The Pleasure Of Feeding Birds

   I went to my Mum and Dad's house today and my Mum and I sat watching the birds on the feeder outside her window for a long time. Her big hospital type bed is by the window and I can't begin to tell you the pleasure she get's watching all the birds. She know's them all and tell's me they have set times when they come throughout the day. I found that very interesting as when you only watch them off and on you aren't really aware of this. She said one thing that makes her sad is she sees the robin fly out of the hedge but it can't get on the feeder so just goes down to the floor, out of sight, to eat the seeds dropped by the others. She said she would love to watch it eating too.
  It's her 91st birthday next week and I'm going to the garden centre before then to see if I can buy a bird feeder like we have with a little platform for birds like robins or blackbirds. I'm so pleased I have thought of something she would like as I was struggling for ideas before. I really hope it works.
