You know me if the sun's shining and the weather's nice, I'm going to be out there with my camera.
The birds were in the feeders and pretty hungry today. I have to wonder whether that's a sign of the weather to come. Many of them are pretty skidish of me with the camera and wouldn't even go to the feeder with me on the steps or deck, but I did get a few shots.
So like every other person in our area, Bill went out to the grocery store today and picked up a few things in case the weather turns. They're saying 2-4 inches for our area, I'm ready, there will be soup ( comfort food is a must ) tomorrow whether the rain stays rain or turns into snow. Frankly sixty degree weather is wacky so I guess snow would actually be normal!
Talk about the luck of the Irish! This gorgeous little woodpecker decided to raid our feeder as I was out with my camera today. Isn't he/she just wonderful? Nor very large as woodpeckers go but bursting with character and color and pattern. I gather he decided to fill his belly before the impending storm as well.
He's really to big for the feeder however so he hangs on and picks the feed out with his long beak. We must have a nest in one of our large trees because this one is a daily visitor. We have bigger ones too I can here them tap- tap- tapping on the trees during the day when the windows are open.
I guess we should be happy for the weather coming to our town soon, we can probably use the precipitation. Bill just came in and said the next door neighbor just set a grass fire, by accident. Not good! Thank goodness they were able to put it out without anyone being hurt or any property damage. Bill had the phone in his hand and was about to call 911 but thank the Lord it wasn't necessary.
That's all for now folks.
Enjoy the photo's!
