Possess it if you can; Seldom in a woman and never in a man." One of my mother's favourite homilies. I fall into the seldom category. Today was a splendid day; hardly any wind, endless blue sky and warm temperatures. The birds in the backyard love the feeder and have no guilt over the fact that spring/summer seems to be here. They come and squabble over who should be first. Birds aren't supposed to be patient but a human should be able to learn...this is a picture I took earlier in the afternoon. If you look closely, you can see a male cross-bill on the feeder and a sparrow and a yellow-green female cross-bill on the fence. I have a lens and my camera is decent BUT I had to sit patiently and wait for the birds.
