Every now and then one will flash up a tail. I think it freaked out a bit because some Canada Geese that were also hanging out at the feeding spot took off honking. As soon as the geese alerted, up the tail went on one.
One of the young ones that was born last season just sort of stood there like what the heck is all the excitement about.
I am ready for things to start greening up so they will have plenty of food available and I can lay off feeding them for a while. There is just so little for them to eat in the winter that I sort of feel sorry for them and this winter was a hard one. I guess if truth be known, I enjoy just seeing them. They get food, I get to see them up close.
