Rainy Day Bird

During the downpour today I was surprised to look out and see a bird, I think a finch, eagerly feeding at the feeder hanging on our crab apple tree. The bird clung to the feeder in the wind, looking around as it nibbled, but rarely looking toward our window.

I was only about 6 feet away and tried not to move.

The bird left and came back for more, then left.

Sometime later a squirrel, the first I've seen near the feeder, ran up the tree and started toward the feeder. Maybe he spied me, or felt the slender branch that the feeder is on wasn't up to his weight, but he backed down, and scampered off.
