What a show

This evening around 7, I was sitting in the patio enclosure with all the windows open.  It was a gorgeous day (finally again).  It was in the high 70's but very breezy.

I don't know if I mentioned, before winter came, Hippie hung the bird feeder out again right next to the garden.

Anyhow while I was sitting there, the birds (sparrows, blue jays, cardinals) were eating out of the bird feeder.  There was a squirrel underneath the feeder eating the seed the birds flicked out of it.

Then lo and behold, the bunny rabbit came into the backyard.  He went and checked out the garden where the squirrel was but didn't find anything.  He ended up staying on the grass and eating the weeds.

I wanted to go get the camera but I knew if I did everyone would scatter so I just sat and watched.  I felt like I was in my own little nature preserve LOL.

I do that all the time. It's the best time of day to watch nature. Mornings are fine too except on days like today when holy cow, those birds were all crazy loud.

(Our wild bunny is now on my s$&t list.)
