Backyard Birding

With the warm weather, we have had new visitors for the birdfeeders in the backyard. Last weekend, there was an indigo bunting. Now, a pair of Baltimore orioles have taken up residence somewhere close by and visit our suet feeder which is now filled with thick slices of orange. A male rose breasted grosbeak passed through yesterday. And this morning, we had a magnolia warbler.

My Father-in-Law is coming up tomorrow. I hope that they all hang around while he is here.

About Tweed and Briar

I am the pastor of a rather conservative rural congregation. My interests alongside of work are hunting, fly fishing, cooking, and life in an agricultural community. By way of family, I have a wife and two children: a daughter and a son. I am of indeterminate age because my wife is a bit younger than I am and my son is ages with some of my friends’ grandchildren. However, to say that I slip smoothly among the generations would imply an agility which I no longer possess. I aspire to the genteel poverty of the country manse.
