The Chinese New Year begins in China on January 28th, on the first New Moon of 2017. Here in the western hemisphere, we still have the 27th. China is celebrating the Year of the Rooster. There are twelve zodiacs. Each zodiac is for approximately one year. Therefore a zodiac repeats itself every twelve years. Next time we have a Rooster year will be in 2029.
Happy Chinese New Year!
Year of The Rooster … in this case: Hen
I had a lot of feathered friends visiting my yard at this morning. A house finch, a junco, a mockingbird, several house sparrows and white-winged doves came over for breakfast, today.
A Junco warms up in the morning Sun.

The House Sparrows ate as much as they could, …
… before they got pushed away by a White-winged Dove.
“There is plenty of food for everyone!!!”
“OMGosh! So thirsty!”
