I now have 4 different kinds of feeders in the back yard on various kinds of poles. Plus shelled peanuts and small seeds that I throw on the patio. If it hadn’t been snowy this morning, I’d have thrown last night’s movie popcorn out – all the visitors like that!
And the snow was very strange – little round pellets. Looks like styrofoam snow – or perhaps like most homepathic remedies. Sure didn’t look like anything nature had made!
The wrens have returned. Several years ago we had a wren nest in the front yard – never saw the next, but could hear the wrens, and occasionally see them, with their little cocked tails. Now there’s a family hanging out in back. Looked them up in Ted Andrews’ Animal Speak – Resourcefulness and Boldness. That is truly the wren. They go after what they want, and are not deterred by bigger birdfolk in the least. And such a loud song from such a little guy!
Ted says: ‘Wren holds the medicine for using what is available, and it can teach you the most effective means to build within your own environment.’ A great set of lessons. Thanks, Wren!
