Check it out all. This is what I got from my mother for Christmas. I sent her the link and told her this was all I wanted. She was dumbfounded at first because she couldn't understand why I wouldn't want a trendy new purse or the latest and greatest perfume from Macy's.
You see it's not easy being a birder in a family whose idea of nature is having a picnic outside. I have always been the odd duck of sorts and things that normal women like, I have no desire for. I don't wear jewelry, I don't get my nails done and I don't get excited over scented candles. Give me a heated bird bath any day and I will be just as excited as if you presented me with a pair of pearls.
I can't wait to plug it in. I am hoping I get a lot more birds than I do now considering I am the only one on my street w/ a heated bird bath. I am going to charge up my neglected camera batteries and start taking pictures again. While I was sick I became very depressed because I didn't get outside at all with my camera. It made me realize how the outside has served as my therapy and has helped to keep me somewhat grounded over the past several months.
It was a good Christmas indeed.
