Sunday quiz for all. What is the button you normally press in photo editing software to not make pictures so blurry? I am desperate here. Thanks
I cannot believe the amount of birds I have had the past couple of days. I must have 20 house finches, 10 gold finches, a few cardinals, 3 tufted titmice, 2 chickadees, 2 downy woodpeckers, 5 blue jays, a bunch of those darn house sparrows, 3 crows and a flock of seagulls. Yes you heard that right I said seagulls. I was mortified to see them arrive but they couldn't resist the peanut butter toast I put out there for Squiggy and his family. They left after all the toast was gone so I was fortunate. All I could picture was them sticking around all day so people could drive by and realize that yes I am indeed crazy.
I have figured out the water station until I get my heated bird bath this Christmas. What I do is get a gallon of hot water. Pour it on the bird bath and then take a rock and chip away at the ice until it's gone. I pour the rest of the fresh water in and it lasts the birds 2 hours before it freezes up again. I also have one of those flexible Rubbermaid trash container covers that is on the ground and filled with water. This is in full sun all day so it stays unfrozen longer.
While I love watching the birds from my kitchen window, I already miss going outside and looking at them. This is my therapy and it gets me away from the insanity of my house and lets me refocus and put things into perspective. I am hoping it will be a little warmer next weekend so I can layer up and get out there with my binoculars. Until then, my kitchen window will do.
Have a great Sunday everyone.
