Bird Watching

 

The poet Nikki Giovanni once said that she spent a lot of time learning about bird watching.  Placing these birdbath basalt rocks in my new garden has made me want to do the same. We’ve created our own little aviary hammam out front and when I’m around I try to sit very still so I don’t frighten the winged skinny-dippers away.  Just wish I knew their names.  I’d like to be a better hostess. Any suggestions for beginner bird watching guides?

    • One thing we hoped to do once these two moved to LA was pop down for a quick visit on a moment’s notice. Which we did this weekend. Thanks @sydneypritchett and @dancusworth for giving us such a delightful tour of your Silverlake neighborhood highlights including Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Hollyhock House.” (And yes, that is both the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory in the background—note the relatively clear skies!)
