Saturday and Sunday, armed with binoculars and tally sheet, I took my first official tally for the Cornell Project FeederWatch, and entered the results on the online data collection site. My enthusiastic self-appointed assistant Tuffy joined me on Sunday. I'm sorry to report that he is the main suspect in the untimely demise of one of the subjects, whose remains were discovered shortly after I hung the feeders last week.
My total count time was just over an hour, and the birds observed included cardinals, black-capped chickadees, tufted titmice, nuthatches, starlings, dark-eyed juncos, and downy woodpeckers.
The Heliopath Vest is inching along, and I hope to wear it next week after finding suitable buttons.
Wow, now that I see the Mosaic Blanket in the photograph I can see the pattern and how cool it looks.
I had a Pier One coupon and got some Eiffel Tower ornaments for me, K, and my sisters as a symbol of solidarity against terrorist acts.
