This and that and a lot of birds

I have suddenly become interested in birds. Well not really Little and I have always watched the birds outside our window to see what they were up to? The mocking birds fighting for territory and dive bombing the crow who came to close to the nest. The hawk that soars in the back yard every afternoon. And of course you know I created those field guid sheets for her so she can learn about observation.

So we always liked to see who was out our window and now we have a lot more birds out the window. We moved!

That right Moved

after a year and half of looking and me giving up many a time, being out bid on I don’t know how many places we found a miraculous home on a hill. With loads of gardens and birds and incredible views. I still have to pinch myself because I can hardly believe this is our house. It seems so grown up.

Right now I’m looking a a male quail perched on this flat feeder.  I have also seen this morning the spotted towhee and 2 acorn wood peckers.

Yesterday I started  keeping a yard list for this house but found I don’t really know enough about birds so there were lists of birds I did know and then long descriptions of birds I don’t know. I will have to ask mom when I see her next.

The view I posted yesterday was from the dinning room. I will take some more pictures today and post them for you.

I love the new house even though it doesn’t feel like mine yet. I need to finish unpacking and in truth I still need to finish packing the old house there are a few more tidbits there. Thankfully I have some wonderful friends that are helping with both.

I also need to find or figure out the weekly plan for watering the garden. The previous owner did an amazing job with lots of Native plants I think she said there were over 150. some of it is on irrigation and some is hand water and I am not sure which plant needs what when. So I guess I better go round and figure that out today before any suffer.

I am off to unpack more, well tea first and then unpack!

I hope everyone is doing well and I am sorry I took so long off in-between writing.

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
