The view from my desk


Working at my computer earlier today, I looked up to see white ibis balancing on the utility lines. They really don't look stable up there, but they made me smile.

The Australian pines behind offer a perching place to an osprey. I hear it calling to its mate frequently, but there's no nest.

Despite looking onto the street, I get a nice view from here.

Nice bird view from your window. If I got something like that, I would sit by the computer and occasionally see the "Wildlife" for relaxation.

Having a nice view does help when stuck doing inside tasks. I stare at an interior wall. You've inspired me to do some rearranging.

What a lovely view from your work station! Always nice to see nature while you work.

They do look a little uncomfortable sitting on those lines. Our osprey are busy at work creating or refreshing their nests in expectations of young'uns.

Thanks, folks. I am indeed blessed.

Thanks, Deb. I actually work from home. But my last job had a spectacular view over Biscayne Bay.

Woops,wrong bird, which is why I removed the comment! But what i wanted to say is that I am living in Florida too right now and one of life's aspects that I really enjoy here is the birds - just amazing!

Thanks, GG. You have a nice blog, too. I'm also a Brit and have lived here (Miami) for nearly 25 years. And Fairchild is my spiritual gardening home!
