Office Birds
I love it when birds land on my windowsill here at work. They seem so entirely out of place, perched there precariously on the other side of the glass, just past my computer monitor and geek toys. I'm on the fourth floor, with windows that do not open, so I can do nothing to encourage them. Just hope that one will wander its way by. Our windows are reflective, which probably helps pique their interest. They can't see Big Scary Me, just a cute little bird image to admire.

A tiny little guy stopped by earlier this morning. Probably a sparrow-sort. He was so small that I could really only see his head. He looked at the glass, then chirped a couple times. He chirped! Talk about a strange sound to hear in an office. I could hear him through the glass, see his beak opening wide as he expressed himself, and it totally made my morning.

Then he flew away, and I had to go back to work...alas.

Current Mood: birdy
Current Music: chirpless for now

glad to see that you've got friendly wildlife to bring joy to your work a day world-

we get chipmunks and squirrls running around our window sills here at the Alumni house, affectionaltly called the log cabin (it is set back in the woods, with brown barn like vertical siding)... our office is on the first floor... and there is always lots of cute wildlife that scampers about to distract us from important work or LJ reading... ;-)
lately though... just about quitting time.. as the sun begins to start setting... we are inundated with a huge flock of crows desend on us and sit in the upper canopy of the trees... and they make a huge rackett of noise... and there are litterally thousands upon thousands of them... I'd dare say 10,000 might not be a wild guess-
kind of creepy... reminds me of that great Hitchcock movie!

Wow, you've got lots more wildlife! Too cool; I'm jealous. We also get flocks of birds swooping past the windows, which are fun to see...but they don't have trees to perch on nearby. I think they just like the swoop in the updraft between my building and the one across the parkinglot.
