Day 20 - 20th January 2016 - Mourning Dove, Juncos and a Song Sparrow

Snowing a little and blowing this morning. I don't know why I get up so early on Wednesdays! My town day, although I hate to go knowing the house will be cold again by the time we get home. I've got a late afternoon appointment and other things to do so guess I better. The snowplow has just gone by, it should make the trip back down before we are ready to go. 
A snowy Tuesday. Most all day and at time white outs. Glad I didn't have to go far - just around the hood with Lexi. Did a little research early, then decided since I spend most of the time gazing out the kitchen window at the birds, I might as well do some cooking. Big pot of Chili, Cinnamon Rolls, Biscuits and Breakfast bake. It was mostly a day to take photos through the kitchen window - the feeders were busy. Juncos are up to eight now which is the most I ever had in the yard at one time. It's quite interesting to watch them all.

Most of the small birds like to rest in the fence. The Juncos all look a bit different - some are lighter than others - I assume this is due to age or sex.
The Goldfinches like to perch.

Song Sparrow.

This Junco is so much lighter and browner. Time to do a little more research while I have a flock here.

Enjoy your day!
