Bird Watching ~

ok...this is not exactly a rare species, but it is our beloved little budgie,
'Barbara' ~ and yes, Barbara is a boy. ..



Barbara came to live with us when he was young, and we couldn't tell if he was a she or vice-versa
so, Hannah named our new little friend Barbara...

turns out he is a he, and he is so much fun to have here in our farmhouse...
he rings all of his bells non-stop, chitters and chatters and whistles & chortles ~
you can walk past his cage without him shrilling a catwhistle at you
(I have no idea where he learned that...)




and of course Igmeister loves Barbara too
(well, he would love him...with ketchup)

but Ig is more interested in the birdies at the feeders outside ~




here's who visited us this morning ~
...a beautiful male Indigo Bunting.








sorry they're a bit blurred ~
he moves fast!





he's eating the seeds from some wild broom corn and grass in the backyard...





I tried to get a snap of a Scarlet Tanager that was also visiting, but he was waaayy too quick for me!




Linen is being shipped today.
will be listing more in my etsy shop this aft ~

Wishing you all a beautiful day filled with creativity!
Blessings from the farm,
Lori
