COLD!!! That is the word here!
But I can see snow on Grand Mesa and the San Juan’s I can’t see the Black Canyon or the Gunnison area because of fog. Just a slight amount on the top of the Plateau. It is supposed to warm up by 10* today and then we go into a slightly warmer period for a few days before another storm hits this weekend.
As long as it is snowing in the mountains I’ll live with the cold.
We have a flock of House/English Sparrows which have decided to make our farm home for the winter…Sparrows and Ring-necked Doves. As these two different flocks of feathered friends have grown all other birds have abandoned us. (We still have the Sand-hill Cranes and the Canada Geese, and the black birds, but they are in the fields, these are right with us in the farm house area.)
They are everywhere. The Ring-necked Doves have the house and yard, the House/English Sparrows have every remaining building and shop area.
The flocks are growing daily. I am not feeding them. They could go down to the feed lot 2 miles away, except the Starlings left (YIPPEE) as these two groups started taking over going down to the feed lot.
I would much rather have what we have than Starlings. I am NOT a Starling fan.
The bushes and the trees are filled with twittering little and big birds…and also the accompanying poop!
Sort of on the rather nasty mess side.
Well, back to my regularly scheduled work!
