The birds are really busy. Even with the weather warming up a bit, I have so much color at my feeders. I just put out a woodpecker block, several new suet cakes and sunflower seeds.
The American Goldfinches have for their color back and are so classy. They are proud of their color. Two Cardinals come early in the morning and late in the evening. They enjoy the sunflower seeds.
I have also had a wren show up here at the house. I am sure they have also shown up on the trails. I already had two bluebird eggs and something removed them from the nest. Yes, I imagine it was a wren.
I know sometimes it’s hard to let your heart be light during times like these, but birdwatching is quite relaxing and will keep your mind off some of your troubles.
Staying safe and healthy is the main goal for all of us, as we get ready to go back out among people. Mask and hand sanitizer and washing your hands in anti-bacterial soap. Disinfect all your flat services after use. Bathroom, kitchen and laundry area. We tend to get busy with our work outside this time of year and touch things that are not clean. I carry a small container of hand sanitizer with me in my Fanny pac. All those little giveaways from meetings etc., and you thought you would never use. I have several small spray bottles of sanitizer from those kind of things and now it has really came in handy.
Do you fret about things easily? Sometimes I do just that. It sort of reminds me of how nervous a House Wren gets when you get near her house with babies in it. You just have to let go—get some fresh air, do some yard work, tidy up some odd jobs you have been stacking up for quite some time. I have managed to get my mending caught up, scrapbooking almost caught up, and done some organizing and cleaning. My grand dog, Maleena has moved in until her family can get a permanent place that is suitable. Wow, we love her, and will be sad to see her go. She is company in the house, and in the yard. She loves to run, and hunt mice, chase bees, and go for walks on the trails. Loves to go in the old farm truck with Duane to the farms to chore. She is a good friend, loyal and loving.
By the next time we speak, the hummingbirds should be here or on their way. Until next time, good birdwatching.
