It is lovely and sunny today but the wind is very strong and cold. We had some snow this morning and at times it was like being in a snow globe. The wind was blowing the snow around and around. It’s the perfect day to stay inside. November is coming to an end and winter is still making an appearance even though there is a month to go before it officially starts.
I recently made another batch of the all season suet I use. This time I used cardboard tubes cut about 6 cm or 2.5 inches high and filled each one before freezing. Then it is just a matter of peeling away the cardboard as these little tubes of suet fit nicely into the coil feeder.
The bluejays love this feeder and it doesn’t take them long to arrived after it has been filled and put outside. If you haven’t made the all season suet, you must give it a try, as the birds will flock to it.
The peanut feeder is visited by woodpeckers, chickadees, nuthatches and even the sparrows will chick it out from time to time.
The red bellied woodpecker has been visiting the peanut feeder. We saw him before the first storm a few days ago, and he has been back since.
The stumps of wood with their faces, known as the Stumpy Family, have been covered in snow from that first storm.
Enjoy watching the woodpecker as he eats the peanuts.
I’ve also been doing some reading, some knitting, some crochet and drinking cups of warm tea.
What do you do when it is too cold and snowy to go outside?
