hiking and bird watching


April started out with lots of rainy and cloudy days.  Luckily, there was always a couple of hours each day where the rain stopped and I could go hiking in the local trails.

The Sparrows (house, fox, golden-crowned, white-crowned) discovered the seed I was putting out for them within a few days of my moving into this new place.   Soon after,  the Chickadees, Juncos, Towhees, Finches and Flickrs discovered the feeders too.

I started reading Gloria Steinem's "My Life on the Road" and love this quote from her book.  The beginning of this year was full of uncertainty for me.  And I can see how that gave me the chance to establish a new beginning, to begin the next chapter in my life.

So nice that you take advantage of the hours without rain. I do the same. Though we had rain last night, we have not had much rain this spring, but we sure had snow.

Lovely that your birds found the food. They are such a joy to watch and learn about. I just took my feeders down, bears are awake now. Only a winter thing here.

Your bird photos are lovely. I hope your new home feels good to you and that you experience much happiness there.
