It's cold outside and there's not much of a water-view any more, but the Sunflower Seed Cafe is still popular here at the No-Lake.
A lively party of goldfinch filled every seat perch for a late weekday brunch.
While a murder of crows waited -- more patiently than usual -- for their turn.
The restaurant next door was popular as well. It's closer to the neighborhood housing development.
A few red-winged blackbirds dropped by later for an afternoon snack.
The Scrub Jay serves as self-appointed bouncer. When he decides a party of smaller birds has been there long enough, he swoops in and clears out the place. (He doesn't really like the food, even though it's free. He just likes to show who's boss.)
