  • Mood:


Today is sunny and much milder, in the mid-50s.  Most of the snow has melted, leaving the ground squeeshy.

I fed the birds.  Earlier I heard a woodpecker and managed to make visual contact, which is rare -- usually they hide behind branches.  I also saw a squirrel.  After I put the food out, some sparrows came to the hopper feeder. 

EDIT 2/23/21: I replaced the dog dish under the basement drain pipe with one that looks more like a rock.  It took a bit of extra digging to get it placed well, but I think it works.
