a bird in the hand

Early this morning I saw a blackcapped chickadee, a bluebird, and a robin in my backyard. 

I didn't have my camera, dang it.

I adore chickadees.  A few years ago I spent a lot of time trying to render a good felt version, but they never came out quite right. 

If I didn't have children and a cat, I would keep pet birds.

I am concerned that the cat is going to start up her hunting craze again.  Last year she killed eight little birds.  I have tried putting a bell around her neck, but she always manages to take it off.
