Daily Pics #304.

Good morning to everyone! It’s a cool morning once more with a temp of 18F (-8C), but the sky is a beautiful blue and the sun is now shining on the tops of the trees. The blue jays are here arguing over their peanuts. The evening grosbeaks are sitting casually on the feeder feasting away on sunflower seeds, oddly no arguing among them this morning. They often do a lot of arguing for some reason. Pine grosbeaks are more calm and get along much better. The chickadees were the first birds here this morning, usually redpolls are first but I didn’t see or hear any redpolls this morning. That’s not good. I was hoping to have lots of them this winter.

They are a brave little bird and they don’t mind coming up close to me. That gives confidence to the larger birds so that they too will come close. That helps for getting better pics of the birds. And it also helps so I don’t have to stand out there in the cold for too long a time in order to get those pics. That’s a big plus. I would really enjoy having the redpolls and pine grosbeaks back this winter. They were not here last year, but there was a lot of them the winter before. Having the evening grosbeaks here is also a treat, their yellow color really brightens the winter landscape. I have put out some suet now to hopefully start attracting some woodpeckers and also to give some quick energy food for the chickadees and nuthatches during the colder weather of winter. It’s a quiet morning here, even the birds are gone now except a few chickadees. This winter has been off to a rather odd start. Guess I will keep this short today.

Forget-me-not

For our featured image at the top we have a nice red poppy in honor of Remembrance Day here in Canada. Remembering those who gave their lives so that we might enjoy the freedoms we have. Then we have the little blue “forget-me-not” flowers, a nice cheery addition for any garden. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
