I was outside early this morning, cleaning and filling up the bird feeders. Suddenly, the quiet was interrupted by “Peter, Peter, Peter.” I paused and looked around. While I didn’t spot the bird, I knew there was a Tufted Titmouse nearby.
I think birding and gardening go together, although I’m a much better gardener than birder! My good friend Kelly, who blogs at Red and The Peanut is a birder extraordinaire—she knows more about birds and nature than I ever will, and she has patiently taught me most everything I know about birding, including how to recognize a handful of birds by their songs.
