Le bachelor: hour number 24 and five Friday favorites, birds!
Lynda's five Friday favorites game is BIRDS this week. Man, do I love birds and we have so many. There is a river and a large section of woods behind our house so we get a zillion new birds every week, passing through or living here.
When we lived in New Hampshire they told you on the radio to stop feeding birds on April 1, otherwise bears would become a nuisance. I feed birds year round now, and all winter long we have had so many cardinals! It is so cold and grey for half the year, do you know how much I love my cardinal families? You will see the males these days getting a sunflower seed and passing it to his missus, tres sweet! Plus lately we have flocks of goldfinches, pictured here with that little cretin the chipmunk who bedevils me all year long (I think one of his houses is in MY HOUSE). We also have a series of 4 wooden birdhouses out there, occupied by one wren family and maybe some others on the other side of the yard, plus, for the sake of color I like blue jays (crabby birds, though) and all the orange robins. So much color in summer!
Penny and I have been hiking. There were many fat woodchucks to bark at.
