The yard birds


When we awoke this morning one thing was for sure? We are staying in! So, time for some backyard birding!
Actually, it was lots of fun and so nice to see the birds up close. They certainly enjoyed the cover of the trees and lots of food. It was amazing to see Pine Siskin so close, as you can see.
