“I can assure you that the life outside the front door is bright and full of life”
― Sunday Adelaja
I could not resist publishing this bright little fellow today. It’s dull,cold, and dreary outside and I’m thinking back to last week, when the sun shone through, briefly. WHile on a short stroll to get a breath of fresh air, I came across this Chickadee, also enjoying the bright sunshine from his perch among the red-osier dogwoods.
While the chickadees do stay around through the winter here, it’s been pleasant to hear them singing once more, yet another harbinger of spring, which seems to be coming in fits and starts this year.

they are one of my favorite birds- I love the friendliness!
Some days they don’t mind people, others they are a bit skittish, but always present.
Love this shot of the chickadee.
We must have swapped weather. It’s nice to hear the birds singing again. We don’t have Chickadees across the pond, unless they’re a type of tit or finch that we call be another name…yours is a bonny little thing.
What say you today, little Chipping Sparrow?
Gone are the winter winds that chill to the marrow.
Do you take vigor from Spring’s rebirth,
As blossoms and sunshine caress the Earth?
Seek peace (and spring)
