Great story. Have been an avid bird watcher for 46 years. Started at my parents' home in a wooded area. Now my husband and I watch our own birds in our own wooded area. From the little Ruby-Throated Humingbirds to the Red-Tail Hawks, all are welcome. Some of them have been "regulars" for so many years that we've named them. As I told my husband, my best neighbors all have feathers.
