What’s Up? – Heat and More Heat

Heat and More Heat


I don’t know about the weather where you live, but our weather was hot over 90ºF everyday, for the past week, and one single day we had heavy rain for a few hours when ended and the heat was up again and charged with humidity, making it very uncomfortable.

Last week I said I was going to trim some trees, I had not one opportunity because of the weather temperature.

Many of my birds are still molting and others are done with it. I’ve seen a Cooper’s Hawk chasing birds a bit too often for my taste. He always comes and tries catching birds, not very successfully I would say. Birds are very smart and fast and not so easy to catch. Hawks are better hunters of voles, snakes, or nestlings. Little birds spot the hawk and immediately fly to thickets and hope that the hawk will break his wing there. Of course, the hawk knows that strategy and simply ends the chase and go after something else.

  1. You have my sympathy, regarding the heat. We’ve had the same, although after a week or so of temperatures well above a hundred, ninety seems pretty good. You’re right about the humidity, though. Even the mid-80s can be miserable when the humidity’s up. September’s coming!

  2. The temps are going up later in the week, but it is the coolest summer we have ever had, and the majority of people are pouting. 53 farenheit today, with almost daily rains and my roof is leaking. Blah! I am happy we haven’t had to experience temperatures in the 100’s, even the 90’s would be torture.On a happier note, I enjoyed the birds today, most of ours are hiding while they go through molt.

    • The weather patterns of the world have moved and the result is affecting everybody. Places used to be extra hot for centuries are cold and vice-versa!
      Can’t make anybody happy, we just have to adapt to the new changes. Thank you, Jane. 🙂

  3. Sorry for the heat and humidity – last summer we had a terrible heat wave for three months, but luckily this summer has been great. Back to almost normal temperatures. Grateful.
