I must apologize for not keeping up with all the blogs that I normally follow recently, owing to the fact that I’ve been unwell for the past couple of weeks, so much so that we had to cancel a family get-together at Easter and a trip to Utah to visit our youngest daughter and her husband (something we had been eagerly anticipating) all of which has left me feeling rather ‘down in the dumps.’ However, it did give me the opportunity to sit for many hours looking out of the window and apparently I’m not the only one missing in action. I’m sure someone must have been looking for this zebra finch which evidently had escaped from somewhere. As far as I know it’s not native to the Chicago area or even America.
I also spotted another bird which, to the best of my knowledge, hasn’t visited us before. I think it’s a nuthatch but perhaps someone could confirm that or correctly identify it. I hope to get back to reading all your posts soon and catching up with the latest news. Best wishes to all.
