I love watching birds ever since my Great Aunt Aimee would bring out her field guides and show me all the different types we had in Pennsylvania.
I do the best I can to keep the feeders filled here. In the summer, it's delightful to watch the finches on the sunflower plants. Their little chirps are so beautiful.
This is my favorite hummingbird photo ever.
She was chasing and attacking a butterfly!
"Have you ever observed a humming-bird moving about in an aerial dance among the flowers - a living prismatic gem.... it is a creature of such fairy-like loveliness as to mock all description." ~W.H. Hudson
I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.
~Henry David Thoreau
