A bird came down the walk,
He did not know I saw;
He bit an angleworm in halves
And ate the fellow, raw.
And then he drank a dew
From a convenient grass,
And then hopped sidewise to the wall
To let a beetle pass.
by Emily Dickinson
We hung this bluebird house on the tree over five years ago. So far, no bluebirds have been interested. But every year we have some kind of bird family living there. Several species have looked it over this year, trying to decide if it is suitable for their future family. Lately there has been a pair of titmice flying in and out of it, so I think that they are the takers for this season.
We always enjoy the birds every summer. I've noticed that the yellow finch are back. They are one of my favorites and I try to keep sunflower seed in the feeders for them. Our indoor cat also enjoys watching them from the window. He especially enjoys the hummingbirds as they zoom close to the window when they see him watching!
Hope you are all having a good day and that spring is 'springing' wherever you are.
