Good morning to all of you on this fine Thursday morning! Well, so far it’s staying mild just like they said it would, quite amazing, but very nice. It does cool off at night, down to 0C (32F), but yesterday it was 57F (14C), which for us in November is fantastic! At this rate all of our snow should be gone by the weekend, but then we might get some more next week, but that’s okay, it is winter after all. Well, I have been working on changing my bird feeder setup this week, the weather is perfect for it, but due to “technical difficulties” it’s going rather slow. Good thing I came up with some shortcuts or I wouldn’t get this done by the weekend. I started Tuesday, but didn’t get too far. Yesterday I finished off Tuesday’s part and did Wednesday’s part. In other words, I overdid it, but I got it done except for cleaning up, but I’ll do that at the end instead of daily. Today comes part 3 which will be much easier than yesterday. Well, it’s supposed to be anyway, but with me you never know.
I’m rather stiff and sore after yesterday, so I might be slow moving today. While taking down the old feeder yesterday the plastic box I was standing on decided it was tired of holding me up. So it gave way. And I nearly went over the edge. But we won’t talk about that one. It was rather close though, but no serious problems resulted. I’m going to have a lot of garbage to get rid of after this. But today’s part is relatively simple and part 4 tomorrow is, well, it’s under consideration at this time. I’m still not quite sure about part 4. Can it be done? Do I need it? We’ll see after I finish part 3. Because of an extra addition to part 2 and 3, then part 4 may not be necessary at all. I’m hoping anyway. The blue jays are very busy this morning, all 14 of them. So are the chickadees. There is only a few juncos left, I’m surprised they haven’t all gone by now. Theodore had missed the last couple days, but he was here for breakfast checking out the new ‘restaurant’ renovations. He was quite satisfied, the feeder is more solid now, and the food was just as good.
And continuing with some of my favorite summer pics, today we have some insects, so if you don’t like insects maybe you won’t want to look. The featured image is a white admiral butterfly. It doesn’t look white? You’re right, but it does have a white stripe on each wing, otherwise on top it’s mainly black. Then in the pic above we have an unidentified dragonfly sitting on a twig just above my head. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
