Spring Distractions

This time of year it is hard to sit down and write with so many distractions -- distractions of not knowing which bird is going to show up in my yard next.

It doesn't help that I have a fountain in the backyard that is a bird magnet.  The fountain draws in songbirds from all around the neighborhood.

I have had six species of sparrows and the same number of warblers stop by and it’s not even peak migration.

The colors are flowing with a flock of sun-shiny goldfinches and orange-flavored orioles.

Excuse me while I check which bird just landed in my juniper….
