Time Well Spent

Bird Watching and Waiting

I am still trying to get a photo of a redbird that has been visiting. These birds are really alert and know when you are close and don’t show their face if you are close. The will sit in a tree branch and just as soon as you leave they return.

We have to hide the bananas in the house and cover them with a towel. Still they find them and nibble under the towel. I never knew that birds had a sense of smell, but that is the only explanation for it.

I didn’t get the redbird, but I did get some nice photos of a blue one.
