Seeing a blanket of birds on the front or back lawn is not a new occurrence, but it’s always cool to see, I think. And they are so loud! At first, it sounds as if they are taking over the house, the world. Attack of the birds! Buddy always barks at them. He’s very protective, always alerting us of a car turning in, a stray cat, a skunk or armadillo. Oh, we get some of everything out here. I especially love watching the deer clean up the ground under the pear tree. They are beautiful creatures.
