Flocking Our Way
I forgot to mention, while I was baking the cookies, and while it was raining fit to beat the band, all the birds that were at the feeder! I haven't seen such a crowd for a long time: a male bluebird and two females, the red-headed woodpecker totally ignoring the suet for the large feeder, the pine warblers back, along with the usual crowd of white-breasted and brown-headed nuthatches, tufted titmice, chipping sparrows, and chickadees—and a male goldfinch in his winter regalia, head brownish instead of bright gold, but still with those stunning black bars on his primaries. They were looking a bit bedraggled from the rain, but otherwise flitted around getting their dinners.
