Word is getting around the neighborhood that we have food for the birds. Yesterday we had sparrows, a chickadee, a pair of goldfinches and a gorgeous male cardinal (who's picture I did not get so I hope he comes back).
It is lovely fun watching these birds. The kids all love it, although Ellie is not so easy to observe with as she lets out a crazy high-pitched squeal of delight at any living creature that makes her happy!
Speaking of birds: I currently have Elizabeth Mitchell's You Are My Little Bird album out from the library. I couldn't resist as we have called Ellerie "Little Bird, Baby Bird, Chickadee and Birdie" practically from birth. It is beautiful and sweet music and is a big hit with my birds, even the bigger ones.
