One of the things about my community that is so incredible is, the people! So what does THAT have to do with BIRDS?? Well, it's simple. Elsabe lives in my community. She & I moved to the North around the same time & we became friends :) I might add that Elsabe keeps flying outside to do extremely cool things like playing fiddle on the Fred Eaglesmith trains!! This keeps her in the perpetual role of the "Cheechalko". I, on the other hand, lead a less adventurous life style therefore became a "Sourdough" on day 365!! But I digress... Elsabe is an amazing Birder. You should hear her bird calling!! Knowing that I am nursing twins and relegated to my recliner on gorgeous Yukon days, (the recliner was donated by yet another amazing community neighbour & friend) Elsabe brought over this beautiful bird feeder post & loaded it up with seed! She did this so that I would have something visual & beautiful to carry me away during the long hours of nursing!
Here are the results:)
This is Harry. He stopped by for a quick visit the other day - Didn't stay long but his cheeriness was worth an afternoon of recliner based smiles!
The Red-Poles are migrating right now & my feeder is a fabulous resting spot!
One day last week, there were so many of these little friends hovering & fluttering around the seed sock that they resembled something like a bee-hive! Never have I seen so many birds in one spot. At times, all you could see were feathers & NO seed sock!! Did I have batteries in my camera at the time?? Heck no...proving that many of the Yukon's magical moments are only meant for those of us who dare to live here :)
Thanks Elsabe, you're one heck of a gal!!
