It’s been quite a while since I have just spent the afternoon watching the birds in the backyard. Jim was golfing so that’s how I decided to spend my time. Yesterday’s quiet time with the local songbirds was very fruitful. There’s a young female cardinal that’s been hanging around learning the ways of the world. The darn oriole keeps investigating the hummingbird feeder rather than feasting on the oranges I leave for them. There are several orioles out here and the males are constantly chasing seach other around. The hummingbirds are also feisty and hungry.
The male and female cardinal feeding together brought to mind my breakfast table. The female is chattering away and the male is staring off into space.
