Good Morning, Everyone!
As often happens, I had a completely different post planned for today but when I was putting the camera away this morning something caught my eye.....
I spotted this little guy out my living room window....he was planning his attack on the flat feeder to steal the peanuts!
(These photos were all taken through a
very clean not so clean window so please excuse the quality!)
He's awfully cute, isn't he? As long as he doesn't come into the house we will get along just fine!
There he goes, up on the back of the chair....
Scurrying up the feeder pole.....boy, he's quick!
And he's in!! Can you see him?
Back out again, quick as a flash, holding his treasure!
Oh boy, look how lucky he is with a big peanut to munch on for breakfast!
And.....just like that? He's gone!
But he'll be back. The flat feeder gets a fresh supply of peanuts in the shell every morning before I go to work....and every afternoon when I come home it's empty. This is the first time I've been able to get photos of the little bandit - usually as soon as they see movement through the window they take off running!
I spotted a Blue Jay this morning having his breakfast there, also...but no photos of him just yet, he was far too quick for me. Now that they have found the feeder it will be a busy spot. It will sure be nice to watch the birds and critters out the window in the winter months from my cozy chair next to the warm fire.
It won't be that long until the first fire is lit....do you see how the leaves are changing in my garden? The heat wave has passed with the rainstorm last night (yayyy!) and the cool weather is moving in - the leaves will change so quickly now and before you know it the trees will be a kaleidoscope of color!
Which means it's time to decorate for fall....double yayyyy!!
Have a happy day, friends!
