11:00 PM - Bird Feeding

I know this isn't a very good picture, but it was the best I could get. I was outside at 11:pm and as I looked over on my patio, I was shocked to see - a feathered lil friend on a feeding frenzy. Birds are asleep at night, right???? I couldn't believe my eyes. What was this lil friend doing out here in the 15 degrees night?! I got as close as I could and saw that his body was gray, with a patch of darker gray on his chest, a white ring around his neck and black around his eyes (like a mask). I was afraid he was stuck on the feeder or frozen so I walked up to it until I could almost touch it and then the bird looked at me and flew away. I was happy that it wasn't stuck or frozen, but it left me there in wonderment. I still don't understand how or why he was out so late. It was a sweet lil visit and brought a smile to my face as I like to think of his presence as some sort of sign for me. I am blessed, that I know and lifes little treasures are what I always look for.

What a sweet blog. I love our birds, and after finishing "The Secret Garden" I am totally in awe over the whole magical experience.
