A season for everything, especially bird paparazzi




If I were a more methodical observer, I could produce for you a long, well-documented and specifically annotated list of the birds we have been entertaining here at home during the last couple of months.

But I’m not, so let’s just say this winter birds of all colors, sizes and feathers have been flocking together in great numbers to the feeders in our yard. Some of them show up on such a regular basis, I’m starting to consider them house pets. I admit I look forward to their daily visits.

It is likely that most of the birds I see as I look out my window from the kitchen table where I work are regulars. I certainly would hate to be accused of stereotyping, but most of these daily visitors are so similar as to be indistinguishable from one another, at least to me.
