birds at my feeder, originally uploaded by Roberta Warshaw.

In winter, I could sit in my bedroom and watch the birds at my feeder all day long. As if I don't have anything else to do. Living in the city, I mainly get sparrows. Tons of them. Occasionally I get a rambunctious blue jay, the occasional chickadee and when the snow flies, if I am lucky, I get a cardinal. Oh and woodpeckers on the suet.

When I lived out in the country I had nuthatches, grosbeaks, evening grosbeaks, and wild canaries.

But now I must be satisfied with sparrows.
In fact, they are not so bad. Kind of cute.
Very curious and not at all shy.

They are so incredibly soothing to watch.
Unassuming little sparrows have ever & always been one of my favorites. They always strike me as the foundation of bird-dom, lol. No colors, no intense antics or habits. Simply, comfortingly, just always there....
Another great image!

I love sparrows too. They seem to always be around to amuse and soothe, and looked at closely are quite pretty.

I did see one the other day that was an albino! Totally white except for one spot on his wing. I had never seen that before!
