What is a ‘Bird Nerd’ you ask?
Well in my opinion it is someone who enjoys watching birds and identifying their species. (I didn’t look up the real definition but feel free if you want).
You see, we have a sun room on the back part of our house with windows on three sides. It is just amazing to sit out here and drink coffee and watch the sun come up through the trees!
I call myself a bird nerd because, we bought our house almost 3 years ago and we have this amazing back yard and trees around the perimeter of our property. We put out a bird feeder just for giggles and the previous owners had left two old wooden ones in one of the trees on the side of the house. Hubby took them down from the trees and cleaned them up and we filled up those feeders and hung them out in the middle of the yard as well. We even bought a book specifically for birds from our state and a pair of binoculars. The kids even got in on the fun and we started right away identifying and crossing off bird species that we had visiting our feeders.
I have taken so many pictures of the birds that visit I just wouldn’t know where to begin. But I thought I would add a few of my favorites in this gallery.
Recently we have had a Hawk in our backyard. I can’t wait to grab a photo of him to share some day soon. The above photos are just some of the species we have. I must not have the other pictures on this laptop. *sad face*
So, if you are a bird nerd like me I know you will get this post, if not, perhaps you will just enjoy the pictures. 🙂
