When I want to get out for a little exercise and taste of nature, I walk around my apartment complex at Tantra Lake. In fact I’ve probably seen more beauty in this oasis in the city than anyplace else. Here’s a glimpse of what I’ve seen in the past couple of days:

A week ago I mentioned to my friend Sharon that I would like to put up a bird feeder on the tree in front of my apartment and asked what she recommended. Instead, she came right over with a couple of them. One is for hummingbirds, which aren’t at this elevation yet. I immediately set up the other feeder and the thistle seed that she also gave me to attract goldfinches and other colorful birds. But not until today did any birds discover this bird feeder.

Here is a shot of that first smart bird:
