A Season of Change

The green is turning gold and brown, the wild grass seeds are a very few and the wind has a bite to it. My body is not ready for winter chill and blast of wind but I fear it is upon us!

This morning while fixing breakfast I looked out the kitchen window and saw a beautiful sight.

The backyard, where usually a hammock is swinging in the breeze, the ground was covered with little birds of all makes and sizes!! This is my winter bird feeding station and from the looks of it I really need to add more feeders.   I filled and hung the feeders last week and have seen titmouse, sparrows, yellow finches, red headed wrens, cardinals, Carolina finches and so many more breeds of small birds.  There’s also doves, bluejays, red-headed woodpeckers, Downy woodpeckers and more.  BUT, this morning the ground was ever so active with small birds.  I love them!

I love watching the birds and they will make my winter just a bit easier to contend with!
