I have been watching the birds..

We worried so much about missing the birds at our old house..., but there was no need, I have been watching birds for the last week come in droves...  We now have six feeders up and I am having to fill them up everyday.

Norther Flicker

Downy Woodpecker

Busy little Nuthatch

I realize that I could quite easily, stop, do nothing but watch these little feathered wonders all day long..., what a blissful day that would be!

I have been slowing down for the last week, is it my age?  I ask myself..., but I think more than anything its the change in the seasons.  Today is Fall equinox..., so its official no more summer... With the recent changes in temperature, and general feel of all things outdoors,  I find myself wanting to go to bed sooner, get up later, and I feel hesitant to start the day...  

If I was a bear, I would be getting ready to hibernate...

How do you know all the names for these birds and flowers?

Gilly,

I love birds as well; I bet you did not know that people come from all over the world to Nome, Alaska to bird watch. I did not know this until I started researching Nome due to the fact that I will be moving there. I am so excited, as I am a true bird lover; I will have to post pictures of these beautiful feathered friends on my new blog...
