    Chirp Chirp

    I like bird watching. I think it's kind of entertaining and fun to sit on my porch, rocking in my rocking chair and watching the birds fly around, eat their feed and chirp their hearts away. Birds are very beautiful creatures and bring such a great deal of 'singing' to the world...
