Another perfect day. Cool, comfortable, sunny. Not a hint of rain. Well, okay, that is I admit, a flaw because we really need rain … but it’s a holiday weekend so perfect weather doesn’t include rain no matter how much we really need it. These days, when I get up in the morning and come into the kitchen, the deck is full of birds.
There was a cardinal and a goldfinch on one feeder and just the color combination was enough to make me happy. There were nuthatches darting in and out, Carolina wrens perching on the rail and a few squirrels poking their little heads over the edge of the deck. They fly around, each trying to protect his o her place on the feeder. We must have the best food in town.
I didn’t get the pictures I wanted because they all flew away by the time I picked up my camera. This is more typical than not. Even though I know longer believe that it’s a personal issue, that is, the birds are not flying away because it’s me. But they are constantly in motion.
