Feed The Birds...

I have been busy playing with the birds these days...
they are so active right now, I need to fill the feeders twice per day.
It is getting harder for them to find food and fresh water as winter approaches,
keeping up with that is more important than ever.

As I stand by my office window taking their picture, I often wonder why.
I have 15,000 plus pictures saved on my computer, most of birds.
Do I really need another picture of a Cardinal or Goldfinch?
Probably not... 
and yet there I stand with an obsession of sorts,
it could be for the picture but more likely just to spend time with them.





I think it is their freedom I admire most, flight without fear.
