Down to the Cove we went but didn't get out of the Jeep because of the freezing winds. Quick stop at Walmart and we were home again.
With snow squalls periodically coming in off the lake Pheebs and I headed off to Goderich. Roads were snow-covered and visibility wasn't too bad. Snowing and blowing one minute, clear the next.
JUNCO YES IT IS AS COLD AS IT LOOKS ROCKY SHORELINE

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A kindergarten student was having trouble putting on his boots and asked his teacher for help. Even with her pulling and him pushing, the boots still didn't want to go on. Finally, they got both boots on. She grimaced when the little boy said, "They're on the wrong feet." Sure enough, they were. The teacher kept her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on - this time on the correct feet. The little boy then announced, "These aren't my boots." The teacher sighed and pulled the boots off. The boy then said, "They're my brother's boots. My Mom made me wear them." The teacher felt like crying, but she mustered up the strength to wrestle the boots back onto his feet. "Now," she said, "where are your mittens?" The boy replied, "I stuffed them in my boots...."
A new hair salon opened up for business right across the street from the old established hair cutters' place. They put up a big bold sign which read: "WE GIVE SEVEN DOLLAR HAIR CUTS!" Not to be outdone, the old Master Barber put up his own sign: "WE FIX SEVEN DOLLAR HAIR CUTS!"
Oh good! A junco to lead off. And a plethora of fine photos to follow. (Oh geez. remember "alliteration" when you were in high school. Apparently it's lurking inside my brain. Sorry.) That last male cardinal is telling me to be quiet now.ReplyDelete
Great Photos all around.ReplyDelete
Can relate to the Teacher.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
Lovely photos of the Junco and the Cardinals. Thanks Al.ReplyDelete
I so love your bird pictures, I can hardly wait for the next day to read your blog and the pictures of course! Big fan from MinnesotaReplyDelete
Great photos. Never seen that many cardinals together. You must feed them well. I must say you caught the very essence of a cold winter's day. 😀ReplyDelete
I have never seen that many cardinals all together either WOW! That is fantastic.ReplyDelete
Being from the "cardinal state", I have never seen that many cardinals together. I might see one here and there during the cold winter months. Great photos. Sure wish you, Kelly and Pheebs were allowed to get to Arizona. I feel for ya in those kind of temps.ReplyDelete
Clearly, those bird are asking you to either let them inside, or turn up their outdoor thermostat! But don't feel bad, it was -24C this morning here in Alberta. Supposed to warm to above freezing this week though! Great closeups!ReplyDelete
That sure looks like a cold snowy day. But the Cardinals really stand out!ReplyDelete
