Gone to the Birds!
Which means? I started on the 13 guest blogs and interviews for the Silence of the Wolf blog tour in March. Before long, it will be time to turn them in. (5 down, 8 to go) I also read 4 of the 8 Rita books I needed to judge and they are due in March. So it all takes time.
But… I had to take a break, so see what I did on my break?
I took pictures! I read about another author who had bird feeders out and so she got a new camera and took some fun pictures of the birds and squirrels, and I thought how cool! And another friend tells me how she’s always refilling her bird feeders in snow-buried Minnesota, so I thought I would get some bird feeders too. Only nothing’s feeding at them. I realize from this I’m rather impatient. LOL
Still, the winds were so high, they scattered finch seed from the feeder on the patio, and I had white crowned sparrows feeding. And my male cardinal came down also.
The female cardinal usually hides, but this evening, she was out with the male, and they were dying to come down and eat some of the sunflower and other seeds I put out for them today. Here is the cardinal in a pear tree.
And here is the female. He joined her when I came out to take a picture of them, but I missed capturing them together.
So do you have feeders out and if so, what kinds of birds are you getting?
