A Splash of Red
Watching the birds at the feeder yesterday morning I noticed that some of the chickadees were sporting a new color, a stripe of red had appeared on their heads and a red breastplate had appeared on their chests. Either the cardinal, whom we see infrequently, had been up to something or the guys were getting ready for spring courting. Even the doves were getting into the act wearing black polka dot on their chests. Must say they look adorable and I am pleased to report my lone dove has found a mate. Hello, spring is coming.
