Hi all, it's me, Kallen!!
HA!! I have felt bad not posting here in a few days but I am very sick. I have a fever of 101 with a sore throat and sinus infection. I am on antibiotics and pain medication so have had very little energy to post.
It didn't help matters much that we received two feet of snow the past three days and the fact that I am only half way done with my Christmas shopping! I am hoping I feel better tomorrow so I can finish that. The house is a mess but that will have to wait I guess.
Despite my sinus infection I have been keeping up with feeding the birds. I have feeders that hold a lot of seed and filled those Friday night and have only had to refill once. Interesting observations. First, I saw no titmice or house finches during the snow. I had a ton of juncos, house sparrows and starlings though. I hate the house sparrows and starlings and it's bumming me out. No lie, I had approx 40 on my tree this morning. Grrr. If I wasn't so sick I would have opened my screen and yelled at them!! The starlings have not eaten much of the suet though and have started to eat the bird food I have out which I find strange.
I do have a new friend who is a song sparrow. I love this little bird and his spunk. He was down on the ground eating fresh seed I put out there for the birds and the house sparrows crowded around him and started to bully him. He flapped his wings and used his beek as a weapon to tell them all of buzz off and they did. Yesterday during the storm he was on my platform feeder with a roof and anytime a house sparrow landed he bullied them off. He is awesome!!! HA
I had four crows spend all day yesterday on one of my trees for shelter. I felt so bad for them that I put out a huge scoop of dog kibble for them and they gobbled it up. I also have a very interesting seagull story to share but I will save that for its own post because I have questions.
Sadly no pictures of any of this. I just didn't have the energy.
I have missed all of my blogging friends so much and will catch up with all of you tomorrow. I should feel better by than because of the antibiotics.
Take care all
