The first few raindrops hit our garden at 1024AM. Three hours late a true drizzle began. Since, rain intermittent. The wetter it got, the more the finches and junco ate…and ate. It’ll be a cold, wet night and that requires plenty of fuel to keep warm. No gas furnace in the local shrubs or trees for those who must sleep outdoors.
