New Year’s Eve day…. lets get ready to party:
Want to sit on the patio and have a drink?
Want to throw some shrimp on the barbie?
This is the kind of day it is outside. I vote for another jammie day. I am staying inside, looking outside, and maybe we can have some appetizers and hot chocolate by the fire later. Instead of sewing or quilting today, I spent the ENTIRE day going back and forth from window to window, from one end of the compound to the other…. getting my exercise by watching the birds at the feeders. Oh happy day! I love this kind of day.
I am happy to share with you …. and remember, you can click on any photo to enlarge it.
The birds found the bird balls within an hour of Steve hanging it up for me. This is a nighthawk and a chickadee.
Here is a woodpecker and a nuthatch I think. Maybe it is a titmouse? I dont know.
Another woodpecker. We have lots of them, all different kinds and sizes.
Here is my showoff. A male cardinal. He poses for me often.
And this is his beautiful girlfriend.
This bluejay doesn’t sit still for long. Pretty hard to ever capture him in a photo.
This next one….. I was sure I was seeing things….
I thought I saw a hawk in a lower bush. That’s weird, they normally perch fairly high up in a tree. I watch hawks every day of the year, so this was amazing to me. I grabbed the camera, zoomed in and took the shot. I only got one, because he was taking off as I shot this.
And what a surprise! It is some kind of owl. Not sure what kind.
Tonight we are staying home, off the roads and having our own little party with just the 2 of us. We like quiet and uneventful.
Wherever you are, and however you choose to celebrate (or not), have a safe and happy New Year.
