One of the great things about this new place which I didn't forsee is the bird watching! I have lots of large windows flanked by tall evergreen trees, and look right into the heart of their branches. The squirrels make flying leaps from higher locales onto branches just outside the window. I've seen lots of robins, sparrows, and a rosy, streaked bird I don't recognize. Also a pair of brilliant blue jays and a mourning dove. There are plenty of others but they flit around so quick I don't get a good luck (much less a photo!)
WWII era, German-made. Picked them up in an antique store many years ago.
