With a dry winter and spring the birds have made the most of our two birdbaths. During the winter months the Cedar Waxwings and Robins were the most frequent visitors. At times there would be between 15-20 Cedar Waxwings on the birdbath.
Spring arrived but the rains failed to fall. The nesting birds soon found the birdbaths and visited often. Stubby, our cat, sleeping on the porch didn’t seem to worry the bathers. Watching the bathers during meal time became our regular routine.
You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you’re finished, you’ll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird . . . So let’s look at the bird and see what it’s doing – that’s what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.
