    Mr Johnson has been spying on me and the wife!! My wife thinks we should have all manner of birds in the backyard here in the big city. Reality is, only the most common and dull birds inhabit our fair city. Yep, we got those little brown birds too!

    Saw one of those red-headed Pileated woodpeckers in my yard just last week! Much larger than any woodpecker I had ever seen!

    Once when I was young, my brother and I startled a Golden eagle away from a kill.
    Let me tell you it was something to see that thing take off from the ground not 15 feet away from you.

    A friend gave us our Bird Watcher’s Guide two decades ago after I pointed out the “Spardinals” that had started visiting our new feeders. Grinning, he turned to the page that identified the sparrow looking birds with their varying coverage of red on backs and heads as Purple Finches.
    No purple anywhere. Sparrows with a splash of cardinal red.
    We still call them Spardinals. Its more fun.
    Happy Spring, Neighbors.
    Respectfully,

    We have a bramble type bush that houses at least 2 hummingbird nests every year. It’s so tight and thorny that nothing can penetrate it but those tiny birds. We grow red trumpet vines close to it so as to watch them.

    Have you ever heard them? Humming birds have a very high-pitched chirp. Hubby can’t hear them, but I do.

    Yeah, it’s just about time to put the “hummer” feeder out here in Michigan. Love watching them. Very aggressive. Am building a waterfall this summer. Hope to attract more of them.
