I’ve mentioned before that I haven’t been getting out into my garden as much as I should or as much as I used to. In fact, we only just refilled the bird feeders on Saturday.
You should see the birds though! They must put out a neighborhood call that “diner” had arrived because our yard is just full of small little birds like house wrens, small starlings, finches and yesterday I saw a bird that I consider pretty rare in almost downtown Toronto. I saw a cardinal!
As a result of all the feasting going on the bird feeders – two big ones – are almost empty. Actually I think my husband filled them on Saturday and last night.
I think we’ve also got a few house sparrows building a nest under one of our upstairs window air conditioners. I can see them flying around the window every few minutes and they are chirping away like crazy.
If they are successful in building a nest and if we can’t get it out our July house guests will not like sleeping in that spare bedroom! Birds around here start chirping at about 3:30 a.m.! They don’t stop until around 10 p.m.. I think they need more sleep, don’t you?
It could be a noisy summer!
