We know it’s spring in Wisconsin when the orioles and gold finches show up at the feeders.  My camera isn’t good enough to get a closeup of a bird at our feeder but these colorful birds are hard to miss. We also had a red breasted gross beak and an indigo bunting. I love when the birds come back in the spring.birds

I have an affinity for birds  especially their feather, but also I think they are such cool creatures. I live in the country so I come across shed feathers in my rambles or from birds that hit the large windows in our house. Their feathers are so amazing – the design, the color, the texture… Who doesn’t wish they could fly like a bird – well, I guess someone who is afraid of heights, but that is not me. So when I saw this, I had to keep it. I picked up this wonderful photo from Jeffery Foltices photonatureblog. hawkeyecloseup- photonatureblog- jeffrey foltice
