Making Days Count 23
The first thing I thought of today when I looked out at the bird feeder was, "Are the birds getting smaller each day?" There was one lone tiny bird on a branch perched for a long time as if waiting for the rest to appear. I was able to take a couple of shots through the front window. In the photo on the right, I have shown its size in relation to the bird feeder. Each one of those wire square measures one inch. There was not too much activity around the feeders today when I looked out...just as there wasn't much activity going on inside either!
I found the information about the Golden-crowned Kinglet here. These birds are similar to my favorite little Ruby-crowned Kinglet, but apparently are more hardy.
I spent a good portion of the day sorting through paperwork and shredding lots of it in readiness for recycling day tomorrow. It was another grey day, so perfect for such a project.
