Jenny Brausch performs bookkeeping services for Benton SWCD. Her husband, Dee, works for Oregon Department of Transportation and, like many of us, started working from home this week. They have a room in their house setup as an office because Jenny works from home regularly. Her husband doesn’t have a dedicated space so he’s been using their living room, which faces their big bay window. The window looks out into their side yard that is somewhat of a bird sanctuary. They have bird feeders, native plants (red flowering currant, vine maple, fawn lilly, etc) and other non-natives. They’ve been trying to put in plants and habitat that birds will enjoy. As Jenny says, “It’s a work in progress.”
Since Dee’s been home he gets to see the regular bird traffic and since he’s a photographer he set up his camera with zoom lens on a tripod to catch pictures of them. The slideshow above is a collection of photos of his “workmates” that dropped in on March 23rd. It’s just one day of visitors! Pretty amazing and a beautiful, uplifting sight. Dee and Jenny, and the staff at Benton SWCD with whom they shared this slideshow, hope you enjoy!
