Our weather today has been very tempermental - we are expecting either wet snow or rain this evening and it is very windy. This afternoon our garden was full of seagulls. I put out peanuts for our 1 visiting blue jay but the squirrels gobbled them up before he returned :-(
I live in the same region as Deb above, and as I look outside it appears we have freezing rain..Poor gardens..!I love the look on the mocking bird's face in the second photograph, if birds could have an expression..he has one..LOL
Hi Deb,Sea Gulls, how lovely. They always seem so graceful to me. I am inland and only see the gulls when I travel. The squirrels seem to gobble up everything I put out too! I have been giving the Mocking Bird and the Jays raisins. The squirrels do not eat them!Sherry
Dear Shelia,Freezing rain?? It is so hard on everything and everyone!I know it can be very beautiful yet I have lost many trees and bushes to freezing rain. I have listened to branches cracking and powerlines snapping under the weight of freezing rain.I send blessings to you and Deb as nightfall desends. I got chilled just thinking about freezing rain...May you and your gardens be safe.Mocking Bird is so funny. A dependable bird that always cheers me up!He has personality! Sherry
Sherry,How do you get such wonderful photos? May I ask what camera you are using?It seems that everytime I look outside there is a mockingbird waiting to pose for me. Aren't they funny?
Hi Mary,I use a Nikon D50 camera. For Christmas my husband and I gave each other a telephoto lens, 200-500x and each month I have been investing in equipment. Currently I am working on learning the use of filters. The birds and I have a "relationship" and I hope that comes across!Some of the birds, like Mocking Birds, are very sociable. I think they are funny!Learning the camera and teaching it to see what I see has been an adventure! Thank you for your encouragement!Sherry
