Lost And Alone At The Wild Bird Cafe Now Has A Home! by 

Two years ago I set up my Wild Bird Cafe out side my studio window.
I have captured wonderful photography through this window of the desert wild birds. You can find these captures scattered through my portfolio.

Anyway, much to my surprise I glanced over to the window yesterday and there was this lovely little bird just sitting there looking lost and lonely.
After doing some research I found out it is a Love Bird and clearly it was someone’s pet “on the fly” as they say.
Any and all are welcome at the Cafe… but I think this little one is used to more of a permanent home setup.
I happened to have a bird cage in storage so I hung it out by the Cafe in hopes he/she will go in…
I am so happy he at least found the Cafe and now has unlimited food and water and maybe many new friends!
Fingers crossed that he takes my offer!

UP DATE!!!… He took my offer and is now part of our family!

Thanks for viewing my photography.

I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.
Thanks for viewing my work

    Such a sweet story and capture of this lovely little fellow! Hope he soon joins you in your home!

  • Me too Angie…he comes back every morning and stays the day but not even interested in the cage…so we’ll see!

    Aww … Poor little lovey! Lucky guy to find Susan’s sanctuary!
    A beautiful capture.

  • Thanks Arla… don’t know how he will fare when the heat sets in much less if he is still around this next winter…but for now he comes every morning and is here for most of the day and camps at night (I Think) in the pine trees at the entrance to our property. Wish he would check out the cage but no interest as of yet. Thanks for your comment neighbor.

    Awww, I hope it takes up your offer and finds another Love Bird mate, too. They love company of their own kind. I’m so glad it found your wild bird café. Fingers are crossed.

  • Thanks Frannie… he/she is quite the talker and is very vocal and pushy with the sparrows and wrens and it cracks me up when the big Mourning Doves and chipmunks are all eating… it gets quite noisy! …But each day he is here he/she seems to be starting to fit in. I would be going nuts if it had been my bird and it got out… nature and the universe sends us things for a reason…for now I am just glad he found this place and is getting used to being part of the gang.

    I hope he/she does take up your offer Susan. Very fine photo catch.

  • Thanks Jim…he finally did go into the cage and stayed for about two hours and then flew out… just thought I’d leave the cage there and someday will go out, close the door and bring him inside. (;0)

    How wonderful that you have a “gang” for it to belong to. So wonderful to read your response, Susan.

  • LOL…well he has finally found the cage and lounged for about two hours and then flew out. I am just going to leave the cage out there with the door open and someday I will go out, close the door and bring him in. Thanks Frannie.

    I LOVE these shots, Susan! And this one is another classic!! WELL CAPTURED!

    ALSO – you are an ANGEL on this earth. How many dogs have found you out here in the desert after being abandoned by their arsehole owners dumped them? Now the escaped birds have found you! I hope this little guy escaped and wasn’t abandoned. If someone let their domestic birds go to live or die in the wild, it would break my heart . . .

    People made a pact with their animals, especially dogs. So far as I have ever heard, the animals only break that pact because of humans! People have betrayed that pact for centuries! SAD!

  • Oh lord Ron if you only knew how many animals we have rescued over the years, especially the 17 plus years we ranched in Colorado. 7 dogs at one time, 6 barn cats, 2 abandonded turkeys, an African Leopard, and horses the people we bought the ranch from just left. The stories I could tell…the list goes on.
    Thanks my friend for your kind words on my Heavenly Statis in your eyes…it gave me a smile.

    He knows he has it good…..your energy will win his trust

  • Thank you MONBOTF!!! He did finally go in the cage, hung for about 2 hours, took a swing in the bird swing… but then flew out. Will just leave the cage there with the door open until such time that the time is right to bring him in… who knows maybe this little guy was supposed to have an adventure…it’s just a good thing he found the cafe! LOL!

    I used to be a Veterinary Technician and could tell you stories of abuse and neglect that would curl your hair! My friend and I had a reputation for rescuing neglected dogs and finding them good homes. One of the doctors I worked for would donate his time and expertise, not to mention the cage-space and the food, etc., until we could find the homes. It’s an almost never-ending problem and the world needs people like you and the great folks at The Gentle Barn in Santa Clarita to be there for creatures who need the help.
