Rainy Day Bird Watching

25 Mar

With the cold rainy weather, there wasn’t much to do but watch birds out my window.

I think I need to wash the window.  Sadly, I really want to replace the window with a newer glass that doesn’t distort as badly.

I’m sharing with Bird d’Pot.  If you’re interested, there’s still time to join in Friday’s Hunt.

Enjoying Birds

19 Mar

I have to say, I’ve been enjoying the birds this weekend.

I’m going to have to keep the feeders filled up now that I don’t have yard goats!

We Got Snow!

13 Mar

Well, the snowstorm that is headed for the east coast passed through here.  Luckily, we did not get the huge amounts they are expecting elsewhere.

It was enough, however, to keep me busy preparing for it and making sure moms and kids were all in and had plenty to eat.

Minnie (and Cutie outside the barn)

Mary (I had to make another pen in the building for her and her triplets)

Our warm temperature for today was just at the freezing point, but it came overnight.  It’s cold and windy now.  That didn’t stop the goats from trying to go out to pasture.  I tell you, they didn’t last long.  Everyone is eating hay like they’ve never seen winter before.

The one that really surprised me was the pup.  Sky seems to be a snow baby!  If only he had a winter coat, he’d have been happy to stay out all day (instead of ten minutes).

The cats were not so happy.

Sky and Snickers

Bob can’t decide if he really wants to go out or not.

It did bring a lot of birds around.  The weather has been so nice that I haven’t had to feed them.  I did put out food, but it might take them a little time to find it.

I’m guessing we’ll still have snow by then.  It’s not supposed to warm up again until about Thursday.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.
