This Morning Outside

Finding sustenance in a frozen landscape. In seeds of pigweed, ragweed, beard grass, and wild bergamot. In the larvae of beetles, flies, grasshoppers, and the special group of insects known as true bugs.
How I love to see a little flock of American tree sparrows scuttle in to my feeders, uttering small chirpy squeaks of satisfaction at the feast they discover outside my window.
