Winter has arrived at the Hoosier Country Home! We're enjoying balmy mid-20 F temperatures today, but all week long we've had single digit temps with sub-zero windchills. I know that some of you would thrilled to warm up to single digits, much less 20 something temps. The 26 degree temp made for a great opportunity to muck out the chicken coop and get some other outdoor chores done. I've been fighting some sort of bug for several weeks, so the warmer temps made it just a but easier.
We've got about 3 inches of snow on the ground with about that much more on the way. We've had lots of cardinals, finches, bluejays, woodpeckers, and junkos at the feeders, and I was hoping to sit outside and get a pic or two to share. Zyla the dog had other ideas.
Fine, I'll just come inside (knowing Zyla would come along) and get one through the picture window. since I'd been watching through the window before I went out to do the chores, that should be good. One Orpington had other ideas, which scared away all the bravest of the wild birds.
Oh, well. There a lot of winter left for getting pics. I make sure a nice selection gets into the blog. Good night, all.
