Birds are beautiful...

I think these creatures are some of the most amazing in creation. I'm totally addicted to taking pictures of them with my new camera even though I'm not particularly good at it. This perfect little guy was in a hedge outside a bank building near the airport in Charlotte, NC last weekend. He was so watchful and didn't even attempt to fly away. At one point, he was staring right at me, as if to say "Yes, I know I'm magnificent!" I got the shot but I like this one better. Isn't he something?


My husband and I decided to try and keep a journal of all the birds we see and identify them. That's why the notes are at the bottom of the picture. I figured it would be easier to find the info if it was attached to the photo :)

I'm planning on making this cool looking (and supposedly great tasting for the birds) Suet Wreath to hang outside our LR window where one feeder is. Here's the link in case you want to try one too: http://blog.hgtvgardens.com/for-the-birds-make-a-suet-wreath/

On a side note, I just want to say that I miss Rural Thursdays with Nancy & Lisa. I loved seeing what was happening in other parts of the country, in people's backyards, and on their farms. I'm finding I don't have as much spare time lately to surf around to visit some of my favorite places and leave comments but I hope everyone is having a blessed new start to 2013 and taking lots of pictures!

Have a great day in the Lord!

    Love this photo -- it's stunning.

    1. That's true, Nancy. I don't feel pressured to get a post made for RT but I now find myself with so many things to share! Oh, the dilemma ;)

    1. Thanks, Susan! I put the text on there so I wouldn't forget where I took the photo because I'm too lazy to keep a journal ;)
