Mixed Feathers - May 23, 2007

The Turkey Buzzard spreads it's wings to soar this windy morning at the park. His gliding was interrupted by an angry blackbird diving at him. There are many young birds leaving their nests for the first attempt to fly. Predator birds and cats are the enemies of the young. The vulture has a beautiful eagle like wingspan.

1 Th 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
1 Th 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
1 Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
1 Th 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
1 Th 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
1 Th 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
1 Th 5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
1 Th 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
1 Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

A female Mallard duck fans her tail to parachute in for a landing. The water surface is rippled by the wind. There were many birds in flight this morning. Some were courting, but all were active in the wind.

Psa 104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.Psa 104:2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:Psa 104:3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:Psa 104:4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:Psa 104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.Psa 104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.Psa 104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.

This is a hybrid mallard, with different coloring from interbreeding with domestic ducks. The female mallards are often seen with other types of domestic ducks. The wing is a teal color and the head has more brown color.

1 Cor 15:39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

The male mallard has it's distinctive coloring. Purple wing colors and green to violet head, depending on the sun angle. It has the same white neck stripe as the hybrid. Birds may vary, due to interbreeding within like species. They do not evolve. God created them as ducks.

Gen 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

The young Canadian geese are escorted by a big domestic gray goose; a police escort? The wild and the tame are friendlier when there are young ones to fuss over. We all like babies, no matter whose they are.

1 Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
1 Th 5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
1 Th 5:11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
1 Th 5:12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
1 Th 5:13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
