I have just read a piece of trivia which stated that "a raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will bounce up and down continuously from the bottom of the glass to the top," however, my cynical champage-filled-flute figurine (featured in the image atop this entry), says that is probably fake news.
She claims that depending on how much champagne one has had, it may LOOK like a raisin is bouncing up and down continuously, however,...
Whether a raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will bounce up and down continuously from the bottom of the glass to the top, is of little concern to a feisty Northern mockingbird, who visits my urban garden, all he/she cares about is that I provide raisins for him/her to eat; as evidenced in the photograph below.
We will be having snow storm in NYC today that'd being called a “bomb cyclone." Therefore the only food I will be able to offer my visiting birds are suet cakes, peanuts in their shells and black-oil sunflower seeds which can go into my hanging bird feeders.
The media always warns folks to have "milk and bread" on hand during storms like the one which is predicted, but I also make sure that my bird feeders have been filled.
I'll report on how my avian visitors fare in the “bomb cyclone" in tomorrow's blog entry. I'm sure that I will be very preoccupied tending to their needs as well as taking pictures of them.
