We have birds!


All morning long a little female chickadee has been building her nest in our nesting box. She pops out of the box, goes about 10 ft away, drops to the ground, grabs some twigs, string, or other perfect nesting material, and pops back into the box. It has been SO cute watching her, and so exciting thinking that we may have baby birds in our nesting box this year!

Logan noticed the busy little thing and went outside to investigate. Toddlers are not known for their subtlety... so she noticed him too.

I had to move him from RIGHT under the bird house, as he squeaked and talked to the bird that was sitting, with her latest nesting load, in the tree above the birdhouse. I hope she comes back!

Some people have noticed the new music selections. I have always loved guitar soloists, and my older brother turned me on to Andy Mckee last weekend. I am in love. So that is one of the new artists. The other is Tommy Emmanuel. He is really amazing. Apparently, he is completely different in person than in the studio. lol... he is quite a character. But both are stunning artists and I was glad for the calm but up beat change of pace. I hope you enjoy as well.

Wow, west coast chickadees have different markings that our East coast ones. They are friendly little things, though, so I bet she will stick around.

Is that Michael Hedges playing on your page? Sounds like it. :)

Well now, I am not sure if it is a chickadee. But we have chickadees, bushtits, and juncos around here in that size. It would be neat if it was another type of little bird. We will see... I hope we will be seeing a lot of her!

Oh how fun. We have a large magpie nest outside our bedroom window. I love it.
