Got busy with the Nikon;

The nuthatch has become my favorite feathered friend. And, I've been told they're the only birds that walk down a tree.


The chickadee, a favorite close second, seem to hesitate in giving me a profile


Both chickadee and nuthatch are very personable, and can easily be hand fed


But the stellar jays sometimes steal the show...and the food


and seem rather inquisitive

Great photos GaryO! Stellar Jays are my favourite. We like to name all the birds that come to our front porch for food.

There's: Peggy - a one-legged stellar jay, Prince Harry (a hairy woodpecker), Frodo (a small downy woodpecker), Ant Eatie (a red-shafted flicker), Sassy (the bravest stellar jay that occasionally eats from my hand), Casper (a grey jay aka. camp robber, aka. whiskey jack), and Wendy (Casper's friend who is also a grey jay). I suppose that's what happens when you have too much time on your hands. *LOL*

Looks like you had a great Christmas. I love winter but I'm not that crazy for a lot of snow. Picky I know! You have a lot of snow.

Yeah, I s'pose we'll be ready for the hot sun by May.

and if we still have snow by June (it happens here), well, we won't be crazy for it much either....we'll be just plain crazy.

As for now, we're enjoying every moment of it.

Thing is, in winter, things can be, and are, precarious.
The moments of 'we got this' are rather fleeting.

Beats hell outta the complacency of town, though.

For me anyway.

Beautiful photos, Gary!!! You have such interesting birds!!!

The top photo of the nuthatch looks very much like a bird I became very fond of when visiting friends in England. They're adorable, acrobatic, smart little birds. So much so that they figured out how to get into the milk bottles delivered by the milkmen in London so the dairy companies had to change the caps!

These birds are called tits! That nuthatch looks like the great tit. Now, you can imagine my surprise on my first morning in England when I heard my friend exclaim from her garden, "Oh, our tits are being very cheeky today! Julie-Anne, come here and have a look!" Hahahahahaha! Of course, explanations were in order and we've laughed about it many, many times since.

But they've become my favorite birds there. They come in different varieties and colors. There are great tits, blue tits, bearded tits, marsh tits, coal tits, and others. Little collectible figurines are made of them in English china and my friends have bought me some for Christmas and such.

The puns abound. It's rather fun to see the expressions on people's faces when I or others tell them that I collect tits, hahahaha!

Hahahahaha! We shall see! It should be fun! When I first saw the top photo, I immediately thought, "Wow, that looks like a great tit!" And then I thought, "Hmmm, should I share that observation and explanation? Oh, what the heck!"

Yeah, they're out there, but I rather enjoy creating from within.
Thing is, I've backed waaaaay off on the edgy, questionable stuff here.
Not the site for that.
No sir.


......and I'm quite fond of being here.

Hahahahahaha! As my English friends would say, "Oh, well done, you lot!"

I'll own this one if the powers-that-be have concerns. I sometimes wish I was born in the land of Shakespeare and Monty Python -- the Britons have such a delightful sense of humor and wordplay! As the person who named these birds must have.

Oh, I LOVE Peppa Pig!!!!! I will confess to watching it without a small child, lol. I first saw it in England when my friends' granddaughter was watching it, haha. I was surprised to later find it on American kid stations!

thank you, hattie


Dawn, twenty sixteen

our year

our first full year

gonna be a good one
we have the grit and determination for it
we've tasted of the main course

the path is clear
oh, it won't be easy
haven't asked for easy
don't expect it

sure, we had our failures, misjudgments in 2015
But they've been few
And we've learned by them

I know y'all will have a great year, each and every member

Know why?

Yer here

It's where small cabin folk dwell


We'll record our events of twenty sixteen
The good
The bad
....and the beautiful

Thank you, everyone, for the encouragement along the way

That's whut I'm sayin'!!

If I wuz serious all the time, well, it'd be forgetful blather

But,

like a fine dessert,

you vividly recall that rare occasion of a strawberries Arnaud

I shall now stroll outside, gaze at the firmament

...and ponder

...thoughts for 2017

(are we really out of strawberry jam?)
