Day 76 - 16th March 2016 - Evening Grosbeak, Grackles and Cookies

A wet morning, guess it's probably a good day to go to town, although I'll spend most of it wet I'm sure. Errands and volunteer work to accomplish, the time will fly by. Lunch at the Beandock - a good time to catch up.
A grey, overcast day but it didn't start raining until supper time. Lexi and I got a couple of walks in and then it was mostly a kitchen day with a little housework and computer work thrown in. Made up a batch of sugar cookies for the girls, lunches for Larry the next couple of days and a " cabbage roll casserole" for suppers the next few nights.  Tuesday is the afternoon Cathy stops for coffee on her way home and I enjoy our chats and feeding her whatever I've created. She's a good taste tester.  The feeders were busy with bigger birds - the Grackles are growing in numbers as are the Blue Jays. I heard a voice I didn't recognize but only for a few seconds and no sign of it.
Finally a Male Evening Grosbeak arrived, it's been several months since I've seen one.
I still think they are stunning with their colors, even though most of the time they just look black.
Big stretch!
And some Saint Paddy's day cookies.

Enjoy your day!
