Flyways & FlyStops
This post is inspired by the NY Times article about creating a protected flyway for migrating birds.
All highways and flyways need rest stops. So I decided to turn my little patio into a rest stop for the feathered travelers. All it takes is a bird feeder, bird food and a bird bath. It is such a delight watching them feed, especially early in the morning
While my main guests have been the sparrow, the extremely shy song birds also pay me a visit. Haven't been able to take a picture of them yet. Hope to soon.
