the design in his feathers remind me of Zentangle!
I heard that a woman walked up to the till with a bag of bird seed. She wanted to know how long it would take for them to sprout and what type of birds she would grow??!!We see lots of goldfinches but in their drab winter coat colour. I noticed one slightly more yellow yesterday. Guess another sign of spring
our guys like the black sunflower seeds best though they all go through the little bird seed quickly. Not sure how much is eaten and how much is spilled into the snow for the squirrels
it is interesting to read what a huge industry bird seed growing has become
That's interesting @Northwind - I've never heard of these geese
The geese and I have something in common. I like herring, too. Though I suspect they don't eat them smoked.
I buy Brunswick canned, smoked ones. They have Golden Smoked and Kippered. I think the seafood counters in our Chinese stores might have raw herrings and there are probably Asian ways of preparing them as well that you'd get on the shelves.I came across Brant Geese while at Parkville many years ago. I didn't get meaningful photos either.
Which brings me to my oft repeated whine - why can't I buy herrings at my local stores anymore? They disappeared about ten years ago - in frozen and kippered forms. I loathe vinegar so the pickled ones don't help!
Yeah, that's one of the things that will likely keep us close to major centres. Good Asian grocery stores get scarce outside cities because that's where most Asian immigrants land. Even London was kind of so-so on that front until about a decade ago when the current crop opened up.Canned isn't what I want (those foods of childhood call to me), I want REAL herrings that I debone and scale myself. I want real kippers, beautifully smoked. No access to Chinese ingredients here, though we do have a store selling food that our residents from the Philippines enjoy. They have some goat, some fish we couldn't identify and lots of cans, candies and packages.
