I’ve turned into a moderate, somewhat interested birder.

I putter around my garden and tend the hostas and gladiolas and irises and annuals and all sort of things.

And now I’ve adding birding.

My big excitement this week was identifying a chipping sparrow or two.

So far, I’ve identified:

  • chipping sparrow
  • cardinal
  • robin
  • house wren
  • blue jay
  • mourning dove
  • common grackle
  • house sparrow
  • house wren.

Now I’m actively watching.

When did I get old? This feels like something an old man would do…..
