These are some of the tiny winter birds
Who spend their winter (here)
Often living with us year-round. 🙂
These little feathered friends have great a capacity for suffering through the cold
And never complain!
Always, always they chirp and sing—
Adding tranquillity to our days
Their radiant joy always lends itself to our hearts
I always gift them with sweet-scented seeds
For, after all, they need to keep heat in their bodies
And a full tummy to go to bed on 🙂
They are a peaceful and
a joyful part of each and every day!
Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
Those little guys make such a difference in the winter months. It’s just nice to have them stop by. Way too quiet without them.
I saw three bluebirds yesterday. They are migrating now. Heading toward to you
Oh, how cuuuuuuuute.
I noticed the other day that a female Cardinal was rummaging around in one of our gutters, digging out nesting material. Then, I had to dig nesting material out of our mailbox. If the mailman doesn’t put the lid down, our little Carolina Wrens will makes a nest in a few hours. Those little suckers tickle me.
Late last week, I woke up to see the yard full of Robins. They are a treat to see these days. They were everywhere, every day when I was a kid, no matter the weather. Now, I only see them in the spring. ☹️
No robins here yet, but I am seeing small flocks of bluebirds. So exciting. I wish we had Carolina Wrens
I’d like to send you some. They will nest in anything.
Tomorrow the bird migrations begin here

Chaplin: “Birdy bird birds.”
Charlee & Chaplin: (chattering incoherently)
Lulu: “Whelp we won’t be getting anything useful out of those two cats for at least an hour now.”
Java Bean: “Do we ever get anything useful out of them?”
Lulu: “Fair point.”
HAHAHAH I understand! Boo Berry
I miss feeding the birds here. I did feed during the polar vortex, but have stopped anything daily because of the cats :-(.
I know. Cats. I don’t feed them either, but once in awhile if it is terribly cold.
Our sparrows know exactly when chicken feed time is and help themselves 🙂
They like to do that here also 🙂
