It's a stormy, blustery, snowy day. It's suppose to rain about noon, then turn to snow again. Himself decided to finally take the new camera out of the box this morning. As it came with it's own battery and charger I mentioned that the battery may need charging. I asked to look at the basics manual and it did say that the battery would need charging first. I told this to himself as he was inspecting the camera. I could see he was getting agitated already just holding the camera in his hands. He says between gritted teeth and in as loud a voice as he could muster, "I don't need the battery charged." I say "But..but..you can't operate the camera with out the battery in it." Said he, "I'm not going to operate the camera until I learn all about it." lol, lol, lol, lol, to tell the truth, I had to walk away before I burst out laughing. Sigh! best to leave the dear man alone me thinks.
As I mentioned, it was pretty stormy earlier this morning. Once it was light I noticed a few little Juncos trying to get down through the snow on the platform feeder to find food. Nothing for it but to bundle up and go out with brush and containers of seed. I could hardly stand up at times as the wind was almost blowing me over and with that, snow beating in my face. Anyway I managed to fill feeders and it wasn't long before birds started arriving. Yesterday morning there were six woodpeckers on one tree just outside the bathroom windows. The crows arrived and they were chasing each other doing acrobatics around, over and between the trees. What a sight. They are so competent. Then they had breakfast and left.
The only picture I have today is this one taken this morning of a woodie and the boreal chick a dee.
