Sunday wonders - E


E is for Essentials of life.  Humans and birds share the same basic needs.  Air...




without it the hummingbird would not only die but would also be unable to dazzle us with its flight.  The second essential is food...




 we don't have to feed the downy woodpecker for his survival but he seems to enjoy a suet treat now and then. Water is needed....




as is a roof over your head...




and clothing to wear.  Not all are as splendid as this Stellar jay's feathers but all are functional.



And, last comes love...




which gives everything else meaning.

What a lovely show. I need to get my bird feeders filled and buy some suet.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs is not just for the birds, is it?

Hip - Our feeders need filling, too. We're waiting til the bears are for sure sleeping.

Rudee, Mimi - the birds seemed to add an extra little zip to my challenge.

Great photos! We have a Downey Woodpecker, but I've never seen enough of him to photograph!
