Up close and very personal
But there were other birds visiting all the feeders at my teacher and mentor's home. This feeder is fascinating - it sticks to the window - and as the birds become used to you on the other side of the glass - they learn to ignore you.
Brilliant I thought. I'm going looking for one.
Here is that wee house finch - head on, ignoring me completely.
We also saw a flock of starlings, not a usual sight in this village in mid-January - usually one or two - but they were scrambling for seed as well. It was hard to get much pottery done that day, I was so busy with my camera and also with just watching. Birds can be so fascinating. Enjoy your day and may you see something worth spending time watching as well.
