Observations on a Cloudy Day
When the day is as cloudy as today has been, it is difficult to differentiate between night and day. I have seen nights with a full moon that were almost as bright as this afternoon has been. That said, I will gladly take warm and dreary over clear, cold and windy (that is forecast for us).
There was little time for photography today. I did watch birds briefly and made a couple of observations. When birds take flight and a person is able to record the motion of their wings, the process is almost artistic.
This was a black-capped chickadee flying off the perch:
I recorded some images of our white-breasted nuthatch I thought was afflicted with conjunctivitis. After closer review, I think I may be seeing the eye behind/below the mattered feathers. I wonder if maybe the bird wasn’t exposed to something sticky and can actually see out of the eye.

This male house finch was nothing special. It was just at the feeder:
