Yesterday was one of those very rare days around here. For about 3 hours, I was the only one home. Just me and the dog, and the cats. It was very quiet (the tv is never on when I'm the only one here), and it was a gorgeously mild spring day, so the windows were all open.
I love this time of year, and this is just one reason. This morning I heard the unmistakable high pitched chirps of a Cedar Waxwing, so when I looked out the window, sure enough there were a pair in the Highbush cranberry bushes having themselves a nice breakfast on the berries. Of course I didn't have my camera in hand, so while standing there watching them, my face only a foot away from the hummingbird feeder, the female hummingbird came up and had herself a rather lengthy drink. Its been a long time since I got a good pic of a hummingbird, so maybe I'll give that a shot today. I love my birdies :o)
