We’re interrupting the regular Duck Dynasty program due to a winter weather warning. Today was a snow day. Not only by the weather outside, but also on my home office desk. So while I watched the beautiful snow fall and the birds busy at the feeders, I was busy working on papers.
A brief ten minutes was found late in the day and the urge to capture birds in the snow overtook me. Luckily the birds were still quite busy and it was such a pleasure to spend a few moments with them.
At the rate I’m going through bird food, I think these birds are going to bankrupt me. But they’re so cute. How could I ever stand them having little to forage on?
Some of my garden visitors are here for the winter. Why ever they don’t go further south where it doesn’t snow makes me wonder.
But then, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy lots of Dark Eyed Juncos or White Throated Sparrows flitting about.
What’s ironic is that in the summer I follow the juncos to Maine and enjoy a lovely summer holiday on picturesque Mount Desert Island. The others are year-round residents, and they’ve become accustomed to being spoiled at the manor.
Even the little Carolina Chickadee bows down in thanks for such abundance.
It makes me think. Even the smallest creature can appreciate kindness and consideration. One’s spirit is always warmed if it has a giving nature. You will never regret being kind and generous to others.
If only everyone in the world would understand this simple thing.
Have you done something nice for someone today?
