...and I answered emails and shoveled. Long story short: the Rustic Bunting is still here and still looks healthy, but its visits are far less predictable than they were earlier this winter.
Hats off to Glen for feeding the birds and keeping the bunting's feeding areas clear when we've been absent.
Harvey took these photos today. The first photo shows the long nails that a biologist had commented on when he was here to see the bird. And look at that tidy vent!
