There are a few things this January 1 that are strictly for the birds as far as I’m concerned, not the least of which is the blizzard that has been barrelling down on Nova Scotia for almost 24 hours now, causing whiteouts and drifting snow. Some areas have received up to two feet of snow, while here in the Annapolis Valley, we got close to a foot. The blizzard warnings are in effect for the overnight hours and will hopefully settle to a dull roar tomorrow — my daughter and family are supposed to come from New Brunswick tomorrow and we’ve so looked forward to their visit, I’d hate to see it postponed for bad weather.
Also for the birds is the wretched cold I’ve had for most of the holiday week. It has progressed to the stage where one is left with a dry, hacking cough and I’ve coughed so much, I have a permanent headache. :-p I hate colds!
On a much brighter note, however, is the lovely little birdfeeder that Charlie gave me for Christmas. It’s made of hammered copper with glass inserts, and it wasn’t more than a couple of hours before our feathered friends discovered it.
Below are some of our regular visitors.
