Early morning breakfast at home
I can't help noticing all the action outside my deck door and windows.
The birds are obviously glad that my feeders are full on all sides of the house.
Mostly goldfinches and their cohorts, house and purple finches. But I've spotted some pine siskins as well as the other regulars, chickadees and white breasted nuthatches, woodpeckers, mourning doves and blue jays.
And then there is the feeder attached to my weeping birch... more little birds and bigger ones too - the constant flutter is almost audible through the closed window.
It's a busy morning outside my home this day.
Some time in the future I'll learn how to take a movie with my camera and post it - the activity, the noise of little wings, the continual calling back and forth is completely delightful and I'd love to share it. It reminds me that whatever my worries or concerns, life on this planet outside of human activity, continues at its own pace. Seems to me it's just fine today to become engrossed in all these happenings outside my home and enjoy the gift - abundance in nature.
