A Balmy Breeze

We had a couple of days that mornings started cold and rapidly turned to full sunshine and temperature rose to 57ºF. It felt like summer!

What a difference it makes to have a bright day and warmer temperatures with a balmy breeze!

I haven’t been home much lately,  because I’ve been shopping and doing some errants since it has been nice outdoors. I’ve noticed that birds are eating more now, as soon as I fill the feeders they fight to get to be first, two hours later, all the food is gone!

Again I’ve seen a lot of Mourning Doves just sitting next to the clay saucers and eat like no day tomorrow! They take possession of the feeders…that is until a Northern Mockingbird shows up and the banquet ends! (He kicks all the doves out!)  Yeah! That’s my boy! 🙂

    • While I write this reply it’s raining, also rained all night. It’s miserable for the birds, the rains washes away all seeds. Thanks Jet! 🙂

  1. Happy you’ve had balmy temps lately! Mockingbirds are something else, one recently imitated mama osprey’s call for fish. That sounded quite funny 🙂

    • They are able to imitate voices of their choice. I suspect that they pass the word when there’s a predator nearby. I like them around! I think that they protect other birds in their designated territory. Thanks Tiny! 🙂

  2. Delightful pictures! Thanks for sharing these lovely pics. We had heat wave conditions here and then 100mm of rain yesterday. The birds looked a little bedraggled!

    • The rain stopped early this morning and the sun is starting to shine again, is still cool and humid. Bird are hungry! Thanks Jane for sharing! 🙂
