backyard bird watching

Robin on a fense

It's whale migration season here, so I'm going out most days with my camera. Of course, the one day I forgot to bring it, there were Orcas passing through! What an amazing sight that was and I got to put it in my art journal instead of a photo.

On a different day, while I was sitting and watching for whales, this Robin sat on the fence in front of me for the longest time.

On my art blog, I talked about how a bird started building a nest in my bicycle basket. I spent the spring of 2014 learning and trying to spot all the birds that live in my neighborhood.

Lately, I have come to realize that it's my way of remembering my Mom. When I was living at home taking care of her, she loved to watch the birds every morning while she ate breakfast. That is why it warms my heart to backyard bird watch.

We see the Orcas up here too - always a magical sight!
This morning as I walked in the neighbourhood I saw a lovely fat robin, not unlike the one you photographed. It's lovely to have found you on Warm Heart Wednesday.

Pretty birds. I know that feeling of not having my camera when the perfect opportunity comes along.
