Our December copy of Birds and Blooms arrived yesterday. A glimpse into berries, birds and their winter presence. If you are lucky enough to have colorful red berries on your property, now is a very good times to watch for the birds to come and grab a morsel. Early morning, or the later half of the afternoon you can find Cardinals especially foraging. In fact, we find the color red is a dominant color to look for in the bushes. Birds love to congregate and you will surely hear and see them when you are outdoors and taking a walk. It’s very thrilling to hear and see them
We spied this beautiful berry bush without any leaves on our walk yesterday. Each day we pass it, and hope to get a glimpse of a bird in pursuit of a berry, but we’ve not been quick enough to get a snapshot. We will keep trying.
Walks now are perfect times to see the birds. They are singing up a storm especially in dormant Rose bushes. Yesterday there had to be at least twenty sparrows in one bush as we walked by. They we’re chirping up a storm as we are having very mild temperature days.
