Morning Coffee Time #51.

Good morning to everyone on this fine Saturday! Help yourself to some coffee and relax with us for a bit. Each day keeps getting nicer for us, this morning the temp was 0F (-18C), and according to the forecast it should make it to a high of 25F (-4C). Have to wait and see about that one, they were a bit off on their temperature forecast yesterday and it ended up being colder than they said, by a few degrees. The sun was shining yesterday, the forecast was good, so I decided to go for a walk. It was a nice walk for sure, but a bit colder than I was expecting. I’m certainly glad I dressed warmly anyway.

From my walk yesterday, yep, the river is still open even after all that bitter cold weather.

Once down at the river with the wind blowing right up the river, it was definitely a bit on the cool side. But I sat on the bench and enjoyed the view for awhile anyway. I will write more about the walk at a later time, there was some little changes from the last time I walked that path. The chickadees and redpolls are busy at the feeders this morning. The hairy and downy woodpeckers have been here, as have the blue jays. Still no sign of the evening grosbeaks though, guess they found another place to eat that they like better. Perhaps the shrike doesn’t come around to their new restaurant.

A little bay along the river is mostly frozen, but I wouldn’t walk on that ice!

Not many redpolls around though, only 8, and before there was over 30 of them. But they generally follow the grosbeaks around, makes it easier for them to get food since there is always bits and pieces of seeds left behind which they eat. They have a terrible time trying to open sunflower seeds themselves with those tiny beaks of theirs. It’s nice to see that the birds have legs and feet once again now that it’s milder. I wonder how Theodore did during that cold weather, the last time I saw him was in January. Hopefully he’s okay and comes back soon. Have a great day everyone and God bless!
