7 Jan., 2010 -- It's for the birds

Newbie flyer at the feeder... red wing blackbird.
The doves just hang around, picking up a little corn now and then.

The cardinals, on the other hand, aggressively compete with the
sparrows and juncos for those sunflower seeds.
They all are all fluffed up today, braving that cold wind.
Wind chill about 3 below, wind gusting to 30. Iowa's got it worse!

Inside, the jewel orchid is still blooming.

The air is so dry, this orchid has put out hundreds of aerial roots, looking for moisture.
And in the veggie cupboard, the turnips were sprouting, so I put them in the west window
where they could soak up some late afternoon sun.
