Speaking of meals...The birds have been all around for the last couple of days too. I really enjoy watching them. We have quite a community of birds that include cardinals, blue Jays, chickadees, nut-hatches, and wrens--Even the woodpeckers, crows and a squirrel have come. However an uninvited flock of Starlings has shown up and they really are a nuisance! I don't think they are a particularly pretty bird. Added to that they act like a street gang because they scare away the smaller birds and gobble up all the food I put out, leaving nothing for the other birds. Carl says they're hungry and have to eat too--Of course I realize that, but it doesn't make me sympathetic to them at all. Maybe my dislike for their being here is like the Wolf Spider from last week, I am not seeing their beauty and misunderstand them too.
