Cats on Tuesday; Bird Watching

Cats on Tuesday I love watching birds.

Dragonheart bird watchingDragonheart bird watchingWe have a bird feeder in our backyard, and our neighbours on each side have bird feeders too, so I get to see a lot of birdies. They are so much fun to watch!

In our living room, the entire wall leading out to our Garten (yard) is covered, floor to ceiling, wall to wall, in windows, so I have a great view of the outdoors. I love sitting in front of the window and watching everything that is going on outside.

Often, when I see a birdie, I get very excited and I start chirping! My jaw moves up and down very quickly, and I make a chittering noise. My mom calls it my "birdie noise." Unfortunately, she hasn't been able to record it yet, because by the time she has the video camera ready, I've usually stopped. I haven't been able to identify any of the birds yet, as my humans are only familiar with Canadian species. In the future, we will try to get some photos of the birds to share with you

Hi Dragonheart! Oh I luv birdies too! My garden has birdhouses in it and they are full of baby birds who are always furrrry hungry and cry for worms all day long. I like to watch robins take a bath in our fountain.
I am furrry glad to just be best furrrrends with you of course. I would still like to come 4 a visit, if that is still alright...

You are a very nice model especially when you watch birdies ! I know this little noise you make while watching them. Lisa is a specialist for that and makes us laugh, she "talks" all the time.
BTW I have a surprise for you on my Kehole picture blog. I painted you for my exposition in October. Now your mum has to tell me if it really looks like you, because I don't know you in real and had to compose it from several pictures. Of course you can copy it, the word copyright I don't know, lol !

I get all excited when I see the birds, too, Drago. I'm not allowed to chase them, my companion growls at me if I look as if I'm going to.

I make that chittering noise too, it's just something we cats do, isn't it?

Have a good bird watching day, Drago.

Daisy said...

I love bird watching too. And I cackle at them all the time!

Luna said...

Hi Dragonheart ! I love birds watching too. Wow, you also made this bird-voice ?!?! I (Luna) make this voice when I ´m sitting in the window and see a bird outside.
But my sister Frieda try to catch them and sometimes she get one and "e a t" it....

DEBRA said...

We sat and watched birdies yesterday afternoon. They flew so close to us we could almost taste...errr...touch them.

Birdies? I haven't seen any in a while, MomBean needs to get some to come around the house so I can watch them!

I've got a weird question for you, since you live in Germany, does your meow sounds different than mine? (MomBean read somethin' about kitties around the word meowing differently and you know beans, they can't leave well enough alone...)

Caesar and Princess said...

Dragonheart, watching birdies is the best. They are so nutty and funny.

We hope you have a very nice and wonderful day today <3

Deana said...

You look so sweet watching the birdies. I too love watching mine watch the birds and the little chirping noises they make when they are excited. We adopted (rescued) a new lady this weekend and she has been climbing IN the tree and IN the feeder. She must learn that is a big no no.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh Dragonheart, you are hansum as always. Zippy makes a noyze like dat when she is watching birdies. And skwerrels and chipmonks. Sadie and I just bang our heads on da glass trying to catch dem.~Speedy

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

I chitter at birds too. They are mean though because they are always tormenting you through the window. Do you have any baby birds to watch? They are tasty looking!

Forty Paws said...

Awesome that you have such huge windows to look out. We all chitter when we see birds or squirrels.

Did you know that the US has Veteran's Day on November 11th? It's similar to the Canadian Remembrance Day, except it is for all Veterans who have served, whereas Memorial Day is for those who have died while serving.

Luf, Us

You are a lucky kitty to have such a great view.

Aloysius chitters at birds just like you do. It's the universal language of cats!

jcfloresinc said...

Hello, Dragonheart you look so cute sitting by the windows. Watching birds is fun. Tigger and I do it all the time. I hope one day your mom gets the sound you make on video and pictures, too. Have a nice day.

Mom Unplugged said...

If you ever came to visit us in Arizona, you and Nutmeg could practice your ornithology together. She chitters too!

Chairman Mao said...

I love watchin' birdies, too! And it sounds like you make a kinda little noise like what my sistur, Dorydoo, makes. She's a real chatterbox!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

You look lovely sitting by the windows, Dragonheart! And what nice, enormous windows you have, too.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Karen Jo said...

I think it's great that you have such large windows for bird watching. You look great sitting there.

Suzanne R said...

Dragonheart, you look like you are putting your heart and soul into watching those birdies! We know about that, too. There is nothing better -- it's like TV for cats!

TopChamp said...

I don't think Dixie is picky about what birds he thinks about chasing. I say 'thinks about' because he rarely gets off his bum to chase anything.

Good luck identifying them!

FelineFrisky said...

We love to watch birdies, too. We have a birdbath in front of out home. We sit in the windows and chirp at them, too.

Our Storm makes an interesting noise at the birds too. Almost like she's barking.

One-Eyed Jack said...

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

ooooh - I do that exact same chittering thing! Grr and Cocoa are pretty quiet when they're stalking the fev-vers, but I make lotsa noise about it.

Kuanyin said...

You'll have to video her, so we can see and hear! Happy COT!

Parker said...

I always chitter at the birds too! It's very fun!

Kimo & Sabi said...

Ooooh - birdwatching makes our teeth chatter!

Junior said...

I love birdies too Dragonheart! I have lots of trees to watch them in and I can hear one every morning while laying on my big bed with my Meowm. Sometimes that bird is too noisy and keeps Meowm and I awake. Meowm calls it a noisy pigeon.

Zoey and the furballs (the Zoo Crew) said...

We love the birdie watching noise and really hope that your Mommy gets it taped to share with us soon.

Marie the Defender said...

Wow! Your first picture (the left one) is beautiful, you look like one of those artsy cat sculptures!!

I like chirping at birds through the window too!

TorAa said...

Dragonheart, have you ever heard about Internet? Ask your Mom to look up the Birds there;)))

meeyauw said...

The first photo of you, with your back to the camera, is a classic of beauty and poise. It is just stunning!

The Crew said...

I think every cat makes the birdie sound. Mine goes like this in my throat: eh, eh, eh, eh and is sort of a cross between a click and a chatter. Whatever yours sounds like, I'm sure it means you find that particular birdie very interesting and would like to get him!!!

Michael - Lover of Amy said...

Pixel said to tell you that he too loves his feather toy on a fishing pole, but last night was all about curling up in a tupperware bowl, and tonight it was trying to stick more than his head in a ramekin.

On Michael's WW there's a pic of him playing with a cloth-covered ball toy too.

Salix Tree said...

My 3 cats all make that "I see a bird" noise too. Two of them like to creep up on the birds, but birds are too quick, and fly off. I think the birds are having fun being daring. My third cat can't see anymore, but she used to chitter at birds in her youth.
