Grateful for little visiting bird.

I have a chicken coop near my back door. There is a little bird that visits daily. I don't know what kind he/she is, but it is small and perky. It comes every day to sit for awhile up on the corner braces. I don't know why. He seems to be surveying his domain. There are no current chickens in there, no food or anything. He couldn't get in there, anyway. I know this is silly, but I always see that bird and pretend that he is visiting me to check on me.

It's plausible. I am hooked on seeing this bird. Occasionally, he doesn't come, and I worry about him. I have thought of leaving him food, but I can't reach up there anymore. So, I am thinking of fixing a table for him. Still a month or so of Winter left. Wish I had thought of it sooner.

our whole married life, it is awesome to see who shows up at times. Right now we are getting a few deer so we are putting out cracked corn...its always all gone in the morning. Please give the little guy some seeds and a drink for us! Thanks for the post.
