Breakfast

I was sitting at the kitchen table this morning having my breakfast and watching the birds go about their business.  They were just humble birds; robins, starlings and sparrows all trying to find their own breakfast.  Suddenly there was a grand flurry of wings as they took to the sky separately and severally to seek trees and bushes.  That could only mean one thing....a hunter in the sky.  There it was, flying low under rain laden clouds, sweeping, circling, a black shape with a tremendous wing span spelling death to small creatures on the ground.  In seconds there was not a bird in sight.  The sky was empty of all but the hunter.  Well, we all want our breakfast.

  1. Fortunately, unlike the bird of prey, I don't have to hunt for my own food. I can pretend my meat is manufactured and that no animal is hurt (or even scared away from your window) in its production.

    1. Something has to die for everyone to eat......the robin takes the worm, the hunter takes the robin, I take down bigger game...cow/pig/chicken/fish....it's sad but it's the circle of life.

  2. It takes a skilled hunter to grab one of those song birds.

  3. I have seen this happen, too. It's a sobering moment. I expect it's also frustrating for the bird of prey, to have every morsel disappear so reliably.

    1. What sharp eyes they must have to find breakfast from so far up.

  4. Which made me think of a childhood game. 'What's the time Mr Wolf?' Mostly the wolf would give a time, but when he/she said DINNERTIME we all ran.

  5. Elephant's Child brings back memories. That was a favourite school yard game with anyone under grade five. Older kids decided they were above that childish nonsense, they kept their squeals for whichever boy was deemed the most handsome that week.

  7. It is so relaxing to watch the birds ... and yes, we all feed on something!

    I can remember playing 'What's The Time Mr Wolf' a great game and still enjoyed by many as they grow up.

    All the best Jan
