Our Newest Tenant

This has really been the year for us when it comes to birds in the yard. We've had our first ever Baltimore oriole at the feeder; our first ever wrens nesting in the wren houses; our first ever pair of downy woodpeckers and hairy woodpeckers at the suet feeder; and now, this is the first time we have had a robin nesting in the gutter crevice. I'm surprised that we haven't had more robins nesting in our yard before, but we seem to have finally reached the point where the birds consider our yard to be an attractive habitat this year. And we would have to agree with their assessment, as we just bought some adirondack chairs, solely so we could sit out under the trees in the yard.

How wonderful!

I have wrens nesting around our little acre - do every year. Their morning song is a welcome wake-up call!

Enjoy all your feathered friends. They are a blessing.
