The other night, I looked out the kitchen window, and saw an indigo bunting in the driveway eating seed. That is the first time I have ever seen one in my yard, and only the second time I have ever seen one, period. They are the most beautiful blue color. (If you’ve never seen one, click here for a photo)
Unfortunately, by the time I ran to get my camera and made it outside, he was gone. So, no photo.
But, since I had my camera at the ready, I decided to walk around the yard a bit, and look who was in the front, gathering nesting material. Cedar waxwings are one of my favorite birds, (look how gorgeous!) they are, in fact, the bird I have tried the hardest to attract to my yard, planting a mulberry tree and elderberries with them in mind. I have spotted one or two on occasion, but never regularly.
This one clearly has some plans to stick around.
There were others as well, the mulberry tree has berries just now, so I think they were having a little feast. None of the pictures I managed to get were fabulous, but I don’t mind… just seeing them in my yard was gift enough.
I am a crazy cat lady and a crazy bird watcher.
These two things do not necessarily go together.
I am having another insanely busy week.
I seem to have a theme going here, with all the crazy.
But I have a smile on my face.
So, there’s that.
