Most know I really enjoy the birds at my place but like so many places here in the US and abroad this heat is killing them.
We will receive our hottest weather today which will be over 100F and for New England, along the coast, that is far from the norm. Yes, heatwaves are normal but this long no and never with so little rain, wait this is not a weather report lol
It’s about my hot residents and doing what I can in my beautiful spot to help them make it through it along with us.
I keep the lawn areas high for them to sleep in the areas that turn to shade as the sun moves across the yard. I have so many plants and trees that provide them food and shelter along with a so-called river that is sketchy at best, with so many blooms happening making the waters in NH unsafe for even swimming or letting dogs go into never mind the wildlife that depend on it for their survival. They never test rivers for cyanobacteria which form blooms in polluted water, but they shut down known swimming areas when fecal numbers are too high then re-test a day or two later and let everyone back in.
The thing about fresh water is we all need it and these bodies of water feed our aquifers which fill our private wells scary stuff for sure so yes, the US doesn’t pave their streets in gold as once thought.
OK folks back to the show lol
Thanks for stopping by
