Morning in the Garden
Every morning Hubby and I have breakfast on the deck. We watch the birds and Arnold with his leash trailing behind hunts chipmunks. This morning we sat out there for over two hours as the weather was perfect and after all we are retired and it is Saturday. In that time frame we saw sparrows, goldfinches, nuthatches, downy woodpeckers, a ladder back woodpecker, cardinals, a Baltimore Oriole, a humming bird, chickadees, robins, red wing blackbird, purple grackle and a mourning dove. Arnold didn't catch anything although he gave a couple of chipmunks a good chase. So far this year he has caught 1 chipmunk, 4 moles and a red squirrel. He is not interested in birds, thank goodness.
