twitter, twitter


every morning as i fix my coffee i can hear the twitter, twitter of little birds on the bird feeder right outside my kitchen window. i have to stand on tippy toes and lean forward to see them but they are such an early morning delight! for several days i've tried to snap a photo of them. since the window faces east the sun has reflected off the camera and scared them off every time. but not today!! i waited until around noon when the sun was a bit higher in the sky and was able to snap this photo thru the screen.

it is amazing how much black oil sunflower seed all these little sparrows and purple finches can go thru in a few days' time! and, this bird feeder attracts a pair of doves almost every evening. they come to pick thru the leftover seed droppings on the ground under the feeder.

i love the sound of the twitter, twitter and the coo, coo of these birds!

I could sit and watch our birds all day...I too am amazed at how much little things like birds eat..My hubby always jokes and says he can't afford to feed the whole wilderness too..LOL...
