Counting the Industrious

Today is a slow day; Bronwyn is having a few more seizures than normal, and so we are spending a lot of time on the couch. Luckily we have a large picture window nearby, and we can look out and see the birds flitting, flying, and feeding! So far, I've seen these birds:
Black-capped Chickadee
Red Breasted Nuthatch
Red Shafted Flicker
American Goldfinch
Ruby Crowned Kinglet
Glaucous Winged Gull (seagull)
Scrub Jay
Stellar's Blue Jay
Red Breasted Robin
House Sparrow
Purple finch
Rufous Sided Towhee
Our soundtrack this morning is: Rory Block's "I'm Every Woman," Eric Bibb's "Get on Board," and now Cathy Fink's "Banjo Talkin'" All of these courtesy of my fabulous Step-Father-In-Law, Rik, who understands my need for tunes.
Have a blessed day; we will do the same. And Merry Christmas Eve.

Maybe I need to walk over there for birdwatching. We get lots and lots of chickadees at our feeder and robins in the yard but I have yet to see any of the others--or maybe I don't know what to look for.

Our soundtrack this morning: Nickel Creek.
