Its been warm and overcast the past few days here in NC.
Monday we had our Thanksgiving day with Sicksta and Craigy. Craig was working at Pinehurst resort on Thanksgiving..and Jeff Sicksta and I pigged out at the amazing buffet there.
So we decided we still needed to have our family Thanksgiving together.
Sicksta and I made Molasses glazed Turkey, Sausage stuffing, Corn fritters, mash potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans and Craigy made the gravy. We had Pecan pie and whip cream for desert.
Jeff did the dishes.
Before and after dinner we sat around the fire and chatted.
Remember the Trees full of leaves…
They have fallen…..leaving a few hundred hickory nuts still hanging on the tree ready to fall.
Yesterday,after raking and blowing leaves…. Sicksta and I picked up at least ten bucket fills of Nuts and moved them to another area so we wouldn’t fall and break our necks on them. OUCH
Flocks of Robins and Cedar waxwings have arrived..Gorging themselves on the holly berries…
Stopping to drink out of the water dish I set up
In the video below you can get an idea how busy the holly trees are now…CRAZY With BIRDS!!!!!
Take out your Binos now and watch the video..
What birds to you see?
What birds do you hear?
Listen for the Cedar Waxwings, a Brown headed nuthatch and other birds.
Its been quite gray and I am finding it hard to get good photos..Will keep trying.
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
