We spent another day at the cabin today and put the birdfeeders out just as the sun was rising. There were birds already visiting the deck wondering where the food was. We once again enjoyed the activity and antics of the birds as they flew back and forth from trees to feeders. And we were amazed at the record breaking 8 species that came in just the few hours that we were there. The list included the Stellar’s Jays from yesterday, Chickadees, Nuthatches, Pygmy Nuthatches, Juncos, a pair of Downy Woodpeckers, a Gray Jay, and an Evening Grosbeak. Luckily, my mom has a great bird book and years of experience identifying them. But my parents said they had never seen so many different birds all coming at the same time. I didn’t want to stop looking as I didn’t want to miss something new. When it was time to go and my dad went out to retrieve the feeders, the birds in the trees seemed to be scolding him. Hopefully they had their fill for the day anyways, and will find another source.
I Found God today again appreciating nature.
