I'm missing my crazy, funny mockingbirds --- my favorite local bird --- for the last couple of years! They've always entertained me and kept me laughing as I work in the garden. Lately, they're conspicuously absent.

Here this morning. December 7, 11 degrees F, sunny, with about 8 inches of snow on the ground. Heard a robin, though they don't come to the feeder. On the feeder Eu. Dove, House Sparrow, Junco, Finch. Magpie, Starling.
Saw a bald eagle fly overhead yesterday! There is a wooded area a mile away and a nest has been spotted there. Eagles will be cleaning up old nests and building new ones soon, they will begin laying eggs late February!
I am sure we all have birds in our gardens. They may be a help in catching bugs, They may also peck on your fruits at times. I guess we just have to put up with them? Here the Magpies have built some nests in my trees.
Today coming to the bird feeder: Junco, Magpie, Starling, RW Blackbird, House Sparrow. House Finch.
