This week has been busy with time spent baking cookies (sampling too), writing Christmas cards, and wrapping gifts. But, it was relaxing to enjoy a cup of coffee early today and watch birds feeding near our kitchen window. Temperatures were in the mid 20s during the early morning so being outdoors was strictly for the birds.
A female cardinal joined a couple of finches for breakfast.
The blue jays never share well and tend to dominate the feeder.
These goldfinches hung on the thistle sock while a junco sat in the old flat feeder.
This nuthatch serenaded most of the morning – loud enough to be heard in the kitchen.
Hope you also find time for some peaceful moments during this busy time of year.
