Today’s picture was actually taken Sunday, before the cows invaded our garden. That was the big news event of the day, so the smaller stories got pushed back to a slow news day, like today. This flock of birds came in and displaced the usual flock of robins that inhabits our front lawn. Where as the robins can be seen yanking huge worms out of the ground, these smaller birds pecked at something smaller. They were quite busy for most of the day and the poor robins just sat on the sidelines and waited for them to leave. I’m not sure if these birds were just migrating through or what. Then yesterday we saw another bird we’ve never seen, we’ve identified it as the little bird with the red head. Maybe we should get a bird book. Ack! We’ve become bird watchers. Next thing you know we’ll be driving around the country in a motorhome with a log book. Or we could just go to Reno on a tour bus.
Ferndale weather report: Sunny days with clear, freeze your butt off nights. I got up before dawn to take some pictures this morning and it was 29 degrees. Ok, so the Seattle contingent is laughing, but that is cold enough to make me think twice about this photography hobby of mine.
