At my age, 50 something, I thought I pretty much knew what I liked and what my interests were. However, 2010 brought me a new awareness of birds. It started with a hummingbird feeder, progressed to ground feeding quail and last week I felt like I was feeding every bird that lived in Skull Valley, Arzonia. We had a cold snap with about six inches of snow.
I kept myself busy keeping feeders full, the ground under the feeders covered with seed for the quail and the humming bird water melted. I put out suet and peanuts for the bluebirds and cardinals.
