I was concerned that there would be less birds in our area. Considering where we are actually live there are trees surrounding our housing development. There is a large area of timber around the Lake Saylorville and below the dam is forest with many lagoons and timberland areas. We are east and a little south of that dam by 5 miles or less. The adjoining street to the east has an older development of ranch homes of the 60s and that means the trees are fully matured in the area. I can see those trees off in the distance.
Our blue spruce seems to be an attraction for a lot of birds as we can see them flying in and our of the branches frequently. I have yet to get seed up for the goldfinch but they are out there at my feeder now among the sparrows and house finch. There are no juncos in this area.
On to the future, we are tossing things again from a storage closet today. The good news for our sons is that I found legos in that closet and a couple of Star War toys that held the figures from that show. I didn't know for sure what was in the closet but when we moved the boys out of there room there toys became the bottom layer of things in the closet. Our suitcases and gift wrapping materials seem to fill in on top of all of it. I am finding that we are moving more toys that we intended to do.
It is a cloudy this morning and cold. The guy on tv says we will be 62 degrees F. today with a lot of strong winds. The windchill will make it seem like winter again. I hope all is well with all my blog friends and family. Thanks for stopping by today.
