Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.



Tamarack trees provided what little color was left out there.

I got to head back to my favorite park with a friend yesterday. It was cold, almost sleeting and I figured those little birds would be hungry.

You see, I’d taken her out there last summer so that she could experience feeding the birds out of her hand and we had not one bird visit us!

Even without color the woods was still beautiful.

She sort of thought I’d made up the whole thing about the birds out there swooping down into people’s hands for a snack. But yesterday was an entirely different story. Those little ones were all over her!

Three birds visit at once!

And at the end of our walk we ran into some turkeys. They were hungry too.

The colors in the turkey feathers was just amazing.

I trust none of them will be on a table come this Thursday.

Dressed in red bowties, but not planning on attending Thanksgiving dinner.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. The little hand-feeders are amazing. Turkey seem so bland until you look closer and see all of that color…


    • I love the little birds, wish a few more varieties would drop down and enjoy a snack. We always have titmice and chickadees, sometimes a nuthatch will get brave and a couple small woodpeckers on occasion. Juncos and blackbirds are interested but can’t quite make themselves trust us. Jays just squawk a lot and wait till we leave then swoop down for the leftovers.
