Birds are winged, bipedal, warm-blooded, vertebrate animals that lay eggs. There are around 10,000 living species.
9,999 of them live at my house.
And why not? It’s home sweet home around here for our fair feathered friends, thanks to Mr. Downeastdoingstuff.
Take a glimpse of the structures he provides for them...yes....all out in my yard. sigh.
(just scroll quickly to get a sense of how many there are...)
And, yes, birds do actually nest in most of them
“Fish got to swim, birds got to fly, I got to love one man till i die. Can’t help lovin’ dat man of mine.”
Oscar Hammerstein II from ‘Showboat’.
(Wonder why he’s got a blog where he’s called Birdman?)
