A nice but chilly day. We decided to go to Glovertown, 14 klms away as I had once again run out of sunflower seeds and suet blocks. The birds need the fatty foods to keep warm on the cold nights we're having now. After buying the bird food we decided to drop into the Goodwill and have a poke around. Himself headed for the mens department and I spied boxes of xmas decorations on the floor. While going through those, I hear him say, "What do you think of this." omg, he had on a jacket of the most blasting, brilliant yellow colour I'd ever seen. "I hate it" says I. "You don't like it" he says with a crest fallen face, "Why?" I say, "It's the most awful thing I've ever seen." Then he comments "Well, if I ever got lost, I'd be easy to find." Off he went again. I saw a coat that looked quite nice so tried it on. It didn't suit me at all so put it back on the rack. Then as I was putting my jacket that I had worn there back on a voice besides me says "What are you getting that for, you already have one just like it." Tut, tut, and rolling of eyes. lol. So, we come away with the great yellow jacket and a glitzy tree top with coloured lights that I found.
Got back home and filled the feeders. The little chick a dees know that when I take down the sunflower seed feeder that it's going to be immediately filled up so many were waiting on the branches. As I was bringing it back to the tree they were jumping on it and taking seeds while it was still in my hands. Once the suet blocks were in the cages and put back up the woodpeckers started arriving.
Pictures of Gulls that I took on the way.
My first attempt at getting a bird in flight and was so excited that I missed his bottom half, lol.
