Feed them and they will come

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey
I love birds of all kinds, and we certainly have many different varieties that frequent our yard and woods surrounding the house. One of my all-time favorites is the Goldfinch. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but their little chirpy peeps are soothing to the ears. I didn’t even know we had them around. I didn’t see them last year. Since the bears have not been around I thought it was safe to hang a finch feeder on the back deck and see what happened. Filled to the brim with tempting thistle seed, it didn’t take long to attract an audience.

I heard them before I actually saw them. I looked out and could see them sitting in the trees like bright yellow ornaments.

Soon they decided it was safe to come and get something to eat.

Yesterday morning I looked out and saw a bright blue bird, and on further inspection saw that it was an Indigo Bunting! Gorgeous little blue bird! It was dark and dreary, so I couldn’t get a good pic of him. But, I happen to have a photo that I took of one at our cabin in Colorado, so I’ll share that one instead. Same bird; different location. They are rare in Colorado, but not here. I hope to see him again.

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved once again, this time to North Carolina. Here I write about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
