Future Sunday Adventure?

As I’ve shared before, Motor Man and I take his mother (Motor Mum) to lunch nearly every Sunday. Afterward, we take her for a ride or off on a little adventure.

Recently I was in our local pharmacy, and the pharmacist, who knows Motor Mum, inquired about her. I shared with her that we were always in search of a new adventure. She asked if we’d been to Wild Birds Unlimited. I was familiar with the shop, but hadn’t been in our local one. The pharmacist told me that they have a little deck off to the side of the shop, where you can sit and bird watch.

Motor Man and I were in the area yesterday after dinner, and we decided to give it a “trial run”.

The shop is located in a commercial area, but there’s a residential development directly behind it.  There are flowers in colors meant to attract birds, especially hummingbirds.

Comfy rockers await bird watchers.

While an employee attempted to “shoo” away the invasive blue jays and house sparrows,  blue birds came to feed just a few feet from us. (This photo was taken with a zoom lens (they weren’t quite this close.)

There is so much to see in the shop itself: bird seed, bird baths, bird feeders and yard art. (I did quite a bit of window-shopping.) The employees were very welcoming and urged us to bring Motor Mum in for a visit.

Yes, I do believe we have an idea for a future Sunday adventure.

    How wonderful that Wild Birds Unlimited has this lovely spot for birding watching. I will have to investigate and see if any of the stores here have a spot like that. I am sure Motor Mum will enjoy it.

    Sorry bird watching.

  12. Beautiful! We love to feed and then watch.

  13. Wow! Our Wild Birds Unlimited has nothing like that, Dianna. I could sit in those red Adirondack chairs all day and watch the birds…my kind of therapy! I think MMum will love it! Don’t forget to bring your camera…I know you won’t. 🙂

  14. What a remarkable place! I think Motormum will love it! 🙂

  15. That looks like a peaceful place to just pull up a rocker and enjoy nature for a spell. 🙂

  16. I love Wild Birds Unlimited, that’s where I buy all my seed, feeders, everything. I’ve not seen one with a bird-viewing area, though. That’s a nice touch.

  17. What a charming place Dianna! Love that red chair❤️❤️❤️❤️
