White Breasted Nuthatch
The white breasted nuthatch has been one busy bird today collecting goodies from the feeder.
Are turkeys not the ugliest birds you have ever laid eyes on? At least I think so. It is the face that kills me. A face only a mother could love. But, they are big, beefy and run pretty funny. The only thing I can say that is pretty, or should I say – pretty special is the way they fan their feathers during mating season, now there is a plus! That is pure beauty!
I don’t sit and stay long in one place. I am a wandering fool. I capture what is in front of me, or what I happen to run into on my explorations. There is something to be said for enjoying a cup of coffee while sitting at the edge of a pond or lake. Nothing rushed, nor expected. Just out enjoying the environment and sipping coffee. Perfection. Bliss.
The calendar states it is spring in Wisconsin, so darn it, warm up already. Instead, we have 34 degree weather, with tiny, snowflakes drifting down from the sky every once in awhile. My teens are off for spring break and our family had decided between work schedules and additional commitments, we were staying home for spring break. This is not our family, is it?
