Coffee And Chatting. #8

Good morning everyone! Muffin and I are so happy to see you again today. Time for some coffee and a bit of chatting for our Tuesday. I finally had to do something to stop the crows from taking so many of the peanuts. So it is back to using one of the plastic milk crates. It is placed upside down over the peanuts and the chipmunks and squirrels go in and out through the handle openings.

It is like using a door and it works very well too. The crows are complaining but they were taking too many of those peanuts. Plus one of them had started going on the roof and pounding the peanut to open it. Well, that can harm the shingles, which is not a good thing. I might have to use 2 or 3 of these milk crates to do things right however. Especially when several chipmunks show up at one time, or a squirrel comes and decides to stay inside eating peanuts instead of running off somewhere with them.

But the idea does work good. It was such a nice sunny morning I was planning on another walk to the river today. But our sunshine has given way to clouds once again. And more rain is coming. We had quite a bit of rain last evening with thunderstorms that moved through the area. That makes 3 days now. Now, on one hand we do not want more rain because people would like our lake and river to fall down to normal levels again.

But, the land is dry, very dry, so for that we need rain or we could start getting forest fires. Also, rain is needed for the wild berry crop so the bears get enough food and stay out in the forest where they should be. Speaking of bears, I had one on my deck again the other night. It was about 11pm (23:00) when it showed up. But at least it was fairly quiet and left quickly since there was no food around. There was actually quite a few birds singing this morning which was nice to hear.

Even the loons were busy calling. Still, it was not like when I walked to the river on Friday. On that walk birds were singing everywhere and it sounded so beautiful. However, I enjoyed the chorus this morning. Right now it is very quite outside except for a crow cawing in the distance. Looks like it will be a good day to stay inside and catch up on some smaller projects. Thank you for stopping by, have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  3. Cool pics, but the first and third birds in the first photo are STILL looking down their noses at me! I suspect the first one is the one you showed before, and now he’s spreading his arrogance! ๐Ÿ˜
