Magical Coming and Going


Taken a few weeks ago (January 9th to be exact), we had snow.  Preoccupied with watching the birds the following day make their way in and out of the brush piles, I suddenly remembered their water source.

Thinking about how lucky we the birds are to have an old well on the property, I bundled up to head outside that late afternoon.

I just wanted to ensure that the grate was open and accessible for the little ones.  Over the years, a few vines have grown on the inside walls providing perfect perches for the regulars.

 Interesting how Mother Nature works her magic, taking care of her own. 

just seeing, saying and sharing...

Coming and Going

Isn't that great? (grate/great)-get it? Nevermind! Nature does have a way of taking care of its own, doesn't it? xo Diana
Mother Nature can be both cruel and kind.....thankfully in this case she has offered a kindness.

JP, So nice you checked to see if they had water access. I have noticed our feeders are not being eaten on so much...there's some hawks around and I fear our birds will not be as plentiful as they used to be. I miss them too. That is part of our joy in winter watching birds come to the feeders. Blessings, stay warm, xoxo, Susie

How wonderful to read this post! I so enjoyed knowing how you take care of your yard birds. And your photos of them during a winter's day....awesome.

Thank you so much for taking time to add your link for all us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin' this week. It's greatly appreciated.
