I promised this year I would not complain about old man winter. I could go on and on about it negatively, but what is one to do except move to Hawaii. There is an inch of ice on the ground and now, more inches of snow on top of it. So, I'll say something nice about it.
I do so love birds. They are eating me out of house and home this winter. I feed them sunflower hearts as there is no mess leftover nor uneaten seeds. At one point, I counted 20 cardinals on my little apple tree. It was a beautiful sight. They would not cooperate for a photo though so I had to shoot what I could with my phone. One can't be too stealthy with birds and I'm not going outside to get a good shot. The males are all challenging each other while the females wait patiently for the orioles and chickadees to drop food from the feeders. What else is there to do on a day like this? It's definitely a day for bird watching.
