It seems that the Tumbleweed crossing is a favorite crossing place for migatory birds this years. Maybe it is the water I put out for them or maybe because we had an abundence of wild sunflowers which the birds love for the seeds but I have seen more unusual birds this week that normal. Yesterday there was a small woodpecker of some sort, and this morning there were chickadees scolding me while I was feeding the horses. At about noon there was a roadrunner sitting on the back fence. We see roadrunners but not very often. I would like to see them more as they are very fascinating birds and are, also, the state bird of New Mexico.
