It is 26 degrees at our place this morning. Yes, it does get pretty cold in North Central Texas during the winter. There's some frozen precipitation to the south west that may move our way later this morning.
I put seeds on the ground out front and out back for the juncos and dove. Some of the other birds prefer to eat off the ground also. The cardinals are already feeding on suet. It is said that when a cardinal visits you, it is a loved one saying hello from heaven. I have a pair that visit every day. There are three male woodpeckers, two hairy and one downy. I think the two hairy woodpeckers will eventually fight it out for territory. Right now, they are happy to share the suet since it is spaced out in five to ten foot intervals. There's a feeder just outside my office window that is a hit with the Carolina wren. They don't have to share it with the other birds. There are four dove fighting over a foothold on a feeder that is really designed for cardinals. They are large dove and it is an 8" ring. They have to sit on it sideways.
I fixed Stan French toast made from a really long slice of French bread this morning with sausage and orange sections. He ate and is still in bed happily watching the news and Olympics.
I took Walter chocolate chip cookies yesterday afternoon. He wanted to know how to make the oatmeal cookies I made a week or so ago. I came home and told Stan I need to make him a couple of dozen oatmeal.Well, off to a busy Sunday.
