Birdie Spotting on Thursday in the Garden

Birdie Spotting in the garden is probably my favourite hobby, to be honest my ONLY hobby. I do like batting woolly things about the house too, but this isn't serious enough for what I class as a hobby. I like eating whatever I can find, but I believe this is a natural instinct and not a hobby either. I have never been allowed to catch a birdie on account of Mrs H (hawk eye) shadowing me, but I am working on it.

... this is me conducting a bit of spotting

Later, I climbed the tree so I was on hand if a birdie perched in it (craftily, I chose the tree with the fat ball in it so I could lick it while I waited).
Darcy loves birdie spotting too, but he also likes frogging.

He is particularly good playing the 'waiting game'

.. and knows unusual places to look.


  1. Do you chatter when you hunt birdies? You both look so beautiful in the garden I think the birds should just fly right up to you!

  2. Wow, you two really have your hunting skills down. Keep them sharp because you never know!

  3. My goodness you two are very busy bird hunting. Looks like you are doing a great job. And you are great looking cats too. This is our first visit here and we really like your blog. Have a great day.

  4. Wow those are both great hobbies - but I bet those birdies new you were in the tree, so they didn't go in it. Because they have to know you will catch them if they do!

  5. Fab photos today. We "chatter" when we spot birdies and love to watch them.

  7. You are brave and talented hunters!! ... and tree climbers to boot! Very impressive.
