In the midst of a quick trip to see family, it is always fun to spend some time bird watching and listening at my father-in-law's house.
The many cardinals are usually the show stoppers
But there are Carolina Wrens
Increasingly golden goldfinches
And sweet song sparrows
A robin makes an appearance...I was hoping for a towhee
And there are grackles, boat-tailed and otherwise
A yellow-bellied sapsucker!
A red-bellied woodpecker, hitting the seed!
And this splendid little vocalist, the yellow-rumped warbler!
It is good to be down home for a few days, where the weather is warm and friends and family are welcoming.
