Meanwhile…Back in North Carolina…

Howdee all,

Back in North Carolina…

I am not there now…but I was..

Proof here in Homeys tire…

Birds Carthage_023The squirrels are still there…and most likely still stealing nuts from the pile Jeff was cleaning…seems the squirrels like the convenience..of hulled hickory nuts.birds carthage feeders_007The nut pile wasn’t meant for the squirrels, Jeff was cleaning them for my parents..we were to take some back for their squirrels who wanted a few nuts for Christmas….We did take some to Ct..birds carthage feeders_017That’s where we are now…

But these Purple finches are still in North Carolina..

birds carthage feeders_008And so is this Towhee..Yes…the white stuff is snow..birds carthage feeders_009A dusting a few days before we left for our Christmas Road trip.birds carthage feeders_016The squirrel didn’t care about the snow…he just wanted all the nuts Jeff had carefully hulled.birds carthage feeders_019After the freeze and snow I put out extra bird seed…the wine bottle is another story..

I wanted to set the empty bottle out by my stairs to bring to the trash later…but..

it slid about six feet on the icy snow…..and landed near the bird seed.birds carthage feeders_037The Cardinal didn’t seem to care about having any wine…birds carthage feeders_031Neither the Downy Woodpecker..it much preferred the nut butter.Birds Carthage_082And so did the White-breasted nuthatchBirds Carthage_086I wonder if ..the Purple Finches are still hanging around…Birds Carthage_108I am sure the Goldfinch are there..I left the feeders full.Birds Carthage_071The Pine Siskins stopped in when the cold weather came..I wonder if they will still be around when we get back..birds carthage feeders_001

Will find out in a week or so…But until then..

I am not there…Birds Carthage_022

We have arrived in Connecticut..and we will be spending Christmas here..

Maybe I will take a few photos in CT..or maybe I will take a blogger

<<<Vacation>>>

If I don’t post again before Christmas…

To all my Friends and Family that celebrate..

A Very Happy Christmas to you all!

If you you need nuts come to my house on Christmas day. My entire family will be present. Oh and nice excuse about the bottle on the ice. Really.... if you get the munches while drinking wine cheese and crackers is probably more appropriate. Come on now Dawn..stop stealing the bird seed.
Happy holidays to you and yours. Tucker

Merry Christmas to you Dawn, hope you have a fabulous time.
Looks like the birds and Squirrel were really tucking into their festive fare, but I did not realise they celebrated with a drop of wine at Christmas too.
