What I see from Home


I took my camera outside tonite and did a quick little walk around the yard and down the road. I love old barns and this one is just around the corner from us. Each year it seems to sag just a little more and one of these years it will collapse I'm sure.
The top right corner picture is a bird sitting on top of a little bird house on my deck fence, this little bird is there off and on all day just singing its little heart out. It flits from one bird house to another and I think it is asking the female for approval of one of the houses to build a nest in. I hope she makes up her mind soon. He sings from dawn to dusk everyday, I'm afraid he will loose his voice. Talk about diligence and perseverance this little guy has it. I think its a finch of some sort, if anyone has any idea for sure let me know.
