Now that our snow is gone the birds are back. There is one little bird that has been here all day just waiting for her spouse to show up. Now you ask me....how do you know is it a "she". Well let me tell you... she sits one place and then flies to another and sits there. From there she flies to the bird bath and sits there, sometimes lands on the grass and sits there. She will maybe fly away for a few seconds and then is back again. Just waiting and waiting.
Now you know if this were a male bird, he would wait maybe 10 minutes at the most and then fly to the nearest watering hole and stay there thinking, "the hell with it".
