Abby: We got some snow here yesterday morning, but evidently that does not stop the birds from the south from beginning their migrations! The trees outside our home were previoiusly empty and silent, but in the past couple of days they have been filled with all kinds of birds.
This is a really exciting time of year! We saw grackles, blue jays, Canadian geese, and mourning doves all roosting in the birch tree just beyond our deck. I could not stop chattering at them! I wanted to get right out there with them, but there is this big pane of glass between me and them! What to do?! I got as flat as I could for the viewing. At least they did not fly away just because I was sitting in the window.
Ms. C wanted to post a video of me chattering at the birds, but is having some technical problems getting the video from her cell-phone to the computer, so that will have to wait until a later date.
Ms. C would like to remind anyone who is interested that March 1st is the last day she will be accepting photos for her free pet-portrait portfolio project. She really appreciates all of the response so far, and will be getting back to each of you on the status of the project. If you'd like to submit photos to the project, check out the second half of this blog entry for details. You can email your photos to tabbynormal at gmail dot com, or read the link for other options. Thanks!
