Morning Coffee At Steve’s Country #21.

Good morning everyone on this the shortest day of the year! There’s a nice fresh pot of coffee ready, so please help yourself to a cup and sit back to relax for a few minutes with us. Muffin is bouncing around waiting for your arrival this morning. The shortest day of the year, after this the days begin to get longer once more. Not that it’s very noticeable for awhile yet, but it’s the thought that counts. It feels good just knowing that the days are getting longer. Of course it also means the days will be getting colder. That part doesn’t feel quite so good. But soon the days…um, well, not long from now the…um, well, eventually the days will be getting warmer. It might take awhile, but it will happen, hopefully. Seems like a long ways off though. Four months or so. Anyway, let’s forget about that part for now.

A little pine siskin in the apple tree back in May.

I wonder what happened to Theodore again? He came back that one day and he’s gone again. Very strange turkey that one. Maybe he doesn’t like the brand of sunflower seeds I use? Of course, my bird feeder is a bit small for such a large bird. He must be eating somewhere though, he certainly looked well fed. Oh well, it would take a lot of seeds to feed that turkey anyway, so maybe it’s best he only shows up once in awhile. I think more people are feeding birds this winter. That would explain the erratic behavior of the birds, why they are here one day and not the next. Oh well, we got a little snow overnight and we are supposed to get more tomorrow and Wednesday. That will really make things look more wintry for Christmas.

A female hairy woodpecker picking up some sunflower seeds for her babies back in the nest. From May.

Both the hairy and downy woodpeckers were here a lot yesterday and they are all getting more brave all the time, so hopefully I can get more pics of them soon. The redpolls are also getting braver which is nice, I would like to get some close up pics of those little birds. There was even a hoary redpoll in with the common redpolls too. I am still trying to get a good pic of one so hopefully she will stick around. It was dark when I put the feeder out this morning and those ducks were flying down to the river already. Everyone trying to get the best fishing spots I guess. Time to get ready to go shopping, I hope you all have a very nice Monday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. To tell you the truth that I give most of what I find as meat in my dish to the cats that we have and the dog of our neighbors .
    I prefer going mostly vegan because there are more than enough fruits and vegetables to nourish our bodies …
