When A Sparrow Falls
Occasionally we see a beautiful piece of email, here is one.
A female bluebird was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road, And the condition was soon fatal.
Her male mate brought her food and attended her with love and compassion.
He brought her food again, but was shocked to find her dead.
He tried to move her – a rarely seen effort.
Aware his mate was dead and would never come back to him Again, he cried out with adoring love . . . And stood beside her with sadness and sorrow.
You have just witnessed love and sorrow felt by God’s creatures.
The Bible says that God knows when a sparrow falls.
Imagine how much He cares for us!
I’ve never seen a bird shake water off like a dog does – wouldn’t want to get in the way of him when he’s got his eyes locked and his talons in the “load” position!
There are 3 sequences in this one video:
1st sequence he catches half a dozen fish in one strike.
2nd sequence he plunges talons into deep water right to the bottom to grab his prey.
3rd sequence he captures a big old fat fish that looks as if it weighs more than he does!
This is incredible to watch (best viewed in full screen mode)…enjoy
Oh! I don’t know about that. My budgerigar, Sweetie, still wolf whistles me.
On a side note, Budgies have been surviving very harsh inland conditions in Australia for over 5 million years. They are native to Australia, and in the wild they are green and yellow.
“Watch your snap” he warned the frog.
The large green frog pretended not to notice the fool.
Humph!! He thought ,what would a fool know about catching a blowfly?
In fact the fool knew many things, he was a keen observer of nature, but because he was a fool, he didn’t know how smart he was. He wasn’t smart with reading, writing, or arithmetic. He wasn’t smart about politics or religion. He saw the world differently from most people, because his heart was pure.
His world was filled with Mother Nature busily going about her business. He noticed all the small things that most don’t have time to observe. The way a raindrop will fall on a leaf and shimmer like a jewel, until it becomes too heavy, and drops off onto the ground below with a soft sigh.
He watched the brilliant orange and black lizards scurrying around foraging for food, unaware of the large black and white bird sitting quietly in the branch above, waiting for the tiny lizards to break cover.
The fool observed that life was a big food chain and there was always someone bigger, better, and brighter than you, whether you were man or beast. It didn’t matter how much you struggled to reach the top, in the end the life cycle reduced all to dust. The fool was quite a philosopher; but because he was a fool, no one was interested in his opinions.
The fool was happy with the small things in life, the laughter of a child, the smell of the rain on a hot road, and the exhilarating feel of water drops tickling his face. He loves to hear the beautiful chorus of birds in the mornings proclaiming a new day. He marvels at the way the sunrise majestically coats the world in its orange rays, and paints the clouds with purple and gold. He laughs at the little red- browed finch eating seed off the table. The bird looks comical as his legs keep doing the splits, while he tries to balance on the slippery rain-soaked surface. On a clear day he loves to find faces in the fluffy white clouds that float gently overhead.
The stench of the city, the hustle bustle of life reminds him of ants scurrying around. These things don’t interest the fool, he isn’t greedy.
People pity his vacant smile, his childish face, his ragged clothes but his life is a rich tapestry of colour, movement, and sound. So who then is the fool?
This is such a lovely story. It makes you aware how little we really know about our animal friends and their capacity for love and devotion. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
You have to watch this video it’s so lovely. Aren’t animals wonderful ?
This is a great video clip about an Osprey. I am not sure if it has been digitally altered or not but it is still terrific. I just wondered how they happened to have a camera underwater on the very fish that the Osprey took. Ok so I am cynical.
