Morning Birds

I'm in the garden watching the morning parade at the feeders beginning with the most regal, the Great Northern Flicker who prefers to eat alone and then along comes the Downy, the Hairy and the marvelous Red-Bellied--all woodpeckers and all quite a joyous sight. Through the woodpeckers dart the Black-capped Chickadees and a bit later the Purple House Finch, Goldfinch and English Sparrow as the Pigeon and Cardinal eat the fallen ground seed. It is like watching a movie in our back garden. For a moment the 100 degree days and drought can be forgotten by the reality of this moment in our Kansas City Garden.
