There was a time in my life that I did not like birds. I've never been a morning person and it seemed that I was always "fortunate" enough to have a tree or bush right outside my window where the birds would sing their little hearts out at 7 or 8 in the morning. Considering I was planning on sleeping in until noon, this would infuriate me! I never understood how people actually enjoyed waking up to the sound of chirping birds.
Well now that I'm older and have children who wake me up bright and early, I really enjoy observing and hearing our little feathered friends. As a matter of fact, I'm planning for bird houses and feeders at our new house. I love taking photos of them. Huh. Who knew?!
