Last spring, my mother in law bought me a Bird Book, to identify the birds, of course. I didn't know anything about birds before that--I really hadn't ever paid much attention to them. Since I got that book I have learned more about the types of birds in our area than I ever dreamed I would. Now I love watching for the orioles; I know what a red winged black bird is (They DO NOT like me walking on the country road--it feels like they are yelling at me they put up such a ruckus and fly really close over my head.); and I got excited about the two goldfinches on our bird feeders.
A few places birds have "shown up"
// Dave and I saw a hummingbird as we were standing on our front stoop. It dive bombed our heads about 5 times before resting on a branch nearby.
// On my pandora playlists I keep hearing the Bob Marley song "Three Little Birds"...the lyrics: "Don't worry...about a thing...Cause everything little thing, is gonna be alright.."
// I just looked over the table next to me, and there sits my Tervis cup that I bought on our Florida trip, before tattoos. Covered in peacock feathers. Peacocks are birds. Huh.
// Blue Birds of Happiness. Last year in March I blogged about the Bluebirds of Happiness that I used to decorate my kitchen.
So maybe the theme of all these birds in my life is "Everthing is going to be alright."
Yep, I'm gonna believe that.
