Spiders eggs and Birdies.
It's still raining and I expect if the sun ever comes out again we'll all be blinded. To be fair though, we did get a wee bit of bright sky a couple of times in this past six weeks or so. Apparently the sale of beer has gone through the roof because depression has set in with a lot of people. The good news though is that the perrinnials are growing like mad.
Another bit of good news. I finally got a picture of the Boreal Chick a Dee that's been coming to the feeders on rare occasions. Seems everytime I go for the camera, by the time I get out with it, he's gone. But not this morning!
Some of the other birds. Lots of purple Finches still around.
There's been a grey Jay coming each day. Another bird I don't usually see often. I figured it was nesting close by. Yesterday evening while I was outside I heard an awful racket like birds screeching. Very concerned, I followed the sounds and was surprise to see up in one of the trees, three grey jays, one seeming to be a young one as it was fluttering its wings and two parents. It seems the parents were bringing the young one nearer the feeders. This is the one that was coming quite often lately.
This I think are spider eggs. They look like small pearls.
