Good morning everyone and Happy Monday to you all as well! It is a fabulous, though cool, sunny morning here today. The birds are actually quite active this morning. Sir Charles was here for his breakfast when it was just getting some daylight out there, even the crows weren’t here yet. So I took some food out for him which he enjoyed without interruption from the crows trying to get on the feeder. A couple of the crows have gotten very brave and will go on the feeder with the gulls. That is something that Sir George and Sir Henry do not tolerate. Even Sir Charles is starting to chase them off. Jasper, the squirrel, was here quite early too and kind of chased the chipmunks a bit, but he doesn’t get too involved with that, he just wants the peanuts. Why waste time chasing chipmunks when food is available?
All 7 chipmunks were here again this morning and Coffee was first as usual. When he’s early then he can relax a bit and he chews open the peanuts to take the delicious peanut inside. By doing that he can take 3 peanuts, but when the other chipmunks start coming then he just grabs one and leaves fast! But, I haven’t seen Skamper, my most friendly chipmunk, since Friday, which is not good. However, with chipmunks that can happen sometimes because they need to make their homes a little larger to hold the bounty of food. Peanuts do take up a lot of space. Then they return again. But they are never gone longer than a few days, so we’ll soon see if Skamper returns or not. The new squirrel hasn’t been here since Saturday. I think Jasper likes that, he can relax more too. I was going to be early with my post this morning, but had some computer problems. I’m no good with computer problems. And I can’t do posts on my phone, just too small. Oh well. It’s a beautiful morning. And I didn’t even tell about all the activity this morning.
The featured image at the top is a fawn out for an early morning breakfast with it’s mother. He was standing next to a house in the picture, a very common sight in this town.
Then in the picture above is a family, or two, of geese going for a morning swim at the beach. Both deer and geese are a common sight in our town, but they are still a joy to see. I hope you all have a marvelous Monday and God bless!
