Tonight we had a goodbye party at the local frozen yogurt shop for a man from our church who is moving away. I had to leave early and head to my evening book club, and our discussion there was very interesting. I love my two local book clubs. I'm in two online too, but don't participate as much. I usually read the book, but haven't even bothered to comment lately since there isn't as much back and forth. Everyone just answers the questions, but don't really discuss things like you can in person. Our local groups are really small, but we have such great discussions in both of them. Plus, it's a great "adult conversation" break for me. I love my boys dearly, but sometimes it's nice to discuss things with people a little closer to my own age.

The red-winged blackbirds are quite a bit larger than the finches. Here's a good comparison. See the sunflower seed in the black bird's mouth?
Now look at the finch on top of the feeder, eating a sunflower seed a few minutes later. I'm sure that's also why the finches are the only ones to come to the window feeder. It's too tight of a space for the bigger birds.

(Over the last two nights I've figured out that the five year old reacts very badly to something in Caprisun juice bags. Both nights he has gone from being sweet, quiet, and polite, to crazy, wild and out of control within minutes. I think we're going to have to eliminate them. Unfortunately, he loves them.)
The impressive thing was that the 5 seniors that participated were only 10 points apart in their scores. They ranged from 316-326 (but they have to shoot from the standing position, which is much harder, and the junior level doesn't have to do that).
It's dark now, but my kitchen window (on the west side of the house) is completely blocked with snow, and we have a good two inches on the deck, despite the high wind. Springtime in the Rockies :)
