Day 76- Underbrush- Haibun Journey View From My Window

Today is another cold grey day but there is lots of activity outside my window. Cardinals are feasting at the feeders. Black capped chickadees are sitting in the sugar maple. A flock of sparrows are flitting about in the underbrush. A white breasted nuthatch and a downy woodpecker are taking turns at the suet feeder. In the background I can hear the resounding call of the red-bellied woodpecker.
