I love your postings of birds we don't get here in Texas. Keep the photos coming!
Thanks for the encouragement. Sometimes I feel like I'm posting the same thing year after year but I hope to continue as long as we live here.
I feel like I'm living in bird watching heaven. So many birds that I'd only seen in bird books before we moved to the country. Every spring I'm thrilled when they return, except for the Cowbirds and the English Sparrows.
The Goldfinches are year round residents, but they do change color with the seasons. In the late spring and summer the males are bright yellow.

I love the pink knits in your blog. Is that my pink choice? It's beautiful!
You caught me! Yes, this is the cuff of one of your birthday socks. Glad you like it.

What? No pictures of the Louise lunch? I always look forward to them. Hopefully a good time was had by all.
I hauled out the camera for daughter Heather's sock unwrapping and then got so busy yakking I forgot to get it out again.
The weather was horrid – cold (40s), very windy, and rain so there was no stopping for pictures on the way to our cars. We put our heads down and ran for it. I’ll try to remember to get some family pictures at Kimmy’s choir concert next week.
We had a very nice time. It’s fun to have Kimmy old enough to talk adult talk with us.

A Hummingbird stopped by here for a drink last week. So it should be there any day. :-)
They arrived May 6, just in time for a week of cold, wet, windy weather.
Why do birds migrate from warm, tropical places to climates like SW Michigan?
