Harry and Sally back from holiday!

in Feathered Friendslast month (edited)

Been gone on a 4 month ship cruise methinks and so good to hear their familiar calls again.

I am trying something new here in the story with my homemade Gifs, so please don't laugh at my clumsy attempts. Mind you I will simply join you in the laughter, as I am known as a friendly chap that can certainly laugh at himself.

Gif 1, of Harry and Sally's landing.
Harry at the left said; "Hi, hi, Hivers, where is the food"?

Harry came up on our roof to have a look and he saw the new bucket with the food in it.

But here's a new one. He didn't fly down as usual, but instead decided to walk down on the roof.

Gif 2. Ah! Harry was peeping at me to check if our little cheeky dog Troy was with me.

So, Troy was not around and Harry popped down to fill his stomach.

Gif 3. Harry was done, but the cute squirrel decided not to wait any longer and he ran along the wall to come and fetch a nut.

But Lady Sally came and saw that the color of the water bucket was changed from blue to white, so she disdainfully sniffed and walked away.

What we have learned is that Egyptian Geese (Alopochen aegyptiaca) like to eat their food with water, as in the early days of our feeding them, they used to choke on the dry special bread that we fed them. So now we mix it with water in the bucket
We are so glad that they are back and now it will be all action again with Harry battling the other geese to reclaim his territory. So, I hope to get some shots of the fights to show our warrior Harry in action.
Oh! And Marian will replace the new bucket with the old blue one. Anything to keep the peace hahaha.

And That's All Friends!

Something to think about here!

Note: All photos and Gifs are my own and I hope that you will like this new effort. Need I say that it takes a long time to make the gifs with a terribly low IT signal and a powercut today.
Camera used was my old trusty Canon Powershot SX60HS.

We hope that you have enjoyed the pictures and thank you for visiting a post by @papilloncharity

Harry and Sally return you say, soon the babies will arrive perhaps you need a couple more buckets.

Playing with GIF's have fun, no matter which way we turn loading is slow from here but they all worked so congrats!


Shame, they don't have their babies here anymore Lady Joan.
Too many predators and cats here. There is a dam not far away and when they have the babies there, they take turns to come and eat here.

I am just glad that Gifs worked my friend, Maybe I must make their sizes smaller so that they will load faster.

Thank you for the wine and have a !BEER

Sorry, out of BEER, please retry later...

I didn't laugh and if you have heard something it wasn't me 😉

Actually, the GIFs are a nice idea, although to me Harry seems to say "hey Sally, where's the food?" in the first one 😁

Cheers with !BEER and !WINE

Hahaha, I think that I heard the snigger of an Austrian mountain goat 🤣

Maybe Harry whispered to Sally; "Sally, I wonder if that mountain goat is still giving our beloved Zac a hard time" 🤣

Cheers and thanks!

Hahaha, so I'm giving you a hard time? Well, I think you have to live with it :) LOL

d.buzz allows only 280 characters, that's good for my fingers ;)

Oh yeah, they call it suffering in silence 🤣

So, it sounds like Twitter? One photo and a few lines?

Cheers and thanks!

I have tried it with one photo only, but I think you can add more. I will try it soon again. But the 280 characters are not much to be honest, because I always try to add some more or less meaningfull words to my images ;)

Cheers and !BEER

Scary how "take away" the worls is becoming Hannes.
The reason why I don't chat on Twitter is that my short word library in my head is limited and if I have to type in a hurry without thinking I might be banned 🤣

Besides, one can only say love and kindness for a few times then people will become bored.
Scream murder and sex and one will be on top of the charts. Just the way that the popular media has conditioned the world.

Cheers and thanks!

Haha, I completely agree with you about your Twitter opinion, Zac, and Twitter is much too busy for me.

So, I make my post there, have a look through the other posts and reply to comments if there are any, and that's all.

Cheers and !BEER

Thank you and I do exactly the same in Twitter.
Since the Tsu days, post, answer comments, do a few upvotes and run away hahaha.
You know what I will say here 😉

Cheers and thanks!

Wonderful bunch of photos and gifs.

Thank you for the appreciation Lady Sally.
Have a glass of !WINE

The gifs are a wonderful addition to your post! I'm glad that Harry and Sally are back and it is so funny that they noticed that the bucket had been changed from last year. I will be looking forward to more Harry and Sally Adventures.

First off I want to apologize for only twittering the 2 birds challenge today milady.
I am all over the place with the powercuts and the low IT signals here.

Yes, we are delighted that Harry and Sally are back and the loud challenging calls as he watches the skies are sounding out again. Declaring that he is the owner of this property and no other birds or predators are allowed here hahaha.

The old bucket is back and they are now both eating here again. Amazing how the colors of a bucket can disturb them. I am a bit faulty in colors and Marian told me that the old bucket is not blue, but rather turquise whatever that means 🤣

You manage to get a lot accomplished under the circumstances! I'm always impressed.

Turquoise! Now wonder Sally wanted her old bucket back. That's so much more classy than white!

Thank you and Sally is a female. Harry was happy with the bucket.
What more can I say? hahaha.
