"We learned to be patient observers like the owl. We learned cleverness from the crow, and courage from the jay, who will attack an owl ten times its size to drive it off its territory. But above all of them ranked the chickadee because of its indomitable spirit. "
~ Tom Brown, Jr.
These little guys, finches and robins become daily visitors at my home office window once winter settles in and food is sparse. I am always torn between feeding them and inviting mice into the house or at the very least near the house thanks to the seeds they spill. In the end they win and a cup of seed is kept by the window.
