As I sit in the porch looking toward the clothesline where all the bird feeders are hung, I simply cannot believe I am seeing all these fantastic birds passing thru! Today a small flock of orchard orioles arrived and there’s still one brownish tan bird I have not identified. I wish they’d stay all summer – my grape jelly and bird seed bill have skyrocketed however.
Sadly I found this female grosbeak on the ground – they have such recognizable beaks!
I am such a slug – I’m not sewing anything. Yesterday I mowed all day and last night I sat and watched a movie. Just two more choir rehearsals left for the year.
And that’s it from a little farm in North Iowa.
