Day 56 - 25th February 2013 - Birds, Sheep and A Donkey

Back to Monday and the work week for most folks. How do the weekends go by so quickly? Feeling rather Zombie like this morning but hoping it passes pretty soon. Shake it off and keep moving, right! Some more of that database entry - hopefully I'll finish that off today. Some research to work on that I'd like done before Wednesday, since the weather is looking decent I'm sure Lexi and I will be around the hood more than once today. Exercise class this evening - thank goodness.
Sunday was grey and rather overcast all day. Waited for snow but it didn't show up so we got some things done. Larry had some burning to do and wood to put in. I did some database entry for a friend, hopefully can finish that up today. Went up the road to my Uncle's as you can see the sheep and donkey below then drove down to the river as someone had said the lone Canada Goose was there earlier, no sign of him but there were a pair of Common Mergansers and a pair of Hooded Mergansers, too far for great photos unfortunately. Larry got his WHMIS course done on line, we cooked a turkey which was excellent. So nothing terrible earth shattering, just a nice Sunday.
 White Breasted Nuthatch - think he's practicing to walking the tightrope!
 Sheep on the farm.

 The Chickadees were so busy today, surprised this one stopped long enough for me to get a pic.
So this is Winkles the donkey who stands guard over the sheep keeping them safe from coyotes.

 A partridge [ruffled grouse] all puffed up on the side of the road.
The apple tree was full of Red Polls and Goldfinches yesterday morning.

Am on my second coffee but it doesn't seem to be helping! Enjoy your day!

  1. Love that photo of the Redpolls and Goldfinches in the tree together! So colorful on a drab winter day!
