Daily Pics #242.

Good morning on this very chilly, but sunny Saturday! Those poor hummingbirds. It must be getting cold for them these days and there is colder weather coming up. Guess I will have to take down my hummingbird feeder soon. I don’t leave it up too late as it encourages the hummingbirds to stay later than they normally would. That can make it hard for them migrating southward as there will soon not be many flowers left for them to get nourishment along the way. In places where there are more people and towns then it’s not so much of a problem as there is usually a good supply of flowers and people with hummingbird feeders to help them along their way. But up here that is not the case.

Speaking of cool, I was outside for a while this morning, coffee in insulated cup to keep it nice and warm, which would have worked okay except it has no lid, it broke the last time I used it. What are the chances of it landing upside down on a sharp rock and cracking the lid in about 550 different directions? So the coffee cooled off rather quickly. Anyway, I was out there for awhile watching Jasper and the chipmunks to see if anything fun would happen. I was not disappointed. There was one chipmunk in the box getting peanuts. Three others came up on the deck at the same time. Jasper came up the steps just then and came running nicely across the deck and spotted one of the chipmunks that had just come up. The chase was on! Except there were 3 chipmunks and every time Jasper came around a box or a flower pot there was a chipmunk going in a different direction. Poor Jasper. He just didn’t know what to do. He kept going back and forth, around in circles but the chipmunks were not giving up and leaving like they normally would.

Jasper.

Finally they all stopped behind something so Jasper couldn’t see them. Jasper also stopped and looked around around. The chipmunk in the box was gone, but a new one had taken his place. Jasper went inside the box, obviously not expecting a chipmunk to be inside too. Poor Jasper. The chipmunk jumped straight up and landed on Jasper which made Jasper panic and he ended up running around inside the box including right upside down! The chipmunk went out one door and Jasper went out the other door. Jasper then stopped, went back, peered inside the box, looked around outside the box, then went in grabbed a peanut and ran away. He was probably hoping that no one saw that.

Skamper.

The above featured image showing maple leaves have begun changing color. Then we have a pic of Jasper with a dirty face yesterday, he must have been digging. Then lastly we have a pic of Skamper on my knee with one large peanut in his cheek. He put another one in the other cheek, then one in his mouth and off he went. Have a wonderful Saturday everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Thanks Renee! Yes, Skamper is my oldest chipmunk now but all of them will sit on me and crawl all over me. Cool days are here now, but supposed to get 68 today, maybe. But this week we see temps going down to the 40s at night and low 60s during the day, next week cooler yet. Fall is here! Have a great day!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ΊπŸŒž

  2. The chipmunks are so cute. I especially like Jasper 😍

    I woke up to a cool breeze today which is a turn of events. For the past few weeks it’s been hot and now it’s starting to feel like autumn. I still can’t walk on my foot which is concerning since clinical starts next week 😐 I’ve also started getting Tim’s again because it’s close by. Can’t walk to MCDs these days ☹️

    • Yep, that cool air has descended on us for sure. The summer birds have gone, the year round birds are gathering at the feeders.
      Hope your foot gets better by then, otherwise that will be tough.πŸ˜• Oh my, giving in to Tim’s. Smart choice.πŸ˜‚
      Enjoy your weekend Hilary!

      • I send my husband out to get my steeped tea. I wouldn’t dare try leaving the house and risk another injury. I’ve already had a bunch of injuries this week tripping over Rebecca’s toys. πŸ™„ I much prefer MCDs but there’s no way I could walk there and the construction around MCDs is atrocious.

      • Good for you, that’s the way to do it! But you shouldn’t trip over toys, that could be dangerous.😬 Hope you are having a great day Hilary!😁😸🌞

      • I know I shouldn’t trip over toys and I wouldn’t have done it but I couldn’t help it! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ My foot really hurts today. It feels like there’s more internal nursing. Time for another painkiller.

    • Yep, that coffee lid, cracked in every direction. It’s amazing what I can do if I don’t try!πŸ™„ Well, Nina isn’t exactly a neighbor, about 2500 km away. But she provides me with pics of her cat, Mr. Cat,😸 so I can use him in my stories. Muffin needed someone to be with her in the stories so she wouldn’t have to be alone.😻😻 I hope. She really liked his picture so Mr. Cat was in! The cats have never really met however. Yes, Nina is a blogger too.πŸ˜€

      • Happy Onam Simon!πŸ˜€ We have big neighborhoods around here! Our nearest city is 2 hours away by car and that’s just outside of town.πŸ˜„ People go there just to have lunch.

  5. There are few gold leaves falling in my area and we are being bombarded with the dreaded pollen that happens this time of the year. Yuk! Our black car has a coating of yellow dust from one end to the other. And the hummingbirds have been frequenting our place lately! They’re fun to watch! πŸ‚ 🍁 πŸ˜Ίβ˜•οΈβ˜•οΈ

    • Our hummingbirds are starting to leave now, only 3 left, and maybe only 2, I didn’t see the male today. Yes, I really enjoy them, they will all be gone very soon.
