Cardinals, chickadees, red-winged blackbirds, and doves are some of the birds that fly to my backyard feeders to feast on sunflower, millet and other seeds. Every day a big gray furry bird with a long tail and big dark eyes visits the feeders to devour the sun flower seeds. There are conflicts between the feathered birds and this marauder. The blackbirds often chase the stubborn intruder away. At times I find it more entertaining than TV and an escape from watching the horrible news stories. Nature brings me peace and tranquility. The world might be a better place if people would take time out to immerse themselves in nature.
