Now that it’s getting colder out, I find us doing more bird watching. The birds get hungry, and if you’re one of the houses generously feeding them you become very popular with the birds. Here in Colorado, where most available water freezes, even putting out a birdbath with fresh water attracts lots of birds.
When it’s cold or snowy at our house, we’ll grab a cup of cocoa and sit near our front window and watch the birds do their thing. We have a few bird books in the bookcase nearby in case we want them. But mostly we sit and watch together.
