WEDNESDAY’S BIRDS – Marilyn Armstrong

We’ve got funeral in Boston today and Garry needs to speak. This was not only one of his colleagues but a friend to both of us. I will miss Tom Ellis. We will both miss him very much.

This also means that we have to be there early and probably won’t be back until late. And considering Boston traffic, it might be even later than I think. It’s one of the reasons we so rarely go into Boston … but this is one we cannot miss.

So enjoy the birds. They are beautiful and they remind us of peace.

  1. Aren’t they gorgeous!
    I had a theory when I was a kid: when I finally understood bird watching that would mean I was old.
    i don’t feel that old, but I understand bird watching now. But I guess 70 would be old to a kid.


  2. I’m sorry for your loss, Marilyn and Garry, and I hope the funeral has gone as well as these things can. I’m sure Garry will have delivered an eloquent and fitting elegy. Thinking of you both, and the birds do bring peace. Perfect peace.


  3. What a cheerful and joyful gift you leave us Marilyn. I hope very much that this funeral is turning out everything the great man deserves and that Boston traffic is not getting the better of you. Condolences to both of you, it’s terrifying to lose so many friends in an ever shorter period of time. But it’s also ‘life’ as it is.


    • I’m always surprised too. It depends on which of the birds is a bully. These bunch aren’t. ALL the finches get along together as well as the chickadees and the titmouses and nuthatches. They are all intimidated by the large woodpeckers but they don’t mind the cowbirds which are big but peaceable. Also the doves are very passive and friendly. They all get pissed off at the squirrels though πŸ˜€
