Mornings are my favorite time of day when we don't have to rush to work and school. I sit at the dining room table and try to identify all the birds who stop by. Every year we see a pair of cardinals, lots of sparrows and we've even a woodpecker or two. In late winter, a group of birds who look like they are wearing tuxedos stop by. My mom thinks they might be from Alaska.
My most exciting bird sighting happened last summer. I spotted an indigo bunting. Wow - these birds have
the most beautiful blue feathers. I tried to snap a photo through the screen with my phone, but I was unsuccessful. I was so excited to see this bird that I was jumping around the living room, calling out to my family. They really thought I was nuts! Take a look at a picture I found - wouldn't you be excited, too?
