A dove with water droplets on its back, goldfinch, and red-bellied woodpecker. Tried to capture the cardinals, but missed them. 🙂 <3
We had rain all day yesterday and the day before. The birds were singing and eating in the rain.
But I was diligently revising A Billionaire Wolf Christmas. Managed to get through 260 pages yesterday. It didn’t take long to make the few minor changes, but I had to read the book all the way through to make sure I caught everything. Forty pages to go, then have to work on a couple of bear orders. 🙂 <3
Another wild winter first??? We have frozen snow/ice all over the grass, roofs still covered in snow, but I think it will get to 40 degrees and sunny, so it will probably all melt off. When we had snow after Thanksgiving, I didn’t know about it until I got up the next morning to take the puppies out. What a shock!
So this time, I was able to take pictures mostly from inside. Still too sick to spend a lot of time out in the cold, except when I have to take the dogs out. I caught the house wren on the feeder when it was sleeting. The mourning dove has a collection of ice on her back, and I was surprised to see goldfinches, so it was neat to capture them in the snowfall. It seemed the last two years, they came in February or March. The blue pictures were taken around 6 am before it was light out, and it was already sleeting. And I had fun trying to capture pictures of just the snow falling. There are still rosebuds waiting to open on my rosebush!
I have to begin writing Flight of the White Wolf promo blogs for it’s release in March. And I’m getting much closer to finishing Demon Hunter (teen book), so I’ll probably work on that until it’s done. I’ve promised it to my readers forever. 🙂
The birds stop coming to the feeders and that means something is wrong. So I check, yep, seed is wet and moldy again. So I clean out the feeder, don’t put as much in this time. The no-melt suet was completely gone. All the birds loved it. I couldn’t find it again, so I picked up berry suet and the birds are happy. But also, I tried apples and they didn’t appeal to anyone. So I cute up an orange. The birds like that.
So here is a bluebird, mockingbird, uhm, cardinals got into my tomato plants, dove,
and titmouse. A bluejay was there, but missed getting a picture. And the gold finches love the berry suet and the oranges.
And!!! A mockingbird was drinking from the new fountain. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the camera ready fast enough. But thanks to my friend, Donna, she said they will come. I just have to give things time. 🙂
Just like with writing. Have new hard drive. Hope this will solve all my problems!!
