Because I am the biggest hippie nerd ever, I have started buying my milk from Morning Fresh Dairy just a few hours north in Colorado. The local Whole Foods sells it. The Dairy grows their own food for the cows to ensure they are not given any hormones. They also bottle their milk in nifty glass bottles for freshness. The glass bottles can be returned to Whole Foods to get the deposit back and so they can be sanitized and reused. See my two bottles...

Is it pathetic that I'm so thrilled about milk in actual glass bottles?

I think I have identified almost all the birds hanging out at my feeder. My favorites are the Scaled Quail that enjoy eating the food that has dropped on the ground. They don't normally fly, but they do run away quite quickly if they see Ferguson come 'round the corner. The House Finches are the ones that monopolize the feeder most of the time. However, a Mourning Dove or two tries to squeeze in every now and then. Mostly, they just hang out on the ground with the Quail. The tiny Song Sparrows are another favorite of mine. They seem to enjoy rummaging through my bushes and finding all the dropped food. They'll also fight the House Finches for feeder space. There is one odd bird that I can't seem to identify yet. It's gray-ish in color with a bill length as long or longer than its head. It just looks so unusual to my untrained eye, though I'm sure it is somewhat common in these parts. I only see one of them, though. I get the feeling it is the same bird visiting my feeder, but I can't prove that. (Huge thank you to [ profile] shehops for mentioning the bird identification website I used.)
