I thought my first blog post should be about something I'm passionate about, and it is, birdwatching. Rob and I have been birding for 4 years, attracting birds to our backyard and going on day trips to parks and conservation areas to enjoy the birds. Our hobby really is a labour of love. This past Sunday, we spent an enjoyable hour in the backyard with our feathered friends, both new and old.

I'm ready to feed the birds!

A pair of Northern Cardinals. We're lucky that these beautiful creatures are almost daily visitors, and were the first birds to ever visit our feeders.

A new visitor to the yard, a Pine Siskin.

A Blue Jay way up in the tree.

More Pine Siskins.

Ending the day by making a snow angel.

Oh look at those glorious robins! Beautiful.

And hello! I came here from Teena's blog. I was wondering who was making the snow angel you or her ... I see it was YOU! LOL!

came here from Teena's blog. I live in UK and we only have a small concrete yard with pots but have began to get birds now. They are great to watch but not as exciting as the ones you get. i would love a proper garden
