Morning Coffee Time #54.

Good morning everyone! Coffee is ready, grab a cup, sit back and relax for a few minutes. It’s another beautiful morning, though cloudy, with a temp of 28F (-2C), nice enough to be outside with a cup of coffee this morning. However, I didn’t, the coffee would likely have cooled off a bit too fast. But I did stand out there for awhile listening to the morning wake up. I think the morning was sleeping late today, rather quiet out there except for a raven “gronking” on a hydro pole over on the next street. Finally a chickadee showed up.

Then I heard a strange noise down the street. That’s Theodore! Sure enough, after a few minutes he finally showed up. It was nice to see that he survived that terrible cold, I was beginning to wonder if he did since I hadn’t seen him since that cold hit us. For my newer readers, Theodore is a wild turkey that I first saw on my path to the river last summer and then in the fall he started coming to my bird feeder. He didn’t actually come onto the feeder this morning though. Due to the melting the last couple of days a lot of seeds are showing up on the snow under the feeder, so he was happily down there cleaning up all those sunflower seeds. That’s fine with me, nothing wasted that way.

Baxter and Betty, Bert and Bridget, the 4 blue jays, are here this morning too. And Harriet, the female hairy woodpecker, was the last to show up. I don’t generally name the chickadees and nuthatches since it is a challenge to tell them apart. I haven’t seen my deer lately either, but Rusty the red fox comes around most nights. I get to see him sometimes, but he doesn’t have a regular schedule so I only know he’s been here by his tracks. I keep hoping to get a chance for a picture, but it’s hard when he only comes around at night. Oh well. Have a wonderful day everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • No spring birds showing up yet, these are all our year round birds, but the first of the spring birds could be here in 3 or 4 weeks. That’s when the gulls usually show up, depending on the weather. Right now we are being teased a bit with some spring like weather, happens every year, but it could still be 2 months before spring arrives. The last 2 years it was the end of April. But…it has come early, by mid March, so that’s what I’m hoping for this year!🌞πŸ₯³πŸ€Έβ€β™‚️
      Yep, you wanted challengers and they are giving you a challenge alright! But third isn’t bad.πŸ€”πŸ˜›πŸ₯‰

      • It’s done, and I do have painkillers if I need them, and I do need them, at least tonight anyway.πŸ™„ I’m tired so I should sleep good.😴 Now I have to follow all these directions for the next few days so it doesn’t get infected.😬 There’s a big hole to heal!😳😬


      • Oops, that’s a big hold it seems. Do take care of it, follow all steps and let it heal. Take good rest, don’t roam around and jump around. Also take care of Muffin…πŸ€—

    • It won’t be easy getting the fox, if I go out he runs away. Yep, nice to see Theodore again. Finally no ice on my deck now! I didn’t go anywhere else today. Have a nice evening!πŸ˜€πŸ˜Ίβ˜•β˜•πŸŒ™


  3. Steve, life is definitely staying busy around your place. It’s good to see your weather warming up. I am headed out early tomorrow for my first morning walk in quite some time.

    • Good for you, always feels good to get out for those walks. I don’t think I will be out again for awhile, it melted some and now has frozen making that snow slick as ice. I can’t imagine walking on those hills to the river now. Enjoy your walks!


  4. So glad Theodore is okay. They keep coming back because your warmth. They know they are loved. Such a blessing. 😁🌞
