I celebrated my 29th birthday last week – well, x2, but who’s counting? Anyway, hubby got me a great gift – a pop up hunting blind! I set it up in the backyard the other day and sat inside, only instead of waiting with rifle in hand, I armed myself with a Canon and was ready to shoot!
My ever-curious companion, Chaco, was the first to investigate the new camouflaged hideout. This girl ALWAYS has to know where I am!
Thankfully, several birds also stopped in, like this chatty Chickadee…
…and this handsome Downy Woodpecker, who scooped up a bit of Bark Butter.
A Pine Warbler, gleaming in his autumn glow, stopped by to pose…
…as did this Red-Bellied Woodpecker, who helped himself to a peanut or two.
A White-breasted Nuthatch made an appearance as well. These little birds are ever the entertainers!
I know some gals probably prefer diamonds or fine dining, but a birthday blind was the perfect gift for me!
