Ides of March

Written on March 19, 2019 at 1:58 pm, by

The ides of March are upon us. The winds continue to blow. I think most everyone is anxious for the March winds and a few sunny days to firm up the country roads. If we could only recover all the rock from the grader ditches and magically blade those roads even when they are super […]

Weather is the topic of conversation that we hear so much about. Here in Texas, the weather has been on a tail spin all month. It has been really cold, some days hot and humid, others rainy, and some windy. Mother Nature is having emotional problems this year. So much change and variables.  I’m sure […]

Wren Houses

I’m sure with the ice that has been keeping those kiddies home and some home from work is getting old.  I know the kids went back to school on February 13th at least in some places.  I can remember going to school on Saturdays one winter after a huge ice storm that left trees heavily […]

Hungry birds

This week’s weather… it is not nice to bring it up. I can imagine for those of you who wish to stay in with your children, or just home period, it has been quite the time. I mentioned fun crafts to my daughter, but I think they chose to bundle up and go out in […]

Snow birds

As I sit here writing this article, it is once again snowing. I love the birds that come to my feeder.  Especially the last two days, I have had tons of every kind of bird. I really enjoy all of these. Somehow, the Startlings and the House Sparrows have made their way someplace else. The […]

Snow, snow and more snow…

Snow, snow and more snow.  Let’s just say, I think we are having winter here. I love to look out, but definitely not go out. I have to say it has helped my bird watching. I have lots of Blue Jays. They are very over bearing, and bossy.  I love their color and hate their […]

Happy New Year to all my readers.  2018 went quickly.  Its really hard to believe that it is 2019.  I will strive to make 2019 better than 2018 with many goals.  Take more time to do things I enjoy.  Be more productive, less time on cell phone, and more time with family and friends.  I […]

Christmas Trees

It’s that time of year when you either already have your tree up, or wanting to take a trip to a local tree farm and get one.  What fun it is for the kiddos to go tree shopping. All those candy canes and watching them shake the dead needles off the tree, excitement. There are […]

Busy Feeders

Good Morning bird watchers. The feeders have been busy this past week.  Woodpeckers, Nuthatches,  Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, Black Capped Chickadees, Brown Creepers. These birds are great to watch, along with the Juncos of winter.  I have a Downy and a Red-bellied woodpecker that spend a lot of time at my feeder. They are always […]

Today as I look out, with rain speckled windows, the weather is gloomy, and I have had a few winter birds at my feeder. It is Black Friday, and for many this means running from store to store trying to find a “bargain”.  Is it really a bargain?  I did venture out to Shopko in […]
