Birds Do It!

In summer life is for the birds.  To live is to eat.

Walking around Victoria, BC is, as Ernest put it, A Moveable Feast.

Winter in suburban Maryland is a different story.  For the birds and I, it’s a small, backyard world, compared to Vancouver Island’s bounteous banquet.

But small can be beautiful, and all eyes are on the feeder.

It’s the Cardinal in Winter that makes the biggest splash.

Red, white, and perhaps a bit blue, about all that white.

    We were just bird watching down at the harbor yesterday in Nelson, NZ and whether you’re in Canada, the US or New Zealand – catching glimpses of busy birds looking for their next meal is fun to see.
