“Birds were created to record everything. They were not designed just to be beautiful jewels in the sky, but to serve as the eyes of heaven.”

― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

It’s no secret that I love birds…

I could watch them all day

My work-from-home desk is setup right in front of the big window in the front room.

This is my view:

The view is a bit bigger than that, though.

Near the window is a hummingbird feeder and a new addition last night – a green window feeder made from recycled plastic.

I’m super excited about the new feeder that Mr. Bill “encouraged” when we visited “Nature Lover’s Nest” in Middlefield, OH.

It’s a most delightful store with just about anything a bird enthusiast would need and so much more.

I finally snapped pictures of the elusive Gray Catbird.

The Catbirds showed up when we put out the Oriole feeder – eats quickly and doesn’t stay around long. But they are beautiful. Their long tail is very expressive, and when I play the songs and calls from the Audubon app they really put on a show. I suspect this is a female though, because she doesn’t have the characteristic chestnut under her tail.

I hope you enjoyed this small glimpse into our happy front yard…

I think Bill loves birds just as much as I do!

For that I am grateful!
