Bird watching

I think watching birds at a bird feeder is as relaxing as watching fish in a fish tank.  I have two of them in my yard so some mornings while I’m standing in my kitchen drinking my tea I stare out the window at them coming and going.  It’s kind of a nice way to start the day.  On Saturday I put out a fresh suet cake and a brand new bag of seed.  Yesterday I looked out the window and there must have been 30 birds all enjoying a feast.  I have Cardinals, Juncos, Nuthatches, Downy Woodpeckers, Blue Jays, Flickers and all kinds of Sparrows.  But when I saw another big bird swoop down from a nearby tree and land on the feeder to eat some suet I got all excited because it was a beautiful red headed woodpecker.  I grabbed my binoculars and just watched him eat for a while.  It totally made my day.  I hope he enjoyed his snack.
