I often daydream,
gazing outside my office window when I should be working.
In winter, the view is different, the birds more abundant, more playful and friendly.
I am rebuilding my relationship with the birds as I spent many months away from the window
after the tree trimming episode.
So camera in hand,
I have been enjoying their company, and they are once again becoming comfortable with me.
I identified this bird as a Junco because of it's shape and pink beak.
The feather coloring is light but I read in my bird book that there are a number of color forms.
It is a winter visitor and there were many in the yard on the day I took this picture.
Junior is always hanging out in the tree by the window...
keeping an eye on me and begging for peanuts.
