Rex, 12/5/12

Just have to let you know how much pleasure we are getting from our yard as the landscape matures (!) and the birds are coming through. This morning we had a townsend's warbler—first time I've ever seen one. Also have had red-breasted sapsucker, downy woodpeckers, black grosbeak in addition to pine siskins, varied thrush (just came back, loves the leaves we gathered and spread around), goldfinches (lesser and american), yellow rumped warbler, Anna's hummingbirds (they'll rest 3 feet from us now), juncos, jays, house finches, flickers, etc. Also have mushrooms sprouting and our snag is quite the attraction for squirrels to sit on (a friend brought in a 6 foot cedar stump from centralia. We planted it in the backyard and attached moss and licorice fern. Quite handsome.)
