I've been sitting here 'watching the world go by' for what seems like the 24th cold rainy day in a row. April and even March were dotted with a few warm days, designed to delude me into thinking warmer weather was really on its way, but I've been fooled. Thank goodness I never tire of the view out the window, though it's not really 'going by', it's just sitting still except for the birds and my friendly little Red Squirrel.

Watching the World go By
The goldfinch was here most of the morning, totally undisturbed by the rain. A Red-winged Blackbird stopped by, a crow, a Junco or two, a Robin, and a flock of those tiny little Yellow-rumped Warblers that never sit still.
A Downy Woodpecker flew in and out, big enough to scare the other birds momentarily, and a Mourning Dove visited briefly. A relatively busy and interesting morning for birds.
And our resident Red Squirrel spent a lot of time on the patio nibbling sunflower seeds before dashing back under the shed next door. It's not disturbed by the rain either.
And the rain continues to fall.
