This Weather's for the Birds
Every year at about this time my patience with ol' man Winter runs thin. I get tired of the cold days and chillier nights. I long for warmer days, more sunshine, and time to dig in the garden soil. Thank God for the birds. They brighten our days all year long, but in the dead of winter they're out there in the garden and visiting the bird feeders we keep filled with their favorite foods.
Here's to the birds who visit our gardens and bird feeders all year long. They're willing to let me get close enough to take lots of bird photographs and videos. They brighten up dreary days, and in the worst of weather - cold, snowy sleet or rainy days - they're chirping, and hopping about, and stopping by for a snack and a pose.
