"Bird Feeder"

It's been a long, cold winter here in Idaho. In fact, it snowed just last Sunday. The weekend before that, we finally had a couple of warm days (near 80) and we started getting our yard ready for spring.

We bought a new bird feeder and filled it with seed that is suited to birds in our local area. We hung it up and after a couple of days the birds found it. We've only had it about two weeks or so and the food is half gone. I think we will be filling it year-round.

The birds add color to our yard. This is a male "House Finch." (according to my National Audubon Society Field Guide to Birds-Western Region) The males are much more colorful than the females.

I just love to watch them, sometimes all four perches are filled with birds. They put a smile on my face and a song in my heart.
