It’s been a 5 month journey. We decided, well I desired and my hubby agreed, to move back to NY. We had been in Texas for 10 years and I longed for home. Last April the journey began with listing our TX home, packing, planning and waiting. I won’t bore you with the details but we are finally settled into our new home on the north shore of Long Island NY. I just love it, surrounded by trees, vineyards and farms, 5 minute walk to the water and only miles from any store you could possible need.
Those of you that follow this blog know I’ve been hooked on photographing birds for 3 years now. Well I am in heaven…our home is surrounded by big old oak tress and all kinds of new species for me. We are going on our third week in our new home and today I pulled out the camera to see if I could remember how to shoot 🙂 I put out thistle, suet and sunflower seeds last week in feeders and have been greeted by the locals!!! The goldfinches have discovered the thistle and I believe they will be too fat to fly soon!

I will eventually leave my yard, but until then I am so enjoying all the birds that visit daily!
