The weather is still being weird – sleet, snow, rain, ice, sunshine following one another randomly.
And today when I threw the birdseed out the backdoor onto the patio (usually I put some in this feeder and then that, place this kind of food here and that cracked corn there), it bounced off the ice on top of the thick layer of snow. Have never seen that before.
And a while later, while I was looking at blue jays scarfing up the peanuts…I saw a chipmunk dashing around the edges looking for his big chance. In February? Never have I seen chipmunks awake in February.
The birds have been chittering early, early in the morning, telling me it’s spring. I have paid no attention. Now a chipmunk is giving me the same message? While there’s ice all over everything? And no good news in the weather forecasts?
Last week, I saw geese in their V formation flying north. None of this computes. Wonder what weird messages the wild family will give me tomorrow……
