Here is how I spent an hour today. I ran outside as soon as the sun came out and left when the sun had hidden itself again and I was feeling numb. Required ingredients, warm coat, coffee, chairs, camera, tripod, lots of bird seed, a good book (to prevent boredom while birds are feeling scared of me) and patience. Seen today--robin, starling, junco, song sparrow, house sparrow, cardinal, dove, sea gull. Not too exciting but got a couple of cute pictures of the squirrel raiding the bird feeder. Some to be posted at a later date.
