Good morning everyone on this mild, foggy morning! Please help yourself to some coffee, sit back and relax with us for a few minutes. Muffin is waiting to greet everyone that stops by today! As I mentioned, it’s mild again this morning, 16F (-9C), and foggy. The fog is a bit odd for this time of year, the heavy clouds are normal, making it quite dark inside so my lights are still on. The birds are slow waking up this morning it seems, so far I have only seen 1 chickadee and 2 blue jays. That is also odd. Just a few houses in both directions from me there are people feeding birds this year, plus another person on the next street I have been told. That could have a lot to do with the lack of birds this winter.
Theodore was back again yesterday, I hope he will be back again today as well. There is a snowstorm coming our way, should be here this afternoon and continue all night and into tomorrow. It will make things look very nice for Christmas. Personally I think a green Christmas would be nice. Just for a change. I doubt it will ever happen though. But we did come close one year. After that it started getting colder again each winter. Oh well, this is the north, we kind of expect cold and snow around here. I see all 5 blue jays are here now and several chickadees, the 2 nuthatches, still haven’t seen the woodpeckers though. I also haven’t seen Jasper this morning. I’m sure he will be here soon looking for his breakfast.
This snow that is coming might make it hard to walk down to the river, unless some other people use the path too. Not a bird in sight right now, everything is so very quiet. This is also very odd. Birds usually are very busy at feeders prior to a snowstorm, eating as much as possible. I will need to be out early tomorrow morning before it gets light making sure the feeders are clear of snow and well stocked for the birds. All part of feeding the birds in winter. A chickadee has returned I see, oh, and a few more have come with it. That’s what I like to see. And today, some warmer looking bird pics from early summer, still going through a few of my favorites from this year and we will continue with favorites until the end of the year. But favorite flower pics I will keep until January. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
