Yesterday it was warmer, so the snow mostly melted. There was still some in shady places, but mostly, it got gone. That’s good, because it was a little strange to see guineas on the windowsills.
I’m used to seeing cardinals, and English sparrows, and Tufted Titmice, and a lot of other wild birds, but I don’t usually see a dove sitting on the windowsill.
I guess their usual feeding places were covered in snow.
The chickens and the guineas hated the snow. HATED it. They didn’t want to get down and walk in it, so the chickens stayed in their roosting areas, and the guineas just flew from tree to tree, or to fenceposts.
Now they’re all out and about again, so things are back to normal. Well, as normal as it ever gets around here.
So now after a beautiful sunset last night. . .
We’ve got a dreary, rainy day. But it’s warmer. And the snow is almost all gone… still a little in those shady areas of the woods!
In the south, liquid precipitation is much, MUCH better than solid precipitation!!!
