It is a beautiful day. It's the kind of day we missed in September and October. It was so cold and rainy, and snowy those 2 months it was almost impossible to get those yard things done. We have had some new visitors to our feeders outside the store. Tufted Titmice showed up last week, and a Downy Woodpecker was finally eating from our suet log, and today I went out to refill the tube feeder with Safflower seeds, and there were 2 Chickadees busy eating, and I didn't notice one of them and grabbed the feeder to take it down and he screeched and flew off. It is so interesting to have all this wildlife at our store. We miss all the activity at home, but get to see things down here. Our cat Joy is at the window every day when we come in to work, watching what's going on in the yard. I'm sure we would have many more birds if she wasn't lurking just inside the window. Gearing up for the Holidays has taken up much of our time. A new store brings about challenges as to how to attach the lights to the windows, and just where will the Christmas tree go. It will be here before we know it and boom it will all be over.

Hi, We live in Loretto PA and have seen Downy woodpeckers, Blue Jays and some titmouse and cardinals, but thats about it. We have just started birding and want to know what other species can we expect for the winter? Also, what kind of seed should we be using? Thanks for listening!
