So jealous! I’m not getting very many visitors yet here.
Since we are having a heat wave… it’s up to 3F… the birds are really out and eating.
It’s amazing how relative — to what one’s accustomed to, apparently — is the perception of temperature, by both humans and birds, evidently.
The high temperature here yesterday was 22 F — the coldest day in recent years that I recall — and it seemed almost unbearable.
Years ago, where I lived in Wisconsin a January day at 22 F would have been typical, and would not have seemed cold at all.
Indeed, after a record several-day cold spell when the high temperature one day was -16 F, the next day when it soared to 5 F, I saw people out basking in the warm sun without coats. (Really!)
The weather here is a balmy 19 F this afternoon. Yesterday a colleague commented that when it warmed up 30 degrees, we’d think it was warm at + 8 F.
Good that the birds all have something to eat. Love the photo shoots.
Yay for the little Pine Siskin… keep eating, little birdie!
I had to put on a sweater this morning, because it was only 62F when I got up. Fortunately, it has warmed up since then.
I occasionally miss snow, but after a week and a half in eastern Washington state during Christmas, I was pretty happy to come back to my apartment that has neither heat nor AC, and doesn’t need them.
I’m happy to see the little Pine Siskin. Thanks for the photos, Father, they’re just lovely!

Henry Edwards : How true, how true. In summertime your home is 62° F and you’re “stylin'” ; In the winter your home is 62° F and you think the furnace is broken ! LOL !
Father, do you ever get cardinals (i.e., birds) at your feeder? They are frequent guests at ours, along with the finches, chickadees, blue jays, and the occasional grackle. It’s such a treat to see these colourful birds from the kitchen window. We’re just ending a vicious cold snap, and today was the first time in days that the temp. has crept above zero (F). Thank God for bringing us through this week! I love the photos of the birds too — my Dad was a bird lover, and I’m sure he’d spend many hours watching them if he were still around. Thanks for sharing these lovely snaps of our feathered friends.
Love the pictures of the birds, Father….it’s amazing they don’t fly away from you!
