Winter Bird Watching

One of my favorite winter activities is watching birds flit around the garden and perch on bird feeders.   Their lively movements, songs, and colors bring life to the gray landscape.  In December an imposing Red Tail Hawk stopped by.  It was an unusual sighting because these birds aren’t often found in urban environments.  I suppose if I were going to be philosophical about it I’d say that it is a sign of the times.  Even the most magnificent among us have to adapt to a changing world.
