Recently I started getting the prettiest birds in my birdfeeder and was so excited about this. Soon, they told all their friends and I had so many pretty birds that they were lining up and some were waiting in the tree outside my window and the bougainvillea right next to my kitchen window for their turn to eat. I had so many birds I am now filling the bird feeder up every other day!
I told my friend Shellee up the street about my gloriously happy little birds and that I could not find out what special breed they are! I had searched the internet and looked at most of the unique birds and didn't see my happy birds. She listened to me explain about my new family of birds and said she had a bird on her feeder right now. I asked her to take a photo and email it to me, which she quickly did and sure enough, it was the same as my little visitors. My unique new friends are sparrows. We had a good laugh and I found out the birds I have are not unique, but they are awfully sweet and happy little guys. I have also seen a couple cardinals come visit.
The Houston Arboretum & Nature Center is a good place to find out what kind of birds you do have! Be sure to take your binoculars with you so you can take in all their beauty.
Right now they are having a nature walk to see all the different kinds of birds in our area this time of year.
