Yeah, I just got Internet service! My computers are up and running! It's a beautiful sunny autumn day here in New England, but I am busy unpacking boxes and cleaning the apartment. I bought a garden hook for my feeder's yesterday and I am now searching through boxes for the feeders themselves. This is taking me way longer than I want it to. I am adjusting to my new nest for now.
So far each morning I awaken to the calls of blue jays. Sometimes I hear nuthatches honking from the nearby trees. There are trees everywhere, oaks, maples and evergreens, birches, poplars and more. I will have to learn the names of some of them. I am enjoying the coolness and the green.
It has been my misfortune to be sick all this week, so it had been a bit of a difficult transition. At times I have been overwhelmed and broken down and cried. I feel I am on the upswing now and I hope to take a walk sometime this weekend and leave the boxes to fend for themselves. I have discovered a swamp or bog less than 1/4 mile from my house with tons of birds. I went there last week before I moved in and saw woodpeckers, sparrows, and warblers and even a lone eastern bluebird!
Back to work for now but hopefully I will be posting on a regular basis again soon and visiting everyone, old friends and new that I have missed. I have so much catching up to do!
Oh, and there will be pictures again soon!
