Day 363- 28th December2016- Red Breasted Nuthatch, Lichen and Bird's Nest

So it's Wednesday, I actually had to check the calendar - one day seems to melt into the next with a holiday or two! Looks like another mild day, easy on the woodpile. The rain stopped yesterday around lunch time and it cleared. Seemed strange  roaming the hood without Lexi, but she just didn't have the energy to do the long haul. Her appetite seems to have perked up and she's quite happy to woof down the gourmet meals I'm cooking for her -boiled hamburger and rice. I mix a little of her dry food in just so she doesn't forget. By late afternoon I could see a bit of improvement in her, she wanted to go out and we walked around the yard - not long or far but it's a start. It's going to take time. Hopefully over the next few days she'll keep improving. Lots of Evening Grosbeaks and Goldfinches around, nice to see their bright yellow popping out of the trees.

The lichen on the trees looks so fresh and green - almost like lettuce.

Enjoy  your day!
