A Few Of My Favorite Things

What better way to end the holiday weekend (Labor Day here in the United States) than with a sing along post featuring some of the birds I was blessed to see over the last several days! Β So channel your inner Julie Andrews and have some fun. πŸ™‚

Color of sunshine, the sweet warbler sings
These are a few of my favorite things.

When my heart sighs
and my fears rise
and my song is sad
I look at the beauty my Father has made
and soon my heart’s feeling glad!
