It's pouring rain on an everyday basis right now. This morning I ventured out anyway, put on rain gear and walked down to check a flooded area that had a lot of ducks a few days back. It was a bust, so much wind I think the ducks had left for more cover some where else. Back home, and changed out of my rain gear, I decided to watch for birds in our back yard from the cover of our living room. The birds were also seeking cover, multiple Juncos were on the ground feeding under the cover of the rhododendron. A couple of bright male House Finches sought the cover of the bird feeder. In addition a Song Sparrow and a House Sparrow also took turns under the cover of the feeder.
