In an effort to make up for a delayed spring, Mother Nature has sent an “I’m Sorry” note in the form of colorful birds. In a rare still moment, I gazed into our brown back yard and watched the performance at the bird feeders. Swooping, cawing, and nervously looking about, brightly feathered birds gave their bawdy dance to an appreciative audience of one…me.
I saw Blue Jays, Goldfinches, Chickadees, Red-winged black birds, a Cardinal pair, two species of Woodpeckers, a Robin, and a House Wren. Yet to make their appearance are the Hummingbirds, Orioles, and Rose-Breasted Grosbeak. It was glorious, and it was the best part of my day.
