I've been watching gobs of birds flitting back and forth from the feeders. Every once in a while I have to open the door to toss a handful of peanuts to the squirrel so he drops from the sunflower feeder, though. I also used a large can from chopped tomatoes to toss seed all over the top of the snow, since we have a goodly number of ground feeders. Cardinals and juncos everywhere!

That is a great idea, GG! I've collected pins from each of the National Parks we've visited. I've wanted to get a fabric map of the contiguous United States so I could pin each in the state the park is in. So far, though, inertia is winning.

I also collected pins from the Parks, I found a branch on one camping trip that could be used as a walking stick and have studded it with the pins.

I feed the birds here and most all the winter feeders have moved on. I do have juncos, chickadees, and ruffous sided towhees nesting in the green belt though. Saturday there was a pileated woodpecker calling in the neighborhood and band tailed pigeons in the tree tops. They do come to the bird feeder but are extremely shy. They see any little movement and they're gone.

I haven't seen any birds yet. I have heard a few flocks of geese fly by.

My gang of flying pigs are all hanging around waiting for sunflower seeds. A squirrel just rolled up to the seed dish on the deck. I have well-fed wildlife in the backyard.

The geese should be there soon. I know the little geese from Copper River Delta and the AK swans are long gone.

Yesterday morning at 7 a.m. I was waiting for Spike to pick me up for shopping. Now we have a beautiful maple tree right in the middle o the patio. At this time of year it is full of new green leaves. Even the leaves don't want to come out and show themselves. Too dang cold!

All of a sudden I see a whole flock of Robins land on the ground right in front of the door. I think they were searching for the route back to Florida. I felt so bad for them. If I had the time I would have gone back upstairs and got the rest of an old loaf of bread that was heading for the trash.

What are you doing?

Laundry. Beagle is happily ensconced in the nice warm sheets I pulled from the dryer. I made the big mistake of not folding them immediately.

One day when Teddy was here, I brought up a load of laundry straight from the dryer. Dumped it on my bed and Teddy found himself a nice warm place to take his nap. So much for folding the laundry before wrinkles set in. You go Beagle!
