Plans to hatch Bobwhite Quail this spring. Lunch and some solar power talk in the cabin and a visit to the grow-room.

Another long video of the birds at the bird table for those of you who are interested in Birds. A special visitor that only shows up every 6 or 7 years, the Redpoll. The NB bird expert that is on CBC radio once a week, the Shift program I think, recently talked about them. I knew that I only have them at my feeders once every few years but I never knew why. He explained that they are native to the Boreal Forest just south of the Canadian Arctic and normally they would stay there in winter. There natural food is the cones on the White Birch and every six or seven years there aren't very many cones so they come south looking for food. They are almost tame because they aren't used to seeing humans and they love to go to bird feeders. Something else interesting that he said was that they dig themselves a snow cave at night to conserve body heat.

Spent a cold day out at the cabin putting up a new Ikea table that mounts on the wall and can be folded away to make more space. I also made a soup for lunch from the dehydrated garlic scapes, tomatoes and green celery soup that I grew last summer.

My brother made me a beautiful new bird table and the birds are starting to get used to it of course when I had the camera set-up it was just chickadees and as soon as I took it inside a large flock of doves arrived. One of my subscribers who also uses Bio Bricks for heat told me how he lights his fire with out kindling wood so of course I had to give it a try.
