Are you a birdwatcher? I find watching nuthatches, the tufted titmouse (do we say titmice?), chickadees, Carolina wrens, goldfinches, downey & red-bellied & pileated woodpeckers, and other frequent visitors to our yard quite wonderful.
Of course, friendly squirrel shenanigans are entertaining, too.
As I grow older I find I enjoy birdwatching more and more.
Did you know that woodpeckers sometimes peck up to 12, 000 times per day?!!

I find myself wondering how many young children pay attention to birds these days?
Maybe I’ll try and interest our neighbor’s children into birdwatching with me?
