I'd like to watch my birds, but they are the most aggravating things! They will not be still!
Don't misunderstand; I love my birds. I love their tweets and chirps and caws and whistles. I love their flashes of color in the trees.
But, I would love them even more if they'd just be still and let me take their picture every once in a while.
I have a hummingbird feeder - well, those guys don't even count, they never be still for anyone. I also hung three bird feeders in the trees around my back deck. The seeds disappear, so I know they're coming around. I even see them sitting there having a snack - but just for a second. If I pick up my camera, they're off within seconds. And, if heaven forbid, I open the door to come out...! You'd think I'm mean to them or something!
Anyway, here are a few of my flighty little neighbors.
