Daily Pics #317.

Good morning everyone! It’s cloudy here again this morning with some light snow, snow pellets and freezing rain, all mixed together. A nice mixed up bunch of weather to begin the day. At least it wasn’t slippery, guess there is enough snow mixed in to keep it from being too slippery. Driving around might be a bit different though, but it can’t be too bad, the street is as busy as usual. Speaking of streets, I caught Jasper running across the street yesterday. So when I was outside working on the new bird feeder Jasper came along and I said to him that we needed to have a talk. He just looked at me. Have a peanut and sit for a bit, which he did. It’s dangerous crossing that street, I told him, those cars and trucks are big. Chip. Yes, I know you’re fast, so are the cars. Louder chip. I know, there are no squirrels on this side of the street. Have you checked down the hill? He just looked at me. Yes, I know you live over that way, but maybe if you went further down the hill. Chip. Oh, you’ve done that already.

Still, the squirrel that lived here before you got run over by a car crossing the street. Chip. Oh, he was your cousin? Sorry to hear that. And there was another squirrel…Louder chip. Oh, she was your mother. Very sorry to hear that. But that’s why I don’t want you to go across the street. He looks at me. Sigh. Just be extra careful, look both ways before crossing the street, and don’t try to outrun a car. Chip. You’re welcome, I want you to stay around for a long time. Oh, ready for another peanut? Here you go. He takes it and off he runs back home. Now if I could just convince Jenny to come and live over on this side of the street. She and Jasper would make a good pair. It’s dark this morning. I’m not sure if that’s a light snow falling or a light rain right now. There was a chickadee out here this morning very early, just beginning to get light, perhaps he didn’t get enough food yesterday so he had to get up early. So I rushed out there with the feeders.

This is Major, a white-tailed deer.

That big buck finally showed up a couple days ago, during the day that is, so I got some pics of him so today I will share a couple of them with you. He’s getting a bit more friendly now. I hope you have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Yep, the does and little ones still come around too, more often than the bucks. At least they come more often during the day anyway.
