First Day

Just relaxing here in the living room, watching "my" neighbour birds visit the suet and seed feeders on the porch. Most of the regulars have braved the chill temperatures and made their appearance: Chestnut-backed and Black-capped Chickadees, Red-breasted Nuthatches, Dark-eyed Juncos, woodpeckers Downy and Hairy, Steller's Jays, Spotted Towhees, etc...

New to the feeder, this morning, this winter: Fox and Song Sparrows...

A quiet morning for reflection, cat sleeping nearby in the hazy sunshine filtered through the greenbelt trees.

I have to say I've been pretty lucky this past year working with the Surface group. Such an incredible collection of passionate and knowledgeable people, it's sad to watch such a fantastic page turn not knowing how future pages will unfold. If 2008 was any indication, the world is a better place for these people.

L'Chaim, my friends!
