My Sense Of Fashion Is For The Birds!

Stylish…Eclectic…Fashionable…these are not words you would use to describe my wardrobe this past week.  Come to think of it, they would probably never apply to me!  Still, the freezing weather as of late has left me grabbing jeans, thick socks, the one wool sweater I own (courtesy of my son’s friend who outgrew it), and my fur-lined crocs.  When I head outside to fill the feeders, I add my camouflage coat with the hot pink zipper (camo never goes out of style, right?) and my AquaTech gloves.

The good news is, the birds don’t seem to mind my appearance a bit.  In fact, as long as I keep the feeders full and the water fresh, I’m pretty sure they’d say I look divine.

Today, with the temperatures once again below freezing, there was a constant flurry of activity at the feeders.  The birds, always fashionable, showed up in their feathered finest.  Here are a few that paused long enough for a picture.

I had to include another Brown Thrasher.  He is giving me the evil eye, like I am the paparazzi.
