The garage is finished. Yahoo! Dan left yesterday at lunchtime and we spent the afternoon putting everything back in the garage after sweeping up a large pile of drywall dust. The paint smell was still very strong in the garage so we had the window open. I could hear numerous birds so I grabbed my camera and headed outside for a few minutes. This is one of our oak trees beside the garage. It was a very busy place yesterday!
I noticed squirrels, robins, woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees and starlings all up in the branches.
It was a very dull, dreary day but that didn't stop anyone.
This woodpecker was tap, tapping for quite awhile.
The squirrels were constantly up and down the tree adding material to their nest.
It is quite high up in the tree. The wind does blow quite strongly in the winter so I hope they built it well!
I lost count of how many robins were around. I still can't believe how many have stayed this winter.
The goldfinches were enjoying the niger seed too. I am surprised they still are a bit yellow, not totally dull coloured yet.
With the garage finished we are done with renovations for the time being. I think I have said this before!
