There is no sunshine.
I've seen up to four male cardinals at the feeders at one time,
But can walk to the back of the house
And see as many more sheltering in the brush.
Laura, the Vice-President of Birds,
and I have studied on the cardinals.
They do no care for the fiddly bird bird feeders.
They use the seed blocks or feed from the ground.
Come spring we'll give them another feeder.
There is no use arguing over a "better" place on the thistle feeder,
The finches get along, on the whole.
The world might take a lesson.
The juncos are ground feeders.
Much as I love them, no special ground station for them.
Our raccoons are wiley!
The two metal rods are three foot hooks,
Suspending the feeders.
Finches, juncos, cardinal
At the former stairwell to the garage.
And over here, the path to the woodpile,
Today's accumulation, two inches as of noon,
And no end in sight.
