I am not sure if you know this or not, but I kind of really LOVE birds!!

I am positive I have made a few pages featuring birds before, but perhaps my real love for all things winged has not been that apparent!

Let’s sort that out – I LOVE BIRDS!!! All sorts of birds. I am coming back next time as a bird! My kids call me bird lady! LOL

So today, yes, this morning in fact, I had my very first ‘Snow White encounter’!

Most days I go for a walk, sometimes it is after work, so I go a different (quick) way. But today, I went my favourite way. There is a creek at the bottom of the hill and I like to walk down the hill and along the walking track along the creek. It’s about 1.8kms (just under a mile) to walk along the creek. (My whole walk is about 5kms or 2.6miles)

On my walks I see a myriad of creek dwellers. Some rabbits, but mostly birds. Magpies, Mud-Larks, Wrens, Plovers, Red Wattle Birds, Mynahs, Sparrows, Doves, and a duck or two every now and then! But today, my favourite “Welcome Swallows” were flying and swooping. It was quite early, so I guessed they were getting some breakfast. Then, my said encounter of Snow White comparisons happened!

As I was walking along the tree lined track, three swallows started circling around me. At first I thought it was a little strange, and I really noticed that it was three of them. (You know by now I love birds!!!) That is when I stopped dead in my tracks and got my phone out of my pocket and took some photos. Most of them are so small you can’t see the birds, but there is one that you can really see one of them on a full swoop. I was not concerned at all, in fact I was smiling and even giggling as they went around and around and around. It was almost surreal. I loved it!!!! They followed me for at least half of my walk and I have to say, I considered getting to the end of the walking track and turning around and going back just to see if they would do it again. It really was one of the loveliest moments ever!!!

    Love the page and the story! You are so lucky your walk takes you spots you can see such a variety of birds. I get excited when the robins chase the mourning doves out of the birdbath. Never realized how assertive and/or aggressive some species of birds are with each other. Just the other morning, I got to witness a hawk swooping in for ‘breakfast’ at the bird feeder. Bird watching, cameras, and digital scrapbooking go so well together.

    I love birds too, Kerrianne! How delightful for you!!! I wonder if these little beauties were trying to “lure” you away from a nesting area (???), but I still love that they circled around you and gave you your “Snow White” experience!

      In all honesty Deanna, I am with you on the fact they might have been ‘pushing me along’ rather than ‘loving me’ hahahaha, but I still thought it was delightfully cool!! 🙂
