HAPPY TUESDAY . . . Tweet, Tweet

The American Finch

Although our bird feeding station is set up in our backyard, one feeder hangs from a small tree outside the front window.  This seed is meant to attract mostly the various finches, though enjoyed by a few hungry squirrels.  It is positioned so one can relax in a living room chair, close to the window and do nothing but "bird watch" ~ up close and personal!  These photos were taken through the glass and it surprised me that they came out as clear and crisp as they did.  I've found that bird watching, whether here through the window, or off the deck in the backyard is a wonderful pastime. It is a stress reliever, almost meditative and quiet except for their singing and chatter.  In time one learns to recognize their songs, identify them and  understand their activities and behavior and interaction with one another.  It makes me happy . . .

  2. We do this as well. In our laundry room we can watch the birds take a bath in the fountain and out back there are the hummingbird feeders and we've had about two dozen all winter long. We then have another bird feeder that all the other birds enjoy. Watching them brings such joy.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Ann. Scritches to Dougie Dog and Miss Zoey. ♥

  8. We haven't seen many birdies at our feeders lately. (Maybe they all went over to your place!) We did get some cute little chickadees yesterday.

  14. Those are great pictures! I sometimes sneak out on the deck on hands and knees moving slowly. And seldom get as good ones. Maybe I need a shrub on the deck as a blind, LOL! ~ TBT
