I spend much of my day in my home office.
Lot's of windows, views of the river...I am surrounded by my bird feeding garden.
There is a Sand Cherry Tree to the left of the window,
it is a favorite landing spot for all of my feathered friends and my "secret viewing arena"!
I am pretty sure I only have one mockingbird in the yard right now,
returning after being absent all Winter, I had forgotten how easy this bird is to photograph.
I had the window open when he/she landed in the Cherry Tree...
and spending a few minutes up close with this beautiful bird was glorious!
I love each of these pictures for a different reason...
The branches have grown in an almost circular pattern,
giving the birds a perfect place to land.
And if Spring ever arrives, this tree will have beautiful little flowers on it.
