Up-down Friday

Rainy Friday. When it rained I stayed upstairs. When the rain stopped I ran downstairs. Lots of bird activity in the garden. The robins are not our robins from summer. These are the northern robins stopping by for food and rest. Plump robins.  The white throated sparrows have also arrived eating seeds and nibbling on berries.
In the back garden the song sparrows are munching seeds.
And there was the female ruby kinglet, hell to photograph, mostly flitting high up in the leaves.
Kinglet also pecked at berries.
Male and female towhees working the leaves.  They were the biggest treat.
Today will also be a rainy up-down birding day.  This is called elevator birding.
