Sun's OUT finally!
We had rain for nearly the entire month of December and it was so humid and yukky we had the ac on for 3 weeks! But then finally the SUN was able to persevere.
Then BLAST!!!! now its overnights in the upper teens and high of 40! Heats ON! So the sun came out..I joined my yard birds outside, these are my regular guests no surprises since the Rusty Blackbird I posted a few weeks back.
One of our lady darkeyed Junco's waiting her turn at the feeder!
Of course Northern cardinals are one of the most numerous birds in our yards is it not uncommon for 8-10 to be in one bush waiting...
Red bellied woodpeckers, whose bellies are not really red but reddish, are so cool they hang out on the tree trucks and are not too bothered by my presence in the yard..
There has been a brown tree creeper hanging out but I can never get him in the open to snap a shot of him I plan to keep trying...but I found this little puffed up white throated sparrow was not the least interested in hiding he was trying to warm up. Look at those beautiful little feathers..."o)
and the camellia bush got a chance to bloom before the tempts dropped to 24 and turned them brown...
In the front yard where the cedars grow my old buddy Milo the Mockingbird, (I have no way of knowing this IS him but it makes me happy to think it could be so it IS as far as Im concerned ;o) was soaking up the last rays of the warming sun before it dipped low....he is guarding HIS cedar tree and its full of berries I had hoped cedar wax wings may come but he won't share if they do drop by... he will chase the entire flock away! He wants all those berries for himself.
...and there goes Mr Solar on his way down tonight...
I didn't take any photos yet but I am rehabbing another bird. Once she is well I will.
I cleaned up and made some tiny changes to my blog page here...got rid of some stuff I was tired of seeing and may trim more..and did you know now you can do a Highlighted Post, I have one in my right column, and did you know now you can drag and drop your photos into blogger? Sure is easier..give it a try!
ONE of the 3 art canvases has arrived I really like it!! When the other 2 arrive I will share the "hanging" with y'all.
