Good morning everyone on this beautiful Thursday! Time to join Muffin and I for some coffee once again. Well, Muffin does not have coffee, but I do anyway. It was quite nice yesterday again, though not quite as warm as the day before. And a few more clouds in the afternoon. Well, it is hard not to feed the birds entirely, so when the chickadees and nuthatches show up I put a handful of sunflower seeds out for them.
Then the few grosbeaks and goldfinches come down as well and finish off the seeds quickly. So if the bear does show up he will not find much, if anything, to eat. Plus I put a few peanuts out at a time and they too will disappear quickly. Three chipmunks and two squirrels showed up yesterday. The only chipmunk that stayed around a lot was Choco.
Pocket and Skitter came a couple of times but that was it. Jasmine and Slim were here quite a bit and they had a couple of discussions, but nothing too serious. I planted my flowers yesterday, but they are not looking too perky. I did not buy as many this year and mostly stayed with geraniums. Oh, I saw that indigo bunting again yesterday morning, around 10:30, but I was unable to get any pics of it.
Mostly he likes to stay just on the other side of the fence unfortunately. But the fact he is staying around so late in the season tells me they must be nesting nearby this year. I sure hope they bring their young around once they can fly. I am really hoping to get a picture of the female at least, that would be so fantastic.
Fortunately that bear was not around yesterday, that made it more enjoyable sitting outside on the deck. My hummingbird feeder is still holding together and the hummingbirds have returned to it, though I had to put it in a different spot. I cannot see it from inside now in its new location, but at least the hummingbirds are enjoying it, that is the main thing. And I can enjoy them when I am on the deck.
I am showing some oddity, or as I like to say, some cute pics of the different critters around here today. I hope you will enjoy them too. Thank you so much for joining us here for coffee this morning. I do hope you all will have a beautiful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
