The redpolls can really make a splash on an overcast day. Just look at those little claws, grasping the lilac twigs. They do seem to like those uppermost perches!
The redpolls really enjoy deer feed on the platform feeder. Such pretty little birds. Such enthusiastic little birds! They flit in and out in waves, on the feeder, on the ground, into the trees, en masse.
Well, today has definitely been a day of the birds! From what I've been able to find, the "new" birds are dark eyed juncos. They would be returning from overwintering elsewhere. There were only a few yesterday, but today, there was tonnes! I now realize that we did see them last year. I had just … Continue reading Birds, Birds, Birds!
After our vehicle troubles yesterday, I'd intended to stay close to him today. I had to go to the post office before noon, and that was the only thing on my list that required driving. I ended up out three times today, first to pick up the mail, next to pick up prescriptions, and finally … Continue reading Snoozing
Well, I got a couple of things accomplished to move us forward today. This morning, I had a consultation with my lawyer about the Co-op situation. I've been consulting with a lawyer about their actions against me for some time, but I really thought that would be over with, now that we're no longer living … Continue reading A few more steps forward, and today’s critters
Critter pictures. Great for de-stressing. I didn't get any photos of deer today. In fact, the only time I saw them was when I scared them off, returning from one of my outings today. I just caught the sight of a flashing white tail, disappearing around the house. My husband sees them more, when the … Continue reading And now for something more pleasant
My husband called attention to a strange new bird in a spruce tree... Look closely... Can't see it? That's okay. She moved to a more visible spot. Yes, that's Butterscotch, up in the spruce tree. Quite settled in! Since this photo was taken, however, she has made like she wanted to get down, but seemed … Continue reading Strange New Bird
I hope you have been able to take time out this first Sunday of Lent for focus and reflection. With all the crud that accompanies a major move, I find it's always a good thing to pause and look at WHY certain choices were made. Unfortunately, in our case, the why of things is more … Continue reading Critter Pictures
Hungry Girl and Barbecue visited again this morning. I didn't even try and take photos with my phone. Instead, I just enjoyed watching them. After they left, the birds came back in full force, including a total of 5 blue jays! Usually, it's just two or three. There were also the massive numbers of redpolls … Continue reading Got a Camera
We are going to have to rethink how our living room is laid out again. A bit of adjusting to better suit my husband's needs, and a bit more shifting around. Our big picture window is currently blocked off completely, and I'd like to open it up again. Then promptly block it again. With a … Continue reading This Morning’s Critter Visitors
