The photos with the birdhouses were taken in a garden next to the Smithsonian's 'Castle'. It is a beautiful area that runs alongside the building. The Starling and Sparrows were taken on our walk from The Castle across to The National Museum of American History.

A bird that always stands in the corner at chess
What bird have we with us when eating and drinking?
