A nor'westerly wind is blowing this morning, stars are hidden behind dark clouds in the sky. As always I'm up earlier than I want to be. Not really sure what's on for today, I have to do some cooking - lunch box stuff. There is a breakfast at the Fire Hall in Ingomar we like to go to but, Larry also wants to make a trip in the opposite direction to Little Harbour, so not sure I want to spent half of the day driving. Little Harbour would mean birding as we could detour to Hemeon's Head. I guess we'll just wait and see where the day takes us.
We headed off to Yarmouth yesterday morning to begin the Christmas shopping. Must say I made a good stab at it. I'll only need a couple more trips out and some local shopping to finish it up. At least the pressure is now off. Some day soon I'll dig out the wrapping paper and start on that job. It's just getting things underway, then it's not so bad. The Red-Winged Blackbird was back in the yard yesterday morning before we left, the two Grackles, some Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, Chickadees and Juncos. There is a Golden Crowned Kinglet flitting around with the Chickadees, but as of yet I can not get a good photo of him. Patience.
Enjoy your day!
