Today Bird Boy and I did a CBC in West Seattle. It was drizzly and windy i.e. not so great for bird watching but we still saw some nice birds (wait, there is no such thing as a non-nice bird. I digress) including Fox Sparrows, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Downy Woodpecker (male), Killdeer, Spotted Towhee, Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets and lots of CROWS. I could watch crows all day.
The snow is slowly melting and I was able to drive today. Now I must figure out finding a job for the spring, putting my birds up for the molt (not till March), getting a new computer, grad school and other wonderful things along those lines. Sometimes it's so much to think about that I ignore all of it. This morning I thought about all of it for a moment but decided that watching the golden and yellow striped bamboo blowing in the wind had much more to offer.
