One day earlier this week, the wind and rain had finally stopped, temperatures were in the 50’s and the sun was shining. Inside the house, our carpets were being cleaned so to stay out of the way I sat in the backyard to watch the birds.
I’d put up new feeders recently, with seeds and nuts, to help my little birds over the cold spell.
I could hear the nuthatches and chickadees talking.
“Sue, come look! No food left!”
I did, and there wasn’t. I quickly refilled the feeder and the nuthatch appeared first to eat.
The chickadees were next.
Then, more chatter.
“Hey, Sue! You forgot the suet!”
Indeed, I had.
“I’ll get right on it!”
The chickadees were grateful.
Today, we’re back to rain and cold and dreary skies.
But at least we had one day of spring this week.
