Day 37 - 6th February 2016 - Chipping Sparrow, Mourning Doves and the Lake

Colder this morning  than what we've been used to this last week. The stars are all twinkling in the sky. A little snow overnight but not enough to be troublesome - just a light layer over things. I think it's time for a road trip to Yarmouth, do a little shopping for stuff unavailable locally and some grocery choices. Maybe we'll get a chance to whip around a few spots in search of birds too. Yesterday Lexi and I weren't so lucky in the rain, we got drenched to the skin every time we went out. So I built a fire before lunch and stuck to inside work. A little research, projects and housework. Nothing terribly exciting. It was even raining too hard to photograph the birds through the kitchen window. The Chipping Sparrow is still hanging around. There were a few Juncos, Goldfinches, Chickadees, Pine Siskins, Mourning Doves and Blue Jays. I'm not sure what the problem is but our bird numbers seem to be decreasing this past year. Even in the summer I didn't find the variety of species I usually do in the hood.
 The Mourning Doves like to perch on the wires.

Sometimes the Chickadees aren't in the mood to pose.
 The lake is always pretty after snow, but yesterday I could see it breaking up in places.

Enjoy your day!
