Friday Favorites – For the Birds

Have the birds been singing in your neighborhood?

We have a few that think they’re opera stars!!!!! 😉

Although some do stay through winter, it’s always a special treat to see the birds returning here for the warm months. We feel lucky to have such a variety.

Among our favorites are the red-winged blackbird, the chickadee, the eastern bluebird, the cardinal, the goldfinch and the purple finch.

In addition, blue herons and mallards enjoy the little pond behind our house, and there’s usually a new family of baby ducks each spring!

Over the last couple of years, we’ve even had a pair of swans spend a night or two in the pond. Obviously, we’re a just a Motel 6 on their longer journey! 😉


So what birds like to hang out in your neck of the woods?
