Sometimes I wish I had my friend Sue from http://proseccoandpolkadots.blogspot.ca/here to identify the call of the birds that is like music to the ears each morning. After coffee is poured, I open the kitchen window and am serenaded by the birds amongst the maples making their presence known. Some I know, some I don't. It is such a nice welcoming to a new day.
There is a flock of juncos that have decided to stay awhile and enjoy their free meals at the feeders. They are grey with a white chest and their tail is fan-like when they lift off. They are a nice addition to the crows, blue-jays, cardinals, downy wood-peckers, gold-finch, wrens, sparrows, starlings & chickadees.
The kitties are hoping for more sun as they miss their sun-puddles and the extra activity at the feeders.
They are spending more time this week snoopervising in the garage.
Annie spends her day watching over old Kane. She is 'little Florence Nightingale' in a cat costume.
She always has to be caring (in her mind) for an oldster, but in this case, Kane would rather she just go and find a ball to bat. He doesn't care too much for cats. haha!
It is raining again today so I am hoping the burn ban will be lifted soon so we can continue to clean up the grounds. It is frustrating when we are here to work but our hands are tied.
