Another Sunday of dreary weather.
I have not mastered the art of being warm
while I pose as a statue with a tripod and camera,
All through the window:
A female cardinal
Joined by a blue jay.
Poor jays, they are too big for the hanging feeders,
but not to proud to be the clean up crew.
A male cardinal and a house finch.
Question mark on the finch. I wonder if it might
be a sparrow. We have so many sorts of them.
Last time out I bought "generic" bird seed.
It's in the feeders now.
I actually am being boycotted in droves
by the nuthatches and titmouses
But suddenly I have more than one pair of cardinals
And I have juncos.
I love juncos.
If we can't have penguins in Ohio,
we have juncos.
I was going to give the current lot of feed to the deer
And go buy the good stuff for the birds.
But now I see I should buy that expensive stuff with the
big oily black seeds,
And keep whatever it is now
for the juncos and cardinals.
