Skywatch Friday: A Fast Talker from the Sky

This talkative feathered dude had a lot to say on SaturdayIMG 0188
when we were walking along this road at Topsmead.
IMG 0190
He was still talking and taking to the air and talking and taking to the air on Tuesday. He found a girl and then he played hard to get--and seemed to lose the game. He'll learn!

What a handsome dude. Sometimes, a gal wants the strong, silent type! Lovely perspective on the second shot!

Susan said...

'Hard to get' never worked on me either LOL. What a wonderful shot of that fellow! And I would love to walk down that lane, on such a day.

Sandi McBride said...

What a lovely country road.

Lin said...

fun post and story about the bird's possible courting-everything has a story.

Geraldine said...

A handsome dude indeed. I especially liked the country road pic. Took me back to my childhood on the Prairies, driving out to the golf course with my dad. Lovely Sandy!!!

Hugs, G

pretty bird

Mojo said...

I think one of his relatives must be hanging out in the tree outside my office building. Loud?? Nah... not much.

But isn't it amazing how your big talker got tongue tied by a lady?

If you ever figure out a way to keep that from happening, would you clue me in? 'Cause the same thing happens to me all.the.time!

tipper said...

Wonder what he was saying : )

Carver said...

Wonderful shots Sandy. I can hear the bird talking by looking at your photograph. Neat when that happens.

Guy D said...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Gotta love a bird that wants to stop to chat long enough for you to take a photo instead of flying away!

Sanna said...

I love birds. Nice photos. =)

Dewdrop said...

I absolutely love the pathway! Great shots!

bowledover said...

Lovely capture Sandy, bird song is so good to listen to.

Wouldn't I love to be walking there! Don't you just love the sound of a bobolink?

Photo Cache said...

beautiful shot. I love the second one a lot.

Sandy, I still get locked out by the skywatch main page mr linky.

Martha Z said...

Birds do sometimes have a lot to say. Yesterday they started in my yard at 4:30 AM and I did not appreciate it. I still encourage them, though with food and nest boxes.

I need to get to that road as soon as possible - it looks long enough for me to loose a pound or two walking on it. Thank you for that view!

Sylvia K said...

Fantastic shot of the bird! I love him! And that road looks like such a gorgeous, peaceful place to walk!

Have a great weekend, Sandy!

A Lady's Life said...

Wonder Turquette said...

A beautiful road perfectly photographed. I like very much the V and Λ forms you created on this shot. I suppose and hope this little bird had a beautiful voice :-)

Oz Girl said...

That's a wonderful shot you captured of the bird, and what a beautiful walking path. Lovely SkyWatch Friday photos... and thanks for stopping by my blog too! :)

Handsome dude! If I were a lady bird I know I'd be listening to his sweet talk.

ChrisC and JonJ said...

Pam said...

The little bird knew is way a sky watch kind of day... That's why he posed for you:)

Paul said...

Ebie said...

This post put a smile on my face. Lesson learned: never play hard to get. Kidding aside, I love the second shot, beautiful angle.

Jim said...

He's a 'pretty bird.' Are you so sure he wanted to lose?
You sure did find a nice quite place for walking. I like place like these.
Happy Sky Watching,
..

Carol said...

Great bird shot...and that second shot is beautiful...love the parallel perspective...

Deborah Godin said...

Someone needs to explain to him about the birds and the bees...

terri said...

Typical male, isn't he? He is a handsome guy though.

fishing guy said...

Sandy: Neat SWF captures bith the bird and the lane.

Deb said...

Hi Sandy ~ Long time no see but my spring break is officially over and I am happy to be back in the blogosphere. I love your photgraphy and your words which give even more insight. The picture of the dirt road is perfect - my eye is drawn right to the center and I keep looking to see what lies ahead. Take care.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

What a perfect, clear photograph of the bird. Plus the road makes me itch to walk, run, ride, drive down it to see what is at the end.

Denise said...

Great photos, love the bird up in the tree. Do you know what that is? Your tree lined dirt road is also something to behold. He's very handsome.

Pietro said...

Excellent pictures, Sandy! I so much like the first one with the bird.

Kind of nice to have talkative company along that road to the sky. Great captures.

Nice catch of the bird! But I prefer the road less traveled with sky above!

Lara said...

get zapped said...

Wow, I love the bird photo, so gorgeous. But, the road image is so summer! I could take off with my rucksack to walk and walk....

Happy Friday!!

Pietro said...

Many thanks for your information about Sky Watch, Sandy. I've gone to skyley in the afternoon and it's all right now! However, I'll try with pleasure Google Chrome (I must download it) which, as you say, must be really very good.

MaineBirder said...

Stunning! I love the first photo, looks like a Bobolink.

storyteller's other blog said...

Both are BEAUTIFUL photos ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Tammie Lee said...

Wonderful post Sandy. Something about a road in a beautiful scene that draws most hearts down it's path, including mine.
