Daily Pics #320.

Good morning everyone! I hope all my American readers had a good Thanksgiving yesterday. As I mentioned on our Canadian Thanksgiving last month, it’s nice to have a day set aside to be thankful, but really we should be thankful all the time. Even when things are not necessarily going the way we would like. Problems and difficulties come along, but there is still so much for which we can be thankful. Such as Muffin. Pets are great to have around and bring much joy into our lives. Muffin and I had a wonderful time this morning playing with her stuffed mouse. Then we chased each other around for a bit. She was really going wild this morning! And then there’s all my little outdoor friends, and some that are not so little. The female grosbeaks were back in the new feeder this morning feasting away for a little while. Until one of the rock doves came along and scared them away.

That dove couldn’t get the seeds but didn’t want anyone else to get them either. Kind of sounds like some people. But the rest of the birds get along quite nicely. Jasper was here this morning and he helped chase the rock doves away, the ones that were sitting in the tree. He did a good job and so I gave him some extra big peanuts this morning. He was very happy carrying them away to hide somewhere. The gray jays were here again this morning, that’s 2 days in a row now. I hope they keep coming. They are definitely one of my favorite birds. They are certainly not colorful like the blue jays, but they are an amazingly friendly bird. They don’t usually like coming into town much even though they do like people. And they always give a chirp of thanks after getting some food. I’ll show a couple pics of them tomorrow.

Today however, we have a couple pictures of a male downy woodpecker. This is our smallest woodpecker, and they are very small. Only about an inch longer than a chickadee. And the downy woodpeckers can also get quite friendly so it’s easy to get up close to them. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • Solar powered πŸ˜³πŸ™„ instead why the government is not letting to burn woods inside the house πŸ˜«πŸ˜• that’s a best way to stay warm isn’t it 😐

      • We can burn wood,πŸ™‚ but there is a lot of regulations involved so most people don’t want to.πŸ™„ I love wood heat,πŸ˜€πŸ”₯ better than any other way of providing heat. Some people are worried that we would lose our forests if we burned wood,😬 but we have so much forest and if it was properly reseeded there would always be lots of trees.😁😺🌲🌳🌲
