Southern Ontario is in for a doozy of a storm over the next 36 hours. Chuck and I spent a couple of hours after lunch today raking up leaves and cleaning out the eavestroughs.
The last couple of nights the Hunter Moon has been clearly visible in the night sky. I took the photo above on Sunday night. It was very clear.
I took this photo last night. Rather cloudy.
After we cleaned up outside I filled all the bird feeders as I knew the birds, squirrels and chipmunks would want to fill up on food before the storm. Silly squirrel was doing a Snoopy on top of the bird feeder.
Many junco's around eating up.
The goldfinch was eating all alone on the niger feeder when the woodpecker decided to join him.
One of the baby squirrels enjoying some sunflower seeds.
Chippy was filling his cheeks and running back and forth.
The poor bluejay had to drink from a leafy birdbath. It is so hard to keep the birdbath clean this time of year. I clean it and ten minutes later it is full of leaves.
Everyone seemed to be eating companionably this afternoon.
The mourning dove decided to get some birdseed too.
I hope if you are in the track of the storm you are ready for it. I went and got a few groceries this morning and did a few loads of wash and hung them out on the line. I plan on catching up on some baking over the next couple of stormy days.
