SECOND SUNDAY’S BIRDS – Marilyn Armstrong

We filled the feeder yesterday and the birds scattered. I was pretty sure they’d be back today.

Boyoboy, were they back. It was like a bird festival out there. Every bird in our woods was trying to knock every other bird off the feeder. They do play a feathery version of “king of the feeder.” However, when the woodpecker showed up, they gave a collective sigh and waited until he’d eaten his fill.

I haven’t even processed half the pictures I shot so they will show up later in the week. We still haven’t had any snow, but I think before the month is out, we’re going to get hit by something. So far, all the storms have been south of here and gone out to sea, or in the north while we got rain.

He likes to circle the feeder to make sure he gets a little of everything

So we shall see. I gave in and I ordered a bigger cover for the car. We need a garage, but lacking one, we need something more than just a windshield cover.

It’ll take two of us to get this one on the car. It looked really easy in the online instructions, but I have a feeling it’s not as easy as it looks in their video. Meanwhile, our birds will be fed. That makes me feel better. I always felt bad for them when the weather got really bad.

    1. They do. But I didn’t take any pictures today because I had to clean the room and by the time I was done with that, I had a doctor appointment, then had to pick up prescriptions. Followed by unpacking, making dinner, eating dinner — did I mention feeding the dogs? And now it’s late and finally, I’m back at the computer. Sometimes, there too much stuff and too little day. This has been one of those.
