Famous Birds

Our garden is home to many plants that I have drawn and talked about over and over but I wonder if I have mentioned famous birds that have visited.

With Springfield Lake across the road we often get to hear and watch the goings on of ducks and geese.  The playing and squawking, landing and taking off.

On one of the first cold days of fall a spruce grouse sat all puffed up storing what little heat was being given by the sun. Unlike the chickadees, bluejays, and crows who are always on the move this visitor rested for a good half hour. 

Early spring robins are a welcome sight.
