My Grandma

My grandma loved watching birds. I have often thought of getting a martin house in her honor, but have so far settled on simple bird feeders. It often gives me occasion to remember my grandma and being at my grandparents farm house. I thought I'd share with you a new bird that I saw today. When we got home from AWANA camp there were at least 6 or 7 of these in my flower bed under my bird feeders (my feeders happened to be empty..I can't seem to keep enough food in them these days). I had to look it up because I don't think I'd ever seen one before. I'm pretty sure it is a white-crowned sparrow and they are most likely migrating. According to my book they live in the south in the winter and breed in Canada in the summer. They are just passing through and found my feeder helpful on their journey.

Our neighbors have a martin house right next to our backyard fence. We can see it from our dining room table. It really reminds me of Grandma.
