For the birds!
Another hot and humid day in New England. This summer has been for the birds...literally and figuratively. Since we installed our new bird bath, our tiny back yard is like a spa for feathered friends. I find myself filling the bird bath many times a day.
Our bird feeder also requires constant filling as the mother birds bring the babies to the deck rail and entice them to fly to the feeder. Sometimes they feed them as they squawk on the deck with their little mouths wide open waiting for seeds. They are so cute!
Then there are the little wooden bird houses that are sold in craft stores for around a dollar. I have been painting them and decorating them with art, paper, ribbons and other embellishments. They are totally addictive!
Of course, this has been the year of seeing other birds such as Great Blue Herons, ospreys, at the shore, orioles in the back yard, turkeys waddling down country roads, and swans in abundance.
Enjoy your day. Maybe you will see some birds in your travels. Have a good weekend, too.
