Yesterday, at 12:58 pm, the first hummingbird of the year, a male, popped in from 'hyperspace'. Magical creatures. In the hummingbird's backdrop were two vibrant blue-jays, several yellow finches, and a lone woodpecker going to town on a steel beam in the yard—that's got to smart just the tiniest. I often work from the kitchen that overlooks this buzzing landscape and am happily distracted by these visitors.

My work desk looks out on our bird feeders too, and I'm often happily distracted by to comings and goings and feathered antics. Sadly we don't get hummingbirds, but then if we did I suspect I would get nothing done!

I do get lost staring out the window at our flying friends.
