Management...A New Meaning


When I worked at the bank, I was in management.  No, not my entire career but rather  three quarters of it.  Learning more than you can possibly imagine about "playing the game", "doing the right thing", personnel and politics, I grew just as everyone did.


Now...

retiring from management has a whole new meaning.







Filling the feeders daily to ensure the locals get what they need to carry on their heritage.



This year, the "Happy couple" spent lots of time together resulting in "young-uns."











Ensuring that shelter is provided to preserve and protect the critters around us, nothing gives me greater pleasure than watching the kids enjoy that shelter and play in their backyard. 









just seeing, saying and sharing...



that it doesn't take much either...some native plants, two old birdbaths, one inherited and one handmade filled with fresh water each morning, some seed in the feeders and sugar-water for the Hummingbirds, and to sit back and enjoy...

In this job and my last I've held management positions and let me say that your kind of management looks a whole lot more rewarding :)

Oh my gosh, you made my day. I too recently came to the conclusion that I had simply moved from managing to managing (bank a/cs payroll, employees to house, yard, meals) But I may have carried my thinking a little too far. I concluded that it is o.k. to come to my desk and spend a few hours. After all that's what I did everyday at the office. At least that was my way of rationalizing that the housework had to wait then, and it can wait now ;).

Nothing better than being a manager in nature. You are doing a fantastic job

Hello, This is my kind of management. I love the Grosbeaks and the Hummer. The squirrel I could do without. You have provided a great habitat for the critters. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

I spent far too many years attempting to manage people but managing the local wildlife is far more rewarding. Well done JP.

What delightful birds you do have in your area and you are looking after them so well.
At our place we get mainly magpies and crows with an odd parrot perhaps popping in and of course there are always the willy wagtails who are a delight to see. With our weather never turning too nasty we only need to supply water during the summer although we do keep it full even in the winter as sometimes we may go a week without rain.

It's a good life to care for birds and animals. Lucky you to have hummingbirds :)
