Then I forgot about it.
Shady back yard, grey day, through double window. The view from my desk.
I looked up from my desk yesterday, and there, just a few feet from me, a chickadee was examining the birdhouse. He (she?) hopped inside, outside, back in, out, checked out the roof, went back inside and rooted around, then finally left to get a snack at the feeder.
Never take a photo at dusk from inside a lighted room.
I grabbed the camera and fired off a half-dozen shots, without waiting to set up the lighting. At least I got a record of the event.
"Hmmmm. And the sunflower seeds are just over there..."
I was out today, so I don't know if he came back. If he does, and decides to move in, I'm going to have to leave the table as is all summer. If not, I think I'd better get busy installing that floor.
