Sometimes you have to look away from the birdfeeders and refocus as the day is moving on pretty rapidly. I participate in the Cornell Feeder Watch program each year and count the birds that come to my feeders two days a week. I have done this for 10 years and will continue although my eyesight is getting weaker...
But I should look up more often.
The two holly trees that grow near the feeders and provide shelter have leaves covered in white splotches from the birds.
Then I look up even higher.
