Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

I have a feeder right outside the window over my desk. Between the birds and squirrels feeding there, it empties fast.  In fact it needs refilling now as I write this on a rainy Saturday morning.

The gray squirrel in the neighborhood is the most determined to feed there. 

The red squirrel feeds from the ground..

Chickadees and Titmouse fly back and forth continually.

Below I captured this bird on the feeder in the backyard.  I thought at the time it was a starling but looking at it now I'm not sure. David G - help, please?
