They flock to the feeders every day, feathered creatures crowding together to enjoy my offerings of bird seed. Cardinals, Chickadees, Titmice, Wrens, Finches, and Robins with a few Mockingbirds joining the fray.
I love watching them from my window as they hop about my bird feeder and on my lounge chairs and in the yard where I scatter cups and cups of food.
I need to get more food for the crowd of birds that visit because I ran out today. I missed them, but a few stopped by to see me. I try to get their pictures. Sometimes, I am lucky. Other days they all lift up into the air and fly away.
Crowds of mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers. I love the light colored mother Cardinals the best. Their bright mates always join them and bring amazement and beauty to my backyard.
Feathered Creatures Great and Small Still Grace My Yard
Now, two years later my yard is still full of birds. Not much has changed. I believe descendants of the beautiful cardinals I saw this day long ago visit my bird feeders today.
We even had a beautiful hawk land on our back shed. He graced me with his majesty. He sought to turn my parakeets into food, but could not gain entry into our parakeet sanctuary.

This post adapted from one originally written for the Five Minute Friday community in 2014 which was then headed by mother blogger, Lisa Jo Baker. That week’s prompt: Crowd.
I rewrote portions of the post and added new pictures for the THE MARCH SOLSC! #SOL16,
I will also join several of the hops listed on my Link-up Parties page.
