Good morning everyone! Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers!! I hope you all have a great day with family and friends and don’t forget to be thankful for all the wonderful things we have in our countries, and in our lives. Plus there is all the beautiful memories we have and the new memories being made even now as you gather with your families. It is a chilly morning here today with a temperature of 3F (-16C), a few sparkles of frost twinkling on the branches of trees. I was hoping for more frost so I could get some nice pictures.
The sky is a most brilliant blue, making the whiteness of the moon really stand out beautifully. Lots of the small birds are around this morning, and the blue jays, but only a handful of evening grosbeaks showed up and they did not stay around very long. I think the rock doves scared them off again. Seems that there are some clouds moving in once more, blocking the sun now and then.
I haven’t seen Theodore around since the snow arrived, hopefully she is okay. Probably being fed by the neighbors across the street again, like last winter. That is a good thing really, keeps her on the other side of the street. It is dangerous crossing this street, especially when it is slippery. I went out yesterday afternoon to bring the feeders in and spend time with Chester. But all the birds were gone at 4:25. They head off to bed earlier every day now, so I have to watch more closely so I can be out there for a while with them before they leave for the night.
Hopefully I can go out and get some pictures of the birds today, I haven’t taken any new pictures for a while now. I heard a pine grosbeak whistling from a tree this morning but I haven’t seen it come to the feeder yet, although there have been some here the other day. For some reason they did not stay around though. I see the evening grosbeaks have come back and likely need some seeds now. Plus I need some coffee. Thank you all for stopping by today, have a wonderful day and God bless!
