The computer is finally fixed, I hope, and back home again. In the interim, I've been extremely thankful to have my iPad2! I've also been enjoying settling into a new home. It's a great place to observe and enjoy a variety of birds, so I've been acquiring bird feeders and poles to hang them from.
I love hummingbirds and there are a lot of hummers around here. At the house the dominant species seems to be the Rufus hummingbird - a feisty critter if there ever was one. They claim the feeder(s) and won't let other hummers near it.
We also have chickadees, tufted titmice, house finches, blue jays, tohees, and other birds. I've been looking at what kinds of feed and feeders I might need since some of these birds are ground feeders and others like feeders of different kinds. We also have a chorus of 3 chipmunks to complete our menagerie. I'm sure I'll see more as time goes by.
At any rate, I'm happy to be back on line. I tweeted so much this morning that Twitter told me I couldn't tweet again for an hour! Never did that before. At any rate, I'm glad to be back. I'll have more new listings on Etsy and on Dianakirkpatrick.com asap!!
