Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries

Today I present a series of ‘carefree and couldn’t careless about boundaries‘ birds!! They positively spit in the face of boundaries!!

Pippa Pippet fluffed herself up and declared that she gave not a jot about the sharp and nasty barbed wire boundary!

"I care so little I will use it as a primping and preening post!"

“I care so little I will use it as a primping and preening post!” she said whilst primping and preening!

 

Pippelle Pippet watched and learned how to behave like a proper pippet!

"So I treat this wire boundary with disdain then!" said Pippelle Pippet to whoever would listen!

Jeremiah Jackdaw knew this was the perfect place to have a photo taken whilst showing off his beautiful black feathers. He also treated barbed wire boundaries with utter disregard!

Bird on a Wire!

Whilst in Northern Ireland walking to the Giant’s Causeway, which our B&B hostess had promised us was a 2 hour walk but actually took 4 hours, we saw some beautiful views….

….and heard some wonderful birdsong. It sounded to me like a skylark but when I saw the bird responsible, he seemed a little small!

Here he is….

"Hello!" said Merryweather, "They look a bit hot….someone should tell them that they still have another 3 hours to go yet!!"

“Hello!” said Merryweather, “They look a bit hot those two over there….someone should tell them that they still have another 3 hours to go yet!!”

"Hold up….what's this post called….'Bird on a Wire'??? Gimme a moment!" tweeted Merryweather amiably!

“Hold up….what’s this post called….’Bird on a Wire’??? Gimme a moment!” tweeted Merryweather amiably!

And with that Merryweather flew off!

Moments later we spotted Merryweather once more fulfilling the name of this post!

"Might as well have a preen while I wait!" said Merryweather. "wonder if they know what sort of bird I am yet!"

“Might as well have a preen while I wait!” said Merryweather. “wonder if they know what sort of bird I am yet!”

I do know what you are…YOU, my dear Merryweather, are a Meadow Pippit!
