It’s been a snow shower and freezing rain kind of day. Not my favorite weather, but the birds didn’t seem to mind as much as me. Lots of birds flocked to my backyard and bird feeder today. These red cardinals looked so pretty against the the winter white of the day.
I really can’t choose a favorite kind of bird, they are all beloved to me. I’ve only been a bird watcher for a few years, but I’m hooked! The more you look, the more kinds of birds you start to see! And, I love looking at them through the lens of my camera because I can zoom in and appreciate the fine details of the individual beauty of each creature.
If you are interested you can find more bird pictures under the birds header at the top of my page. You can see recent posts about my beloved pets Pal and Stripey Boy on my blog. So much to love! Aren’t God’s creatures grand?!
I happened upon a challenge called The Weekly Smile which runs Wednesday to Wednesday! So, I decided to join in. We can all use a reason to smile! The sight of this vibrant male Cardinal makes me smile. The sound of its song makes me smile too. The weather here has been perfect for sitting on my back porch and watching my backyard birds which, of course, makes me smile! Clearly, I am a fan of simple pleasures!
I hope you are having a great day!
