I can hardly wait for the birds to start flocking back. Oh! To hear their songs again! I don't care what kind they are or whether they're good birds or bad birds, I just love them! Our poor little Suzie just sits in the window all day long during spring, summer and fall until we close the storms and have to shut down the big windows. All winter she'll reach up to the sills and look back at us as if to beg us to open them again! I hope she doesn't think that because we've shut the windows, the birds go away?
Driving through the countryside the other day, we spotted some awesome purple martin houses. This is a breed of bird that we all encourage to come because of all the insects, mostly mosquitoes, that they'll eat in a day. Way better than pesticides and repellents?
