Hello everyone and Happy Easter to all of you! For most of my readers the day is over or mostly so, but I do hope you had a very nice day. And for the rest I hope your day will be also very nice. It is still on the cool side here, our early morning temp was 12F (-11C) once again and it still has not warmed up very much. It was nice and sunny earlier, but the clouds have moved in again and are supposed to give us another 2 or 3 inches of snow overnight.
And more is in the forecast for Tuesday night or Wednesday. But warmer temps are on the horizon, it is just a little hard to see that horizon right now! There were so many birds here yesterday it was hard to believe. Today however, the numbers have gone down a great deal. I think there are more juncos today though, but there are much fewer evening grosbeaks and redpolls.
There are probably only about 50 or 60 redpolls here today, an amazing drop from yesterday. But I was certainly able to get many good pictures of redpolls and all the birds yesterday. I did not get any pictures of chickadees though, or the purple finches. There are 2 purple finches, both males and they are such a beautiful bright red which really shone brightly in that sunshine yesterday. In spring they are at their brightest for sure, such a beautiful bird.
Spring. Such a beautiful time of the year. Most people do not understand why I like summer so much, and that includes spring and fall, basically our snow free season. But winter is a hard time of year for me. I have serious health problems which make winter a hard season. That is why I like our snow free season best, it is much easier on my health, and I am able to get out more and enjoy the nature that surrounds us.
No, I am not able to move to a warmer climate, there really is none in this country anyway, and moving to other countries is out of the question. Just a quick mention of things since people have asked. I have thought of doing a health update post, maybe I will at some point if enough people would like to know.
Anyway, it is a beautiful day. The neighbors dog just chased the deer out of the yard. Maybe he will keep the bears away too. That would definitely be a benefit. Unfortunately he also chases my birds away. Every day he comes onto the deck, sometimes several times, barking and scaring the birds. Fortunately they come back once he leaves. Hmm, I think the birds need more food.🤔 And Muffin is looking for her lunch too.😺 Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy your day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.😊😻
