Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

The continuing saga of my hungry birds


It’s winter here, with storm fronts headed our way.

Birds know when it’s going to get rough and they stock up just like humans do.

All the birds have been hungry, emptying feeders daily.

We even put out suet to help them fuel up.

In return they’ve allowed me to grab a few images from my warm living room.

I love my birds. They’re not aware of the one shot one treat rule.

So far anyway.

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. Ages ago, our daily newspaper ran a short ad throughout asking people to Feed the Birds. We did … and it was so rewarding to be able to watch them. Now, of course, Monkey thinks the backyard is no place for any critters except him, and he chases everything off. But at least I can enjoy seeing your yard’s birds … without having to brave the cold and replenish the feeders!!


  2. They know where the good stuff is.


  3. You get so many finches! Lucky birds.


  4. Birds of a feather flock to the feeders.


  5. I go to Fred Meyer or Safeway and spend money … the birds just wait in the trees around your back yard and get plenty to eat. Who is smarter? 🙂 Hmmm.
