Gary and I moved into the big city (downtown Victoria) just a month ago and now live in a fourth-floor suite. One of my favorite things is the tree outside our windows. With my knee not fully functional, I’ve been spending a lot of days at home getting to know the view. When we first arrived, it seemed that crows and seagulls would be the main resident birds, but I’m happy to say that we are still getting a lot of the same visitors we had when we lived outside of town. Juncos, chickadees, flickers, robins (of course), and even a pair of woodpeckers have stopped by our tree. I’ve been watching as the leaves drift to the ground and the remaining ones become more and more brilliant in contrast with the darkening, greying November surroundings.
