No secret

It is no secret that I like birds.  Bird watching and bird decorations.
                                                       I have decorated my house with them.

Claire has come to love birdies too.

She tries to whistle (see her lips?) - it is a blowing sound.  She is trying to imitate a bird tweeting.
We had to get out all our birds for her to play with.  Some of the birds can "sing" and it makes her laugh.

Today there are many birds visiting.

The snow doesn't seem to bother them.

My rain gauge is frozen!

There is a little chorus that I learned as a child that I'm teaching the grandchildren:

The birdies on the treetops sing their song
   The angels chant their chorus all day long
The flowers in the garden blend their hue
      So why don't I, why don't you, praise Him too.

In the trees near by, the birds make their nests and sing.
From the sky You send rain (and snow!) on the hills, 
and the earth is filled with Your blessings.
Psalm 104:12,13
