Good morning everyone! It is time for some coffee and a relaxing chat sitting out on the deck again this morning. It is a bit on the cool side so you might want to wear a light jacket. Birds are singing, well, mostly that little house wren, but there is a robin a little further away and the blue jays are busy with their calls as well. And there is a chickadee in the birch tree singing his name loud and clear.
Hmm, looks like we need some more peanuts out here too. So far I have not seen any chipmunks this morning, but I am sure they will be coming to visit soon. I am actually surprised they have not shown up yet, they were here earlier than this yesterday. Perhaps they are getting ready for their big day tomorrow. Don’t forget, tomorrow is International Chipmunk Appreciation Day!
Join in the fun by feeding a chipmunk or wearing something brown tomorrow! I will be showing some pics of chipmunks tomorrow as well. Hey, there is one now, looks like Crunchy and here he is after the peanuts. And now Baxter and Betty are here too picking up some peanuts. And here comes Jasmine as well. They all must have heard me put out that last cup of peanuts. Now Choco has arrived too. Those peanuts will not last long.
It is nice to still get a few visitors. Not feeding birds like before certainly has made a difference out here, the birds leave very quickly when the food supply is gone. That makes it more quiet out here too, with less birds singing in the trees. I wonder what has happened to Theodore the wild turkey that always came to visit? Of course she did get chased a couple of times by the neighbors big dog. That probably made her decide to stay away from the area.
That sky is such a rich blue again today and looking at it with the tree tops against that blue, that is a true country pleasure. And even a city pleasure, if that is where you live. It is a beautiful morning. I have been getting some nice insect pics this week, though trying to identify them is not so easy. I am sure that some will likely remain a mystery. I will begin showing some more insect pics very soon. Thank you for joining us for coffee this morning! Have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
