!

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

is that the stork that brings the babies?

smiles, auntie bee

Sarge Charlie said...

Tammy said...

Daisy! What a great bird for you to see. And your mommeh caught some great photos to share with us too! :)

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

They are such beautiful, magnificent birds! Too bad for Harley!

Puglette said...

cool birdies!! i hope that wood stork does not take any of your woods!! we don't get big birds in our yard because of the doggies. but there are lots of ducks and geese at the lake nearby. have fun with your new friends!
hugs,
puglette
:o)

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Daisy you are so lucky because you get such cool big birdies! We have a creek behind our house but the most interesting birdies we get are ducks. And we think you are probably right and the storks bones are the only wood part - the rest looked feathery to us.

And oh, poor Harley missing all the fun - but at least he didn't spoil your fun for a change!

Cat said...

Poor Harley missed all the excitement!

You guys hace a fantastic back yard!

DaisyDeadhead said...

Beautiful bird! (((Harley)))

Pricilla said...

They are very cool birds. We have herons here but not storks or ibis.
The publicist had black ibis when she lived in NJ

AFSS said...

We saw the wood stork!!! We don't have those in our pond, although we do have wood ducks.

Katnip Lounge said...

Daisy, you are soooo lucky to get big birdies like that in your yard! Did you chatter at him? The biggest birds we get are fat pigeons and we are sure that someday soon we'll see if they are made out of wood or birdy. If we're lucky enough to snag one, that is!
Poor Harley! Better luck next time.

Tybalt said...

What great pictures! Too bad Harley was too late to see. You made mommy giggle with that one, Daisy.

skdd said...

That's they bring the babies. Storks. Maybe your neighbors have new babies. :-)

Love,

Theresa

Junior and Orion said...

You get the best bird TV!!!!!!

StarSpry said...

What an awesome back yard! How fun to see those big birds all the time. Too bad Harley didn't get to see them too.

katnip_13 said...

LOLLOLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!! You've outdone yourself today with clever commentary -- thanks for a much needed laugh!

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

That bird standing there looked to be the size of a small child!
It's nice they find refuge in your yard, more entertaining for you two!

Jacqueline said...

Wow, you guys have really cool Kitty TV at your house!!...Happy day, sweeties...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki
PS...Thanks to your Mom for explaining dilute calico=yes, we consider that a good description of Mommy Cat :)

Grace said...

How could you ever get bored with the view from there? Probably always something going on...

Maureen said...

Aw, how cool is that! Poor Harley... ;)

You have a beautiful place to live.

The Island Cats said...

Wow! We've never seen such a big fevver like that!! We want to watch the TV show you're watching!

Pierro said...

so cool. I biggified the pictures.
I would have been going crazy if those birdies were in my yard... we only get bloo birds and yellow finches.
bonks to you and Harley. Good thing you got pictures for him to see!

Sheila Bennett said...

Daisy, you have a very nice backyard. Looks like a great place to sit and watch for birds and other fun things. Great picture of the stork flying over the pond.

Laila and Minchie said...

Harley, honey, you gots to learn to speed up if you don't want to miss all the excitement. We can imagine how hot and humid the hots and humids are down where you live!

"Lois Grebowski" said...

I'm usually a day late and three dollars short, so Harley shouldn't feel so bad.

I miss seeing the anhinga birds in SW Florida. they fascinate me. I think you'd like them too, Daisy. After they get all wet from swimming they stand with their wings out to dry themselves off.

Tammy said...

Boy Daisy! What a good eye you have...for seeing both of those big birdies! Chip would have LOVED to see those guys. On the other hand I think his sister (Tee-Tee) would have been scairted (is that how you spell it?).

ABBY said...

Now that's a fev-ver!

Noll's Nip said...

TK and Squashies said...

That is very cool Daisy! I think you are right about wooden bones.
We hopes Harley can sees your post so he can sees the wooden birdie too.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Wow! Cool you have a flying wooden stork in your yard!

Your Daily Cute said...

What a beautiful view you two have! And birdies, too! :)

Ayla and Iza, said...

OMC! We wanna bite that big birdie so much! We can jus imagine that tastey birdie meat...

Keisha said...

Wow! Lookit the burdees! :) I like burdees. We got tons of them by my house. I like the sandhill cranes, because their colors are pretty. We also have little herons, Canadian ducks, Muscovy ducks, little sparrows and sometimes wild parakeets. I wish I could fly! :)

Curly said...

Daisy, you have such a purrty view from your window! I enjoy birdwatching too, but there isn't anything like your stork and ibis around my house.
