Hidden In The Holly Tree....



We noticed this guy out in the holly tree outside the window... and it was fun to watch him. He stayed on that branch for a bit and I was glad to get some pictures of him.




 The red berries are about all gone off of the holly tree.... before they were gone, the birds would perch in there and eat the berries... and it was a pretty sight. :)

It is amazing to see the birds quickly moving, flitting and flying around. God's creations continue to make me very aware of His creativity. 

It was a nice treat to see this bird today... a cheery sight. God sends those once in a while... and I am so thankful.

    1. The holly tree is right outside the window, so we are able to watch different birds out there... and they feel safe enough,usually, for us to watch a bit. :)
