We are still waiting on the electrician to do the final hook-up of everything and the inspector to do the final inspection. It is so cold here again that the siding on the coach-house will have to wait. We did pick out the garage lights which will be installed by the electrician if he ever gets out there.
I took this photograph from the kitchen window looking down to the feeders. They are all tucked in amongst the Fir trees and too far to really enjoy from the house. I can see the birds but for the warmer days I have placed some benches amongst the trees. There was no sitting around today. As soon as I am settled I will add some feeders close to our garage where the cats and I can enjoy bird-tv from inside where it's warm.

In two days, four suet bars were eaten and the feeders completely emptied all but some mixed seed. Zowie - these guys are hungry. I headed into what will soon be our new town and filled up on seed and suet to have on hand at the carriage house. Boy, will this store get to love me. They'll know me by my first name in no time. :) They had a well-stocked bird section and bulk seed for sale which I prefer to the bagged stuff. Lots of suet, too.
They'll just have to have the commercial bars this week as there is no extra time allotted for home-made. I'd better not find any birds picketing when I arrive.
Tomorrow will be a little warmer so perhaps I'll catch that new visitor in a photo for you. Right now I want a cup of hot tea while someone is off in lala land.
