Ellen Hudson hadn’t really thought much about the birds for years, many years. But, when the coronavirus pandemic forced her to stay close to home and her backyard became a bigger part of her daily existence, the Harrisburg woman gave the avian visitors another look.
“Before I was married and started a family, I remember birdwatching quite a bit. I even made some trips to places in Pennsylvania that are known for their birds, like Tinicum down near Philly and Lake Erie,” she recalled.
“I’m sure I pointed some birds out to (my daughters) sometimes while they were growing up. But I wasn’t focused on birdwatching for a long time.
“Then, with the stay at home orders and all, I try to spend some time every day in the backyard and I started noticing the birds again. I’ve even seen an indigo bunting and I think a couple orioles.
