Super slow bird watching week here. Just full of the blahs, really. Flat tire, out of bird seed, and did I mention it started raining on Tuesday night. And continued the entire day on Wednesday? Add wet basement floors (almost a very minor basement flood) to the list.
So, I didn’t do much bird watching during the week.
Yesterday, the sun finally appeared again making things dry enough for a walk around the block with my youngest son.
No geese within view around the pond at the end of the street. Though we did hear a few. Mostly we saw squirrels scurrying around. Coming around the bend to return to our street, we noticed the corner neighbors added a bird bath outside their newly built privacy fence. (Hopefully, it was built to contain small children and not because of nosy neighbors.)
Probably wished his bath were on the other side of the fence! He does look rather annoyed.
Tires replaced on the car yesterday. Perhaps, I’ll finally get out and replace my birdseed later today. Thinking it really is indeed time to scale back the feeders to one finch feeder and set out my hummingbird feeder finally.
I’ll end here by sharing the little tune that sprang into my mind watching the robin in the bath.

(We did spot our usual backyard visitors during the course of the week: tufted titmouse, grackles, downy woodpeckers and red-bellied woodpeckers, chickadees, blue jays, starlings, cardinals, sparrows, and house finches. Not many out there today with the empty bird feeders.)
