Morning Coffee At Steve’s Country #15.

Good morning to all of you on this chilly and snowy morning! The coffee is ready, nice and hot! The beautiful aroma fills my apartment which automatically gives us a wonderful, cozy feel. It isn’t quite so cold this morning, the temperature being 0F (-18C), though for some reason it still feels as cold as yesterday. I was out early, it was just getting daylight, to put seeds and peanuts out for the birds, and there was the first chickadee to greet me. Amazing that he could see to fly around, they are not exactly a night bird. But he was able to get some food before anymore chickadees showed up. I had to sweep away some freshly fallen snow, not much, just about half and inch (1cm).

Yesterday I bought the chickadees a new feeder, well, other birds can use it too however it’s meant for smaller birds like chickadees and nuthatches. I will put it up today. I would have done it yesterday but I have to do this with bare hands and it was just a little too cold yesterday to work outside with bare hands. Today should be okay, though I notice the wind is getting stronger out there, that can make things uncomfortably colder too. Oh well. Muffin and I were watching out the window together as the number of birds continually increased this morning. Still not many birds, so I guess that’s the way it will be for now. Soon the natural food supply will become less as winter continues and then birds will make their way to feeders. I see the hairy and downy woodpeckers are here now and of course, my 4 blue jays. That one is still a real puzzle. What happened to my blue jays? There was 14, the most I have ever had here, and now there is just 4. I won’t ever know for sure, just ideas floating around, but it is a puzzle.

Another Bohemian waxwing.

Jasper and Jenny haven’t been around yet, but I’m sure they will be here later this morning. Hmm, looks like the blue jays need some more peanuts, better toss some more out to them. Good timing, Jasper just showed up too, so more peanuts were definitely needed out there. I didn’t see Jenny anywhere, but maybe Jasper will take a peanut home to her, breakfast in bed on a cold winter morning. Well, it could happen. Today’s pics are a couple different Bohemian waxwings, there are a lot of them around this winter, even more than last winter. And I thought there was a lot then. The white streaks in the pics are snowflakes. Thanks for coming, have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
