This morning I was surprised when I opened the drape and they were all in my back yard pecking away. At what? What could there possibly be on that rocky patio or that hard dirt ground with nothing but needles on it? I wonder. Surely there are no worms close to the surface when it is freezing outside? What are they looking for? They all flew away to the neighbors yard when I opened the drapes.
Sometimes they are swooping around in the trees above and sometimes they are walking all around the street and front yards. What are they doing here together? Except for the little birdies who built the nest and had the babies I have never seen such a close knit group of birds around here hanging together for such a long time.
Wish I could get their picture but at the slightest sound they fly, fly away. How does that song go? And what does that song really have to do with birds? Now I can't get it out of my head. Back from the Ella Fitzgerald days.
