Good morning everyone on this beautiful sunny Sunday! I hope you are all well and already enjoying your day! Muffin and I were up bright and early, well, I guess it wasn’t really too bright, but it was starting anyway. Muffin was anxious for breakfast as usual, even though she ate at 2am already. And now of course she is playing wildly with her mouse and running around through the house. Well, apartment that is, but that doesn’t rhyme with mouse, so I had to use house. Ricky is still here and always looking for his breakfast too, though he doesn’t show up every morning which is kind of odd. The crows were also here, with a couple more friends as well. The extra two are probably the ones that stay here all winter.
My summer crows are usually smarter, they head south for the winter. I have noticed that there are more ravens in town already. They don’t normally come into town in any real numbers until most of the crows have gone. Those two birds don’t get along very well. Grover’s friends have gone now, which is nice. The other birds just couldn’t get any food with them around. Grover is still here though and I don’t mind that. A white-crowned sparrow has arrived too, joining the white-throated sparrows. That’s actually a bit early for them to start showing up, but it’s just one so far.
I actually saw a butterfly around my bedroom window yesterday afternoon, so I grabbed my camera and, I couldn’t find it anywhere. Back inside and look at my bedroom window and there’s that butterfly again. Run outside with camera and, I couldn’t find it anywhere. It stayed away this time. Would have been nice to get a picture of a late butterfly, whatever kind it was. Oh well. It’s supposed to be hot today so perhaps that butterfly will be back. Also supposed to be thunderstorms later today. Poor Muffin. She will not be happy, not at all. Anyone for more coffee while I’m up? Thanks for dropping by this morning, have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
