Factoring in the wind chill, tomorrow will feel like minus 32! Lloyd and I will not be venturing out. We’ll put the fireplace on and listen to Pastor Doug Searle on Bonaire. www.bonaireibc.org. Have you heard anyone with such a listenable style and original content? John thoroughly enjoys attending this church. He and the pastor often go scuba diving together.
Here in Kitchener, Ontario, November through January was practically winterless. Without snow, the camera simply had nothing to do—only leafless trees and bare ground outside. In fact, it sulked in the rocking chair by the window so long that its batteries ran down.
However, I scooped it up pretty fast this afternoon when I saw this:
The hawk must surely have been hungry, as the next thing he did was hide in a low branch of the pear tree. How he thought he could get out quickly enough from the thicket of branches to catch anything is beyond me.
Maybe he also decided it wouldn’t work. Soon he flew out and soared away. I hope his GPS gets a short circuit! I hope that he completely forgets how he got to this bit of bird sanctuary, don’t you?
Mr. Cardinal is a frequent visitor, brightening up Cedar Hollow whenever he comes by for lunch. Normally a ground feeder, he has found the pan catches delicious sunflower seeds, and he doesn’t have to go about foraging. Fast food at McDonalds! Of course!
