Getting to know my other neighbours


I think the most important quality in a birdwatcher is a willingness to stand quietly and see what comes. Our everyday lives obscure a truth about existence – that at the heart of everything there lies a stillness and a light.

Hey, Lovelies.

One of the best things about living in the treehouse is that my bedroom is all wide windows that look out over the forest. I’ve been spending a lot of time in bed, or in a chair looking out over the trees, and so I have begun to know my other neighbours rather well.

Of course, I am talking about the birds.

They have their favourite branches, their favourite routines, and I can now tell the residents from the visitors.

I spend endless hours watching them, and it gives me untold pleasure.

The trees are another wonderful group of companions, as I watch them change with the light, the weather, the seasons.

So much wonder, right in my backyard.

How about you? Are you a sky, tree and bird watcher too? I’d love to know.

Hugs, birdsong, cloud-shaped movies and the joy of old trees, Nicole xx

Hi! I'm Nicole Cody. I am a writer, psychic, metaphysical teacher and organic farmer. I love to read, cook, walk on the beach, dance in the rain and grow things. Sometimes, to entertain my cows, I dance in my gumboots. Gumboot dancing is very under-rated.

  1. I have woodpeckers in my front yard trees all the time. And just today there was a Mom and baby deer in my back yard eating from the bushes. It was amazing!!! They hang around here all the time.
