Cat Lady No. 126...Birding Buddies

Cat Lady Mimi is enjoying an afternoon with precious pets Griswold and Griselda, indulging in their favorite pastime together:


Laura puts what she calls "bird bait" in the feeders outside, and then once back inside, the three of them watch through the big picture window that looks out onto the back yard garden.

Today they saw goldfinches, purple finches, a red-winged blackbird, Stellers jays, chickadees, and a song sparrow! Griswold and Griselda get particularly quiet and twitchy when they spot their favorite, a rufous-sided towhee.

Laura has discovered a great new website from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology that is just packed with great information for the beginning birder and how to identify your newest feathered friends-- just click on the logo:
