We've had a few rainy days this past week which have lent themselves to curling up on the sofa with a book and a blanket.
I'm currently reading Poem Crazy by Susan G Wooldridge, have any of you read it?
I've been topping up the bird feeders and there's been quite a buzz of activity lately.
Sunflower seeds are a particular favorite . . . . .
. . . . . as are the peanuts I have out.
Mrs Cardinal has been putting in quite a few appearances too.
I remember seeing a cardinal for the first time in Connecticut, such a pretty sight, especially against the white snow.
This is the first time I've put peanuts out and I'm amazed at how long they last. Seems the birds love them too so I'll definitely be restocking.
The red bellied and downy woodpeckers are frequent visitors and love suet. Unfortunately they have been harder to photograph because the suet is situated by a window with lots of reflections.
Hope you're all having a great week and aren't too stressed out by the pending holidays.
