January 6 – Mostly Magpies

It was cold today, starting at zero degrees, going down to -5 degrees and then inching its way back up to about 13 degrees. I spent the entire day at home glued to my computer, doing client work and going through more photos from last year, but every now and then I peered out the window. The trees in our yard are now mostly cleaned of rime ice.

Most of the time most of the birds seen out the window were Black-billed Magpies flying about, eating, chasing each other, perching and staring around.

Other birds included four Pine Grosbeaks, a Black-capped Chickadee, a Hairy Woodpecker and a handful of Common Redpolls. Although the magpies often, including today, sit on the porch railing next to the peanut butter log and eat peanut butter, I was not able to get a picture of that today.
