Beautiful Birds 1/5/14

First let’s flashback to 2012,  “Today’s (Thursday, January 5) photo stars a tiny insect walking on some mullein planted in my yard. It was very warm today and some insects were out and about. This is an Aphid.”

I was also very happy to find a tree a block east of me filled with feeding birds that included robins, starlings and cedar wings enthusiastically feeding.
