"Use what talents you possess:
the woods would be very silent
if no birds sang there except those that sang best."
~ Henry Van Dyke
With apologies for the low quality photos, taken through the window with my simple "point and click" camera, I wanted to introduce you to the sweet visitors we have had lately at the farm. They are the first to have found the new feeder on the sycamore tree.
Allaboutbirds.org has this to say about the Black Capped Chickadee: "A bird almost universally considered “cute” thanks to its over-sized round head, tiny body, and curiosity about everything, including humans." Well, I agree to the word "cute," don't you?
Do you have bird feeders near your windows? Who visits most often? Which birds are your favorites? While we await the return of our spring flocks, the robins and other migratory birds, I will enjoy watching these little chickadees. I am hoping that sitting with a cup of tea and watching the bird feeder through the window isn't considered doing nothing!
Where ever you are, what ever the weather, I wish you contentment and something to look forward to!
