For the Birds...

House Sparrow
The rainy season has come and the poor birds are not enjoying it one bit. While I am in here working on the first draft of Midnight Town they are out there getting wet, but at least they have the suet cakes and when I can get to the store I will get them more seed.

I love taking care of these little guys, they can be so entertaining. I have a large flock of house sparrows that make an absolute mess of the porch with their seeds, with the help of George the squirrel. I also have a downy woodpecker I named Woodrow, cardinals, blue jays, assorted other birds and the cutest pair of black-capped chickadees you will ever see. 

As you can see, this spring is going to be a crazy clean-up time. The winter was really harsh and caused a lot of damage as well as left quite the gross mess in my yard and garden. I'm thinking the first day the temperatures get above 60* F I will get the kids, lots of rubber gloves, the wheelbarrow and get out there, putting them to work.

On the bright side, my bulbs are coming up and soon there will be color everywhere, hiding the dinginess of the thaw and bringing a smile to my face.

Spring is my favorite season, with everything coming back to life and color everywhere. If it were not for the rain, I would probably be working out there.

Happy spring everyone.
