Winter is coming. It was bound to happen. We have had a good run of it. One of the nicest falls we have had for a long time. I didn't need the weather service to tell me a storm was coming the birds and chipmunks were a pretty good indicator.
The chipmunks really enjoy the squirrel feeder my parents gave me.
The cry of the cranes as they fly over.
The turkeys are frequent visitors. Would they be so bold if they knew Thanksgiving is around the corner?
The goldfinches, pine siskens, and white breasted nuthatches are sure thirsty.
If you are wondering why there are so many sunflower hulls in my bird bath the photo below will explain. He likes to picnic by the water.
This nuthatch has it all figured out. He grabs a seed from the feeder, crams it into the crack, and then pecks until he gets it open. It is a pretty slick deal. The pine sisken below is looking to see if the nuthatch is getting seeds from the crevasse. He seems confused.
I'm very pleased with the bird bath and feeder we made from the old cow drinking bowls. On one side the blue jay is getting a drink and on the other he gets his peanuts.
I guess I'm as ready for the snow as I will ever be. Hope my furred and feathered friends have filled their bellies.
