Day 80 - 20th March 2017 - Evening Grosbeaks, Mourning Dove and Downy Woodpecker.

It could be an April Fool's prank if it was April 1st instead of the 1st day of Spring. Lots of snow out there this morning. Well the Irish would call it Sheila's Brush or Sheila's Broom. That's a snow storm which arrives on the heels of St. Patrick's Day. Myth says it's Patrick's wife, mother or sister sweeping the old season away. Rumored to be the last big storm of the year. Seems we had more snow than rain.  Larry has emptied the woodshed out - it's all in the basement now, fingers crossed winter soon comes to an end. Seems we went through a lot. Sunday was a day for working around the house although I didn't out do myself as I wasn't feeling right up to snuff. Cold chills, headache, this morning my stomach is rather wobbly. I might just end up back in bed or on the sofa. Really not feeling very good. Hopefully it's not a "man cold".
The Christmas tree was full of Evening Grosbeaks yesterday before the storm started.

A few were sharing a feeder with a Mourning Dove
Downy Woodpecker - no idea why they are always so interested in the metal feeder post.

Enjoy your day!
