cuddle up ..... by Ron Co by

on a chilly morning when the wind blows straight through

The Superb Blue Fairy Wrens are family birds, always together, searching for food, cuddling ….. very close.

This family stays close by, seems to consider the log-house its territory, preferring it to the forest that surrounds it. I think its the same family that was here when we arrived five years ago. Perhaps they consider us a deterrent to the birds of prey that hover over the forest.

It’s snowing on the mountain at the moment and these little balls of feathers are out there, completely unperturbed it seems by the cold while indoors we are trying to keep warm with two wood fires going.

I write stories. Sometimes I take photos.

    It’s funny how they puff themselves up to stay warmer. They are so sweet! Have such a cheerful chirrup, cheep , cheep,cheep. We have similar ones here, but not the true Blue Fairy Wrens. Lucky you!

  • The wrens and the robins seem most at ease close to the house. Lovely to watch while I’m at the kitchen sink :)
