Merry Christmas and happy holidays! It’s also a Friday, which means it’s time to peek at the flock.
Literally — peeking through the nesting box at a duck in their house:
Some ducks eating from the feeder tube:
Rainy night ducks:
Ducks on the lawn:
Several are sleeping, with their heads tucked against their bodies, while others are on watch:
Bert flapping his wings:
The chickens waiting to greet me in the corner of the veggie garden:
Looking through the fence separating the new and old runs (there’s a chicken-sized doorway connecting them):
Coming through that doorway to receive treats:
Pictures of hummingbirds, some of which were previously posted on my personal blog, some new ones:
Scattering when the dog approaches:
On a rainy day, the chickens tend to hang out in the coops; here some are on the new roosts:
A few hours later, the hummingbird feeder level is looking much lower; I had to refill it an hour or so after this:
Another day, the sugar water was partially frozen, due to subfreezing overnight temperatures; I haven’t put the heating pad on it yet, since it is warming up during the day, but probably will soon:
Stay tuned for a video from the pond, to be posted shortly.
