Really how are you all? Have you suffered with Covid 19? What about lingering effects of it if you have. I am curious if I had in fact had it back in January when I was so sick and if so is any of this new recognized health issues are connected or maybe it was from all the tick bites I had had the year before. It is true what they say, all we can be certain of is death and taxes.
Ok on a better note I am painting a lot but then again sitting too much as well but when I sit and paint the birds are on the other side of the glass and camera close by and boy do they love this place and the heated birdbath even though is is fairly beautiful near the seacoast of NH.
Today it will quickly warm into the 50’s so they say, right now at 8 am I have ice and snow on the ground with fog. The last few days we had had amazing sunrises which I am sure many of you also may have witnessed as well but today I saw none from my vantage point in the woods.
I have about 45 Juncos here daily I guess because they just visit me and are not living here with me like the Doves, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Titmice, Nuthatches, assorted woodpeckers and the now ever present Bluebirds I watch them more as they rummage for the seeds I toss for my ground feeding birds and furry creatures. I also had the new flock arrive Grosbeaks and they are gorgeous and never have been regulars here so maybe they were just passing through.
I do not want Bears or rats so I give them some when I notice them getting nothing for their efforts. I know they can forage and they do when we are away from the home for a long ride.
I also have birds of prey who know my address is a perfect place for them to dine on my feathered friends and yes though they must eat I would prefer they dine on mice lol lots and lots of field mice.
I hate seeing remains(feathers)on the ground. So many of you know I worked hard in the yard moving the food garden and planting many bushes, perennials and trees so when I scatter the food I do so is many areas they can make a run for it when these hawks come in hell bent on a kill.
I know it is nature and they are gorgeous as well but they don’t hang out with me for hours and hours helping to lower my blood pressure in this crazy time we are all a part of right now so if I can get them to shop at another address I am good with that.
Have a great day and let me know how you are and what kind of local birds you love to see.
