So….I must confess….this morning, I have accomplished nothing. Nada. The dishes from last night are still sitting on the counter. (not many, but messy) My bed is still unmade. I did feed the Scots and take them out, so no need to feel guilty on that account!
After taking a rather leisurely bath, I went into the bedroom and plopped down on top of the unmade bed and propped the laptop onto my folded knees. Ah, relaxation!
As I hopped about, looking at blogs and reading a little on the internet, I was aware of a “funny noise”. I glanced over at the window…..arghhhhh! I am beginning to wonder….There, clinging onto the frame of the window was……MR. GOLDFINCH!!! Good GRIEF! The feeder is downstairs, NOT near the bedroom window. Alas, I have resigned myself to the fact that I am being pursued by a tiny, brightly-colored finch…..
I had taken the photo of the Red-Breasted Woodpecker earlier this morning from the bedroom, so after Mr. Golfinch’s shenanigans, I was kind of keeping an eye out to see if he would try that stunt again.
I do keep an ear open, as well, as sometimes I hear a “new song” in the trees. And so it happened this morning. Curious as to whom this pretty song was coming from, I got up and looked out the window. Egads!
I quickly grabbed my camera and was able to capture an Indigo Bunting! No big deal, I guess, as I have seen them down near the road in years past. However, I have never seen one near the house, nor have I photographed one! If you expand the photos below, you can see my pretty little fellow more closely. I could have cropped the photos, but I really hate doing that. (More laziness on my behalf? Not really…I like to show my photos in their “whole”!)
You can’t read here for more than a day or two without knowing that blue is my most favorite color of all! So, you can certainly see just why I was shaking so with excitement!!!
