The most amazing thing just happened!

The birds have been emptying out the small birdfeeder daily, so I was outside filling it up when a nuthatch came and landed on the pole to watch me. This bird was about 12" away from me! It landed, cocked its head from side to side as I hung the feeder back up, and chirped at me!

Of course, I got out of the way as quickly as I could before the rest of the resident birds landed. I've got a bunch of regulars who hang around and fuss at me when the feeders get low/empty.

I just saw we've got Carolina bluebirds today. They come and go, but their coloring is so amazing. I love to see them.

Just remember: birds are the remote descendants of dinosaurs. That's like having a tiny little velociraptor fussing at you.
