This little visitor has been here since the weekend. He always hops up on the suet feeder...seems to have some trouble getting up there once in a while. He's quite comfortable with me going next to the window...isn't skittish at all. I love his little song...I think this is a tanager...maybe a Scarlet Tanager. Does anyone know for sure?
We have also had some Rose Breasted Grosbeaks visiting. They didn't want to pose for a picture, however.
I have heard the Baltimore Orioles in the woods...so I had better get their grape jelly ready.
This is the reason I love spring...the sighting of new birds in our yard and the return of old friends.
Now an update on Tim...Yesterday he had a spoonful of baby food...applesauce, and Renee put gatorade in his cup with the sponge stick. They shaved him and the speech pathologist started working with him. Still many problems but taking baby steps toward recovery.Today his cousin, who he hasn't seen in a long time, will visit him. Tim said that he wants to go to Wisconsin and just relax at his sister's house on the lake.He barely speaks...but he has such a whisper of a voice right now...so hard to understand him and frustrating for him I'm sure.
