Birds Of A Feather

This pair of Finches periodically appear at the bird feeder. Isn’t this a great sequence?

These images were made in just a minute or so one morning and I got a kick out of their body language and expressions.

Bird watching is one of the best hobbies because it costs no money and provides hours of entertainment. Personally, I just watch the birds at my feeders and look for them on hikes but you can devote as much time as you like.

There are plenty of field guides, websites and apps to help you get started. I have a book but also use a free phone app where I upload my own pictures for identification.

You also may be happy just watching them for their beauty and antics!

An Early Birthday Present

Scout received an early birthday present yesterday. I relocated a bird feeder outside his favorite window.

He barely moved all day.

This little feeder attracted several species throughout the day and, by dusk, Scout was so worn out from watching their comings and goings that he collapsed on the couch.

This clearly is going to be the best babysitter ever.

Birds Of A Feather

My yard continues to be a haven for the birds this year. I love having them but they don’t love my camera. A few let me take their pictures yesterday so enjoy this collection of pictures of my feathered friends.
