Woodstock’s New Visit and Nest

“Make me hear joy and gladness,…”(Psalms 51:8a NKJV)

I am sure by now most of the readers here know I am a friend of Woodstock cartoons. A few days ago, he showed up in Heathcliff’s bird bath. [I follow just 5 cartoons via email from ArcaMax.com], and today, Woodstock seems to have been shopping. Maybe he was out shopping the day he landed at Garfield’s.

The first cartoon reminds me of how excited we birdwatchers become when a bird shows up in an area that is not its normal range. A few years back, 2014, here in Florida, many were reporting the Snowy Owl. Birds of the Bible – Snowy Owl In Florida.

But today’s order for Woodstock really tickled me:

Woodstock’s New Nest

That poor bird has problems with nest, as has been shown before. Woodstock’s High-rise Nest. Have you ever seen a nest that was in need of repairs or better yet, replacement? The Weavers trying to make nest that can be quite entertaining.

The thought of Woodstock ordering a ready made nest is funny. Maybe he received that package from Amazon, or Fed EX. Not sure where he found one, it makes for a joyful laugh. We have enough bad news in this world. I trust you also take time to chuckle now and then.

Our Salvation in the Lord does give us joy. He lets us enjoy “clean” fun.

“Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!” (Psalms 32:11 NKJV)

  1. How amazing that the Weavers can weave so artfully with just a beak, and wow that Tanager is so beautiful Lee. With the continuing drought and hot weather here, we have seen several bird species moving to the coast from inland to escape the heat and find water. It is a real buzz when you get to see them, as you do not ever expect to see them this side of the ranges, so I can understand with the Snowy Owl as you guys had a colder and long er winter then normal, as we have had hottest driest summer.
