Woo Hoo! Four Days Off!!!!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love to cook and don't often have time to do it very much. So I enjoy spending the day in the kitchen, whipping up all of the traditional dishes my family loves.

I brought home some things to work on, but for the most part, I have four days off. On one of those days, I AM going to go birding. I understand all of the ducks are back, so it should be a good time to go to the tank in Lake Wichita Park. I volunteer at Wild Bird Rescue Friday, so that will probably be a good day.

This past week I was in Washington DC--I didn't see a single bird. It didn't help that I was in meetings from 7:30 AM - 9:00 PM, but one never knows. It was cold and snowed a little. My blood is thinning out since I've been in Texas.

Glad your back from The East, and thanks for bringing Juncos to my attention. Since reading your post about them, I've noticed them foraging along the bottom of the Prairie Pathway at River Bend where there is an abundance of this year's dried sunflowers.

Aren't they a treat? Such pretty little birds.
