Enjoying the winter scenery, and I am doing OK.
Last week I mentioned to my husband that I haven't noticed any Cardinals around the bird feeders. This is the time of year when so many birds visit us and our seed bill usually doubles. Then it snowed.
I took the picture on my header from inside my home with a zoom lens. When I saw all the bird activity outside, I quickly grabbed my camera and started clicking. I was not sure what I was taking as there was so much movement going on in the trees and around the feeders. After transferring them to my computer, I was surprised and delighted to see all the beautiful Cardinals (counted 14 on the above picture). Here are some other birds-eye views of my backyard on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song
"I realized that if I had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes"
Then there was this big guy sitting in the tree overlooking the feeding frenzy. Not as colorful as the regal Cardinal, but definitely worth a picture.
I leave you with my favorite Chinese proverbs about birds.
"You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair."
It is always a good day when you can wake up surrounded by the splendors of nature.
