Nice spot for them, they can see in all directions.

Kind of Hitchcock's movie's mood...

Birdman said...

Your choice is a bit of a surprise today. What a neat vane too. Boys, let's head West!

Antonina said...

Amazing shot!

When you pull it in close Brattcat, you can see how they've got their feathers all plumped up to keep warm. They've got a great spot there although they should have huddled up closer to keep warmer. I have to agree with Birdman, I was expecting a purrrrrrrry, furry animal!!

I always liked the way birds decorate weathervanes, and this image is a perfect example.

Tanya said...

Not exactly birds on a wire, but they look pretty free!

Like a bird on the wire,
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.

I love how you always see a grouping of them, and rarely a singleton. Nice silhouettes! Greetings from Texas.

Love that!

Sharon said...

It looks like they have thier feathers puffed up to keep warm.

Jilly said...

...and what a great sign they have to perch on.

The weather vane should have been pointing south, with the birds wondering why they did not fly in that direction.

Lowell said...

LOL to Steffe! Go south, my birds, go south!

You surprised me as well with this non-kitty shot, but the details and color are just exquisite. All the cats at brattcat's will like this shot... miam-miam!

Bises,

Very cool shot. Peterborough? You get around.

I can´t help remember the Hitchcock film.

They've found a lovely perch to try to keep warm.

Sharon Creech said...

Such a nice shot - the vane and birds against that blue, blue sky. Beautiful.

slim said...

What, no kitty? I do like the setting for the birds.

An excellent shot for theme day!

Not many weathervanes left here. Nice to see one still up. I tend to see birds like these huddled on the peak of the roof. Excellent photo!
