A Random Act of Kindness

What a beautiful weekend. Hard to believe it's not even March yet, feels so much like spring. We could still be in for a nasty surprise but let's hope not. The dogs couldn't believe their luck because they got several long walks. A path I like to take goes through a small woodlot and someone put up a couple bird feeders. Since I can't have a feeder at my home, (due to bird-dogs) I thought I could take some seed and make a contribution to the wild ones in my community.
Don't worry, Lindor got her walk in also. Sometimes I like to take them one at a time so they can enjoy the route.
There is a lovely little brook babbling along and when we approached the feeder area, I was thrilled to see a pair of my favourite cardinals.
I just had my little point and shoot but if you look very closely you can see the speck of red in the branches.
Once I filled up the feeder, we went down the trail aways and stopped to look back. The cardinals swooped down, a Blue Jay and of course the brave Chickadees. Hopefully the birds enjoyed the snack and it will get them through these last days of winter.
