This week has been great for viewing, in particular, my bird friends. As I sat drinking my morning cup of coffee, I was visited by a beautiful little bird who fluttered back and forth in front of my patio door. She seemed to be saying, "Hello," and "How are you?". As I sat with a big smile on my face, my new friend decided to take a rest on a deck chair that sits facing my view. She gazed at me through the window and seemed to understand the hello that I softly spoke to her. My new friend abruptly left, just as fast as she arrived, and disappeared into the forest which frames our backyard.
We are also blessed to have many chickadees, a pair of blue jays, some woodpeckers and hummingbirds that reside nearby. Of course, we also have many more that I need to learn more about. I'd love to share my backyard friends with you so I'm determined to keep my camera in my pocket this Spring while I work in the garden. Here are some links to assist you in enjoying the nature in your yard. Enjoy!
