I have been on the road a lot so I haven’t been posting on the feeder activity.
Right now zillions of Robins are moving through, chowing down on all the berries and small fruit from the trees and bushes. They are heading south in great numbers.
There must have been a hundred of them here yesterday.
I am not sure who this is. I think it is Lincoln’s Sparrow on the way south from its summer haunts in Northern Canada. Just one that I have seen so far. [NB: I had meant to write FOX Sparrow. I am glad a commentator jumped in. I think he is right.]
There is a very tony Cardinal-ette hanging out today.
With a little sunlight. Makes you wonder if she uses some sort of mousse.
The birds assure me that they are always happy to take your donations. They eat like starving fiends and I get stuck saying Masses for their benefactors. Sheesh!
Actually, now that I think about it…. everybody wins that way, right?
