Here on the Eastern Shore they have a saying that if snow hangs around,
it is waiting for more. And with the temps in the 20s, I was preparing for the next snow today when I happened to glance out the kitchen window and thought I saw a bit of blue where I seldom see any blue…
Forgetting my chores, I looked around the back yard and could not believe my eyes. Scattered around the yard were well over a dozen bluebirds (and spouses) sitting in the bushes,
on various perches,
and even on St Fwankie’s head!
So, I gave up since I had to go to work, but imagine my excitement when I came home and saw 11 of them and a few other little visitors gathered at the birdbath. For those of you who are new to my blog, that is a birdbath deicer in the water.
It is the most popular watering spot in town as it is the only unfrozen water out there. It is usually empty in the morning as the deer come to visit at night along with raccoons, possums, and the gray fox family.
