Day 19 - 19th January 2016 - Juncos, Pine Siskins and Blue Jays

Snowing again...beginning to feel a little like last year - lets hope not.  Think I'll putter around the house, do some cooking - maybe a big pot of chili or soup would be good today and a few hours of research. Will check out the hood and Lois' feeders later.
Turned out to be a nice day - not much in the way of sunshine but clear and not too cold. Although before supper it started to snow which lasted several hour developing into white out conditions before it ended. The birds were busy at the feeders all day - Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, Chickadees, Goldfinches, Purple Finches, Song Sparrow, Chipping Sparrow, Downy Woodpecker, Pine Siskins and the Junco count is up to 6 now. No headway with the grant applications - have to wait until I get secret codes for one so I can proceed. Did a little research but not what I should have - felt like a bit of  a challenge instead.

Pine Siskin and Goldfinch.
These seems to be a favourite spot of the Chipping Sparrow.

A Blue Jay just finished cracking the sunflower seed open.
Another Junco - a lot more brown on this one - female or immature male.

Enjoy your day!
