Day 358- 23rd December 2016 - Evening Grosbeaks, Cranberry and Icee

Here we are at Friday once again, a few wet snow flurries out there this morning and probably another slippery morning on the roads. Temperature just hops up and down. Thursday afternoon was the same thing - rain/wet snow making for a messy drive.Got everything finished up yesterday but a few floors that need to have the mop run over them. Larry's off today, so later we'll take a run to town, deliver gifts and pick up those last few groceries I forgot on Saturday. Not like we are going to starve, but the birds need to eat and dog food is on the list - will be an expensive trip! The flock of Evening Grosbeaks are growing steadily - I counted 33 yesterday along with Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, Nuthatches, Chickadees and Goldfinches. Still no sign of Redpolls.

Evening Grosbeak
 When a flock of them arrive, they can eat as much if not more than the Blue Jays
Cranberry frozen in time.

Enjoy your day!
