It's a beautiful 75 degrees here in Southern Calif. Yesterday I went to Birds Unlimited to get a bird feeder and left with a lot more than I had anticipated. That is so typical for me. When I get on a mission, I don't know when to stop. I really want to encourage more wildlife in our backyard. I now have a mealworm feeder, a tube feeder, a house wren birdhouse and "best quality" bird seed. Oh, and a guide to Southern Calif. birds. Can't wait to get it all installed. I think I will get a hummer feeder too.
I'm paying homage to all the beautiful wild birds today with this sketch.
This is a warbler which I don't think we'll see in our backyard. It will, however, be fun to see what we do attract.
I'm also going to put in some butterfly-friendly plants. We have lots of butterflies now but we can always use more.
