  1. What a beautiful bird and we see so many on our morning walks in the park here in Ottawa. My husband and I love nature and can’t get enough. I just packed away some walnuts and raisins that I had hanging around here for some time and will give it to the birds and squirrels next week.

  2. This morning I went out to the park with my husband and put out a lot of nuts and raisins that I had for the birds and squirrels and put them under an evergreen tree for them. It is snowing out and I think that they would appreciate what I brought them. I love nature very much. We see a lot of different species of birds here in Ottawa and a beautiful place to walk.
