A rainy day yesterday called for some fun indoor activities. After baking some cookies Reece and I made some lovely little bird feeders out of apples and oranges, inspired by these. We headed outside after making them, hanged them up, ran back inside and watched from the back door to see who would visit first. Within minutes there were chickadees, gold finches and red breasted nuthatches. So exciting for my little man...and me too!
Last week we started a little list of all the birds that visit our backyard. To our surprise this weekend we were treated to sightings of an eastern towhee on both Saturday and Sunday. The three of us stood at the kitchen window watching the pure beauty of this bird. Such a special treat for us.
