My Favorite Things – Backyard Bird Version

The birds showed up in a frenzy yesterday afternoon; one after another swooping down for food and water.  I couldn’t decide which one to feature in a post, so I opted to give several the chance to shine in a remix of My Favorite Things.  And clearly, this post will be more fun if you sing along!

My Favorite Things (Backyard Bird Version)

Cardinals on branches


and bright Bluebirds sipping


Muddy-beaked Thrashers


and Chickadees dipping


Woodpeckers posing with checkerboard wings


These are a few of my favorite things.

Pine Warblers perching


and Jays peanut munching


Nuthatches nibbling 


and small Sparrows crunching


Ruby-crowned Kinglets with fidgety wings


These are a few of my favorite things.

When the crow cries


and the seed flies


and my shots are bad


I stand in the midst of such beautiful wings


and soon my heart feels so glad!
