My Dad called me today and was most excited about seeing a bird on his deck.
"It's got a black head, and it's white underneath and the red on the front is like a bib, and that red is the PRETTIEST red that you have ever seen! Do you know what it is?"
My Dad knows I know my birds! It is a rose breasted grosbeak. They don't live in Georgia but at this time of year, you can see one passing through if you are lucky enough. "Stunning", "cannot be mistaken for any other bird" and "like an exclamation mark at your bird feeder"...those are some of the things that I just read about this bird!
Oh! And I also read that their song is like an American robin's but more melodious, as if a robin had taken singing lessons! That's funny. (Sorry, Robs, you know I love you too!)
I really love my Dad's enthusiasm, just like a child's!
Stay young, no matter what your age!
