The Birds Are Back!

Today, as I sat here and ate my breakfast with my back to the lanai, Zoe said, “Hey look, there’s a leetle bird in de grass.” Since all that visits our backyard in the summer are Cardinals, Blue Jays, Mockingbirds, Red-Bellied Woodpecker, Mourning Doves, and the occasional Red-Shouldered Hawk, I turned around in my seat very quickly.  Lo and behold, there was my first Palm Warbler of the season!  Then we both spotted our first Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher of the season in the mulberry tree! πŸ˜€ Very happy to watch God’s little jewels on this overcast-but-otherwise-fine morning. So, welcom back, little ones; may your stay be filled with yummy bugs and berries!

    1. Haha, thank you! Birds are certainly incredible, aren’t they! God is an amazing designer. πŸ™‚
      Ooh, Michigan birds sound great! Totally different than the tropical migrations we get down here for sure.

      1. We have Robins, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Sparrows, Woodpeckers, Bobwhites, Finches, very cool Hummingbirds, Hawks, Ducks, Geese and even an occasional Heron, among others, right here in the big city. (Not to mention a tremendous population of brown, red, grey and black squirrels. Along with Racoons, Opossums, Skunks, muskrats and even Deer)

  2. So that’s how “lanai” is spelled!! I don’t think I’ve ever seen it in writing before! XD Thanks! πŸ˜€ So cool about the birds! πŸ™‚ Reminds me of this hymn…

    β™« I sing because I’m happy
    I sing because I’m free
    His eye is on the sparrow
    And I know He watches me β™«
