I gave you a little preview on Friday of some of our wonderful Backyard Birds who have visited the Bird Kitchen this month...  Today---I'll show you more of them!!!!

Hope you enjoy seeing these little beauties.  I especially love them in Spring -in their colors...  This is the season of love and nesting for the birds ---so the area is bustling with songs and joy!!!!!  Thank God for our little BIRDS!!!!  Be sure to click on the photos for enlargements.
