Slow and Cold
I have the regular birdfeeder visitors coming to our deck gourd feeder. In addition to the wrens and the white-crowned sparrows and juncos, there are tufted titmice and white-breasted nuthatches that visit regularly. They are my favorites and seem to be very hard to get pictures of. I did get one passable picture of the titmouse. We do not feed birds a lot. We only put food out when it is very cold, or icy, or snowy. I also like to feed in hanging feeders that discourage some of the lazier birds.
I am glad it is still mitten weather. I am always more motivated to make hats and mittens when it is cold.
