to the birds
we spent the day, Sunday, watching birds.
heard a hummingbird whirring during the morning.
i saw an unidentified bluebird at the feeder while i was showering. (thus, alas, no picture.)
listened to maddie imitate chickadee calls.
watched for babies to see if we could spot our little fledgeling.
listened and watched dozens of The Regulars throughout the day.
watched the lesser goldfinches visit the pond...
for a bath.
watched the quail land at the garden gate and then walk aaaaall the way around the fence (instead of flying over) so they could visit the yummy lettuces.
i think they were eating our pea shoots, too....
watched sparrows take a dust bath in the sandpit.
and saw a verra bright and cheery fellow visit the hummingbird feeder.
that was most of our day.
' sides freeing the grapes (from their rose and creeper chaos)
and shining up the fairy and butterfly garden.
all worthwhile causes,
how grows your world?
