Wednesday’s Wanderings #23.

Good morning to each and every one of you! I hope you are all feeling well today. It’s another beautiful autumn morning. The sky is blue, the sun is shining, but there is a rather strong wind this morning which is likely going to cause a lot of leaves to fall off the trees. I’m glad that I was able to get out yesterday with a friend of mine to get some fall pictures. We managed to get some nice ones too which I will be showing for a while, along with other pics too. It was a beautiful day yesterday, sunny, not much wind and a temp of 75F (24C). Fantastic weather for early October.

Black-capped chickadee.

The birds are busy again this morning. The chickadees and nuthatches arrived early and are still after the seeds. They basically stay around most of the day now. There are juncos and white-throated sparrows out there too, but they will soon be leaving. We didn’t see many of the little birds while we were out yesterday. I was expecting to see a lot of flocks around the different places we stopped. There are evening grosbeaks and pine siskins here each day now too, but they don’t come around too early in the day. It’s usually mid morning or later before they arrive.

But I’m glad they are here and hopefully they will stay around this winter. Oddly there are no red-breasted nuthatches around yet, they usually start coming in September. Perhaps their numbers are low this year. Hmm, the evening grosbeaks just arrived. They’re early today, that’s nice, I sure don’t mind. One chipmunk was here this morning, but only came once. There was 4 here yesterday afternoon, but only for a short time. Once the temps drop on the weekend I’m sure they will stop altogether. I will have to see if I can get some more chipmunk pictures today. Plus I would like to get more pics of the white-breasted nuthatches, I don’t have many pics of those birds.

I need to get some things done outside while the weather is still nice, like washing my windows. Such a fun activity, but it needs to be done. Muffin is in a real active type mood this morning. She is really flying around the apartment, jumping, climbing, tossing her toys around. Then she stops to watch the birds for a minute or two, then back to running again. I need some of that energy today. She just ran right across me while I was typing. Wow, is she going! I think she might have stopped this time. Well, she got her exercise, now it’s my turn. I’ll go out and take some pictures. And have another cup of coffee. Would anyone like to join me? Have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    I remember this scene

    My cat once enjoyed watching I asked what he is doing, he simply said he loves watching birds.

    a few minutes later…

    there was a bird screaming… I saw him fighting with the bird, I rescued. I looked at him?

    He simply said “What? I’m trying for a friendly Hug!”

    You should not hug with your mouth next time. ๐Ÿ˜…

    Have a lovely day Uncle Steve ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚
