Hi, It’s Porch Time!
This afternoon I stepped out on my porch and decided I would fill my four window boxes with fresh potting soil to get them ready for new plants,…..
I also transplanted some Catnip plants into a large pot……The cats will Love this!!! The whole time I was listening and watching all the birds! I had all the usual suspects….chickadee’s, cardinals, mourning doves, house sparrows, starlings, assorted finches…….and then I looked over and there they were!!
A male and female Rose Breasted Grosbeaks!! I stood there in awe for a few seconds…. The male so black and white with the red throat, so handsome!! At first I didn’t know that it was the female. I had only seen the male a couple times before but Never a female. I ran and got my bird guide and quickly looked her up…. Luckily for me they stayed on the feeder for some time. I could hear them breaking thru the black oil sunflower seeds as they gobbled them down. I was sad to see them fly off into the trees as a loud truck roared by. I hope I continue to see them. Maybe they will have a nest near by? Bring the offspring to the feeders? 🐣 Okay….I’m getting ahead of myself. One can hope! I’ll keep you updated…….
Till next time…….
