The Little Things in Life

Even when things don’t seem to be going the way you’d like them to go, the little things in life can lift you up and help to get you through a rough patch.  

Birding hasn’t really been great locally, but I seldom walk Theler Wetlands without finding something to cheer me up.  The Marsh Wren’s patch of reeds was nearly totally destroyed by high tides and late snow, but our little friend was still trying to attract a mate to his single nest.

The Song Sparrows don’t seem at all disturbed by the high number of trees that were knocked down by the snow.  In fact, there might be more than ever.

The Tree Swallows haven’t returned in large numbers quite yet, but this bird seemed ready to praise the virtues of Spring.

I was particularly pleased with this sighting of a Red-Breasted Sapsucker, a bird haven’t seen for a few years.

I’m past ready for another birding trip, and my Cardiologist has said I can do anything I feel like doing without worrying (too much) about my recent aFib incident.
