The weather has been mostly mild here. It rained today. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a large flock of sparrows, a large flock of mourning doves, several dark-eyed juncos, a downy woodpecker, and a squirrel. Cardinal Pridefest: at one point I saw at least 4 male cardinals in the forest garden with no females in sight. :D There were females at other times during the week, though.
