|This bird feeder model is called the 'squirrel buster' It will shut down if something the weight of a squirrel is on it. Didn't think I needed this feature but...|
|We have lots of these. Note green bud beneath his tiny foot|
|A pair of goldfinches|
|This guy seems to be missing some feathers at the back of his neck or maybe just his mating feathers are coming in. We have another male who is much brighter than him|
As of yesterday, we've been here 2 months. The house still is not decorated to the degree I would like though I hung a few things yesterday in Steve's absence (he hates when I put things up..easier to do when he is gone) but the old house is the top priority even though dealing with it is not fun at all. Today the building inspector comes to inspect the windows put in almost 2 months ago. We were just informed this was necessary last week. Minor painting done yesterday. Potential outside painter comes Friday.
And again rain. My nice country route will be very slick. I waited awhile yesterday. I heard the peacocks and some cranes, along with the peepers, which I can hear the latter from our house, but could not see any of them.
