Sweet Blues

The weather today was simply gorgeous. A perfect early Winter day in the south. Everything was moving and flying about when I got home from work, except my fish. They’re water was still too cold from the 29F degree morning and they were still as…well as fish in cold water. lol

It’s been a looong week at work and we only have 2 weeks left before Christmas Break. Woo-Hoo!! Plenty of time off for bird watching. In the meantime I noticed the bluebirds are still around, as well as a few woodpeckers and pine siskins. The Mockingbirds are starting to frequent the cat food more often too.

Wait that’s not a bird…it’s a plane! (sorry I couldn’t resist lol)

And when you have good weather, you naturally have good sunsets.

I wish you could have heard me over here, Kimmy. First I was reading and thought, oh no, don't tell me the fish died -- but they didn't. Then I see the bluebird and think how pretty he is and wonder why I haven't seen any here. Then the woodpecker and the plane, and THEN, I'm surprised you didn't hear me all the way over there. I said OMGGGGGGGG! If I hadn't seen that sunset with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it, Kimmy! Unbelievable shot! Best sunset I ever saw, wowwwwww. XOXOXO

What a beautiful Bluebird! They are quite rare in my area and tend to be very skittish and uncooperative when I try to take a picture. Mockingbirds are also rare here and I have only seen one.
