Skinny Saturday - Birdsong

I was just thinking about how birds have been such an integral part of my life since I was a little girl. My grandfather always fed birds and we'd spend hours together looking out the window naming the birds that visited. He would take the bottom from large clay flowerpots and fill them with water for the birds to use for drinking and bathing. We'd laugh together at their antics as they did both and chase away any predators. I have also always lived with pet birds....canaries and budgies when I was a child and cockatiels and parrotlets as an adult...and still do. They are fascinating and I feel honoured to live among them. Birdsong is the theme for this week's Skinny Saturdays challenge.
