What’s Up? – Cold Hands…Warm Heart
Cold Hands…Warm Heart
It has been a cold week for my area. For example, last Wednesday it was 23º F at the time we were waiting for the School bus! Daily, we have frost everywhere in the backyard.
It gets very breezy and you feel colder due to the wind chill factor. Most of my birds wait until the sun rises up over the tree line and they go looking for their meals.
I see the Carolina Chickadees are very busy going back and forth taking sunflower seeds to their nesting place…Perhaps stocking up for a harsh winter?
The Northern Mockingbird is back in service again, he chases everybody out from the feeders, to me it means one thing: The female must be incubating.
I also see my little “tenors” the Carolina Wrens, they move all over the deck area and inspect every niche or hole they can find. I guess, they are looking for insects or any other bugs.
Song Sparrows and House Finches also show up and eat but do not frolic for long.
And, of course, my Northern Cardinals, sometimes the entire clan is out to feed, they are very active and playful , they chase each other around snd flitter around the backyard. I enjoy moments like that very much. It gives me the impression that they are happy.
