“Why Birds Make Good Neighbors”? Years ago, about ten or so, I began listening to a band called The Rosebuds. They have an album called “Birds Make Good Neighbors” and I absolutely loved the title.
When I was married, I received a bird feeder as a gift. It was an unusual gift, I thought, but after the honeymoon, I decided to hang it up outside my kitchen window. The most amazing thing happened. Birds! Bluejays, Cardinals, Nuthatches, Chickadees, Squirrels, you name it; it attracted the most beautiful wildlife. And from then on, I was a bird lover. Sounds nerdy, but that’s how I put the two together.
