Do you see what I see??

THIS is why I don't have a dishwasher in my home.

Yesterday as I was getting dishes ready to wash
I saw this directly out the window.

Tis a Merlin Falcon, sitting in the Hickory tree above 
the bird feeders..If I had a dishwasher, I'd miss these

It was cold & snowy I took the pic THROUGH the window
didn't even try to go out.
I can't believe how good the picture is.

I did not see him grab any dinner (usually a small bird)
but I know..Merlin's have to eat too..why can't
they just eat MICE???

Nature always thrills me..
did I tell you ??Rich has given my a Native American name
Waves at Wildlife

It suits me fine..I wave at deer, fox, turkeys, anything that will
look at me

fondly, deena

You know you can still look out your window if you have a dishwasher. It says so in the manual. ;)

I am not sure how I stumbled on your blog, but am glad I did. I also love to watch wildlife. I hope you recover quickly.

What a beautiful bird! I was just thinking we need to go bird watching soon. With no leaves on the tree it's the best time. :0)
Have a wonderful week!
