What’s Up?

My backyard is still the center of attention for many birds. I figure that must be like a safe haven for them since they can easily have a balanced meal of variety of seeds, water to drink or bathe, flower nectars, wild berries and plenty of trees and shrubs for building nests for shelter or to make them their home. I don’t think it is a bad deal for any kind of bird. It makes me immensely happy to be able to help these birds.


What do you think about this guy? He’s not a bird but has a bird complex. He gets along well with the birds and hangs out all day around the feeders and bird houses. I have a name for him: “Nutcase”.

Here and There

Now that I am using my new iMac, I feel better.  My old MacBook Pro is at the Apple Shop being fixed and refurbished.

We are going through a long, long Summer in Georgia, weather temperatures rise to the high 90ºs almost daily and we are hit with sporadic summer type rainstorms (Heavy for a short period of time). Every time I’m getting ready to mow the lawn, it rains!. Most trees and plants in general are looking so strong and green, like I haven’t seen in years. All fruits and vegetables look and taste fantastic.

My avian friends are all here to visit me and always enjoy their good meals. I enjoy seeing them daily. Once in a while I see large groups of birds stop by to eat for just a few minutes and then take off to their destination.
