Eat Up!
The birds must be really hungry...they are out there in the rain before the larger storm approaching, wildly zooming at the feeder and the suet. The usual crowd—brown-headed nuthatches, tufted titmice, chickadees, white-breasted nuthatch, sparrows, "Mrs. Downy" (the female downy woodpecker)—are there along with pine warblers, a female cardinal, and a male and a female bluebird. A thin line of showers has just passed, but the bulk of the storm is still creeping southeast; shouldn't take long for it to be here, since it was passing Acworth the last time I checked the radar. As an antidote to the gloom I have the shades up, a café au lait candle going on the stove, and the little fall houses on the mantel lit along with the electric candles on the table.
