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
