“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.
And a new smaller baby Chippy:
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!
