...so I went about my day...DANG that weather man I ought to string him up ....it got cold and windy but not till late in the afternoon...Im pretty sure we would have gotten in a good day before the front hit....anyways I did a litte birding around the house before errands. The Junco's are still hanging around here..
|white throated sparrow|
One of my favorite singers...he has about every shade of brown in his feathers and the yellow lores are a nice complement to his coloration. They usually scratch around on the ground, but I notice more and more they are taking a turn up on the feeders. They normally leave us when its time to breed.
The ever watchful and defending Northern Mockingbird was close by, he seemed to be saying "These berries are MINE"...
A northern cardinal really stood out amongst all this bleak grey n white February woods....we have had a good bunch of Cardinals this winter..males and females, they will breed here.
Then had to
Goodale State Park
Then the weather changed up-- you can see the ripples in the water and it did get quite unpleasant with that cold wind so I didnt hang around..
I found a few items to add to the Dixxeland Express today....a wrap around screen for the 10x10 canopy, a folding "tailgate party" table, and some solar party ligths---one more thing I need now is some "grass Carpet" a 10 x 10 foot piece I am looking for a really cheap one that I can fold up IM getting so excited---i did find a multi colored cheap rug and I'm pondering that one...
ITS almost time for a road trip. I am noticing gas prices are on the rise again. ;0/
OH and a red shouldered hawk is attempting to build a nest in a tall pine near my yard...IF she continues I hope to be able to record some of her comings n goings...she may be faking it tho so we'll see...last weekend she was sqwaking and making a ruckus and found a good spot in a tree...
