Family Affair

Taking care of babies is a family effort for the sparrows in my yard. Both Mother and Father work tirelessly to bring in food and clean the nest. They seldom get a chance to rest, stopping only occasionally for a for a quick perch on the garden solar lights. The birdhouse that is their home is “decorated” with a top of a tin can on one side. Why? To keep the local woodpecker from drilling a hole in the side to make it his own.

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United States--a wonderful area for nature, art and culture. Using a compact camera, I celebrate daily life found here in a variety of local landscapes throughout the changing seasons.
