Mag Pie Visitor

This one MagPie is visiting quite often now. It loves that suet I put out for the birds. It's gobbling it up as fast as it can. Whew, I won't be able to afford it at the rate this bird eats. It's a big bird compared to the little boreal chickadees and the black capped ones. lol

I just bought firewood for this winter, it went up another 12.5 percent a cord. Good lord.

  1. Bob [not Gary] -- I was offered a teaching contract in Alaska. I turned it down because in all the verbage about pay scales, insurance, holidays, plane tickets, moving expenses, there was a line that assured me "ten cords of firewood per winter for both my classroom and my home." [choke]

    I went through a 5 cord winter in Northern Idaho. I have no wish whatsoever to feel the bite of a 10 cord winter. That's why I live in Las Vegas.

    And those Maggies are eaters -- yes, indeed.
