I have been sitting here working on the computer for quite some time now. It's been a beautiful day, so I have had the windows open. As I have been writing, there has been a constant flurry of activity and chirping at the bird feeder that is just outside our kitchen window. Sparrows and other birds are eagerly awaiting their turn at the feeder.
I can't think of any other sound I hear that instantly brings a smile to my lips and joy to my heart, other than hearing the birds. I especially take pleasure in hearing cardinals. They are my favorite bird. What a joy this afternoon to hear the birds.
