Breakfast time has turned into early morning birdwatching. The nugget has the best seat in the house.
He sees things we don't even see - the bird sitting high up in the branches of the dying tree and the cat lying in wait, hoping to catch something. And he watches. He watches it all.
By simply placing a bird feeder in front of the window, he learned the words: vogel (bird), baum (tree) and blau (blue, because of his favorite bluebird).
