Day 364 - 29th December 2016 - Chickadee, Evening Grosbeak and Downy Woodpecker

Wednesday was another quiet day in the hood. Weather has been fairly mild, this morning it's a bit colder at -2.  I puttered around in between being a little lazy and reading. Did get out for a short jaunt. Lexi is making some improvements, but not yet ready to go far from home. Thinking it will be a slow steady recovery or at least that's what I'm hoping. Got most of the gifts out from under the tree yesterday, will take the tree down today or tomorrow.  Looking at the upcoming weather for tonight, think I'll put the tree out tomorrow. We always tie it to the bottom of one of the feeders to offer some added shelter to the birds over the winter months. Tonight they are giving very high winds and lots of rain. Might just charge up a few things and make sure I've got extra water in case of a power outage. At least it will be mild.  I'm slow getting posted this morning - it's busy these days with feeding the girl gourmet food- mixing more of her food in with it and making sure she takes her pills.
 Chickadee - they are so fun to watch as the crack the seeds and then get their prize.
 Female Downy Woodpecker - the love the suet
This Female Evening Grosbeak looks a little curious at the crazy lady with the big lens.

Enjoy your day!
