Day 25 - 25th January 2016 - Goldfinches, Woodpeckers and Grasses

Here we are at Monday once again and the last week of the month.  So where has the time gone - I'm beginning to feel like I'm not accomplishing much so need to kick start myself. Grant application to do today, maybe start the other one so that stuff can get off my list and I can move on to things I want to do. Will get mobile earlier and hit the hood - although it's usual quiet if I go before 9 am. I much prefer the summer months when birds are up when I am. Exercise class tonight.
We were lucky Sunday and didn't have lot to shovel out - only around 4 inches or less here but much more around the coast. We cancelled our brunch reservations and will reschedule for another Sunday. It did turn out to be  a decent day, I did the normal Sunday lunch box preps, Larry put some more wood in the basement and I checked out Lois' feeders for a bit. Did a couple of pans of brown bread rolls and we went to Bonnie's for supper - great time and celebrated the three upcoming birthdays this week.
Goldfinch - I like the way he has his tail fanned out.
Noon day nap in a tree branch enjoying the sun.
The grasses are laden with snow but still stand tall and strong.
There are always several Woodpeckers at Lois'.
Nice to see the Song Sparrow and Chipping Sparrow tolerating one another.

Enjoy your day!
