That one day of sun raised my spirits by SO MUCH!
Today, we are back to the gray, and some rain is in the forecast for the rest of the week.
Yesterday, 52, today, 31.
We ran out to the country but did not stay long. The dogs barrelled out of the car and into the pasture.
And I went up on the porch to get the game camera that I had left out there yesterday.
This little guy got a good drink just before we got there.
As had a bluebird, and a blue jay.
Our neighbors, the Spehars, were working in the pasture. The two remaining steers are now
in their winter pasture, the Spehar's yard around their house, where they have a small shelter.
Yes, I caught some hawks on the way home... and you can see how very grey it was outside.
And I saw another on the way home...
And this guy was closer to home... but I could only stop for a second.
So gray... I hope we have some sun before Christmas!
The flicker that Lilly got yesterday...
was a yellow-shafted Northern flicker, there are yellow and red shafted.
I had never noticed a yellow shafted flicker at our house before... I had
only seen the red ones. I wish Lilly had not gotten this one, but I learned
that they do feed on the ground, looking for insects. I'm guessing she
snuck up on it.
I love Lilly... but you know I love birds, too!
