We have a nice front porch that gets morning sun. JP and I really enjoy the evenings there because it's usually cool and our view is wonderful with the hills across the road. The birds love it in the morning, they will come just to sit there and soak up the sun. This blue bird just decided to lay down on it's side and take a nap. This is not a sick bird, I saw it fly away to the nesting box seconds after this photo was taken. Maybe it's the mom and this is her little get away from the kids.
That picture was taken in 2008. This morning, after JP went to work, as I walked in the den I saw it again!! I didn't get another picture because I wanted to see if it was ill or just resting. What is the deal? Have you ever seen a bird lay down on it's back or side like that? Should I make some tiny pillows and Velcro them to the porch in intervals so everyone is comfortable? My word, I don't want to be a bad hostess!!
