These birds have a long term pair bond. They also are extending their range north because of backyard feeding.
You see this bird often flocking with other birds. The reason that it would be easier to feed this way or to overwhelm a single birds defence of an area. They also could flock because they are better able to be aware of an attack by a hawk.
Christian life is much better in a group. We encourage each other and support each other even when we aren't perfect.
Psalm 46:1 "God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble."
Father, thank you for your help and the people you have put in my life to encourage me.
