Feeding the blue jays

I bought this spring peanut feeder just for my blue jays. Too bad they have not taken to it, even after months of it hanging on the porch.

So I adapt and put the peanuts out where they want to eat.

Maybe they will discover the hanging spring peanut feeder eventually.

I always thought blue jays were smart birds. They have proved me wrong.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Sandhill cranes

An early morning walk down the farm lane brought me close to these two.

I love the sound of sandhill cranes. They are so prehistoric.

The sun hadn’t touched them yet, but they were walking and talking at this early hour.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Swans arrive

Spring migration is going strong. Swans have stopped on the farm and in other parts of the Seymour area.

They are far away from the road so I walked down the lane and zoomed in on these white visitors.

They come and they go.

The swans are signs of spring, even when snow is predicted to fly this evening.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

A helping hand

My daughter Rebecca visited today and took the blower to the porch gutters.

This very short video shows her at work.

Rebecca had to crawl through a window to get to this location. A tough job but better than using a ladder.

Thank you so much for your help, Rebecca. Too bad there are still more leaves on the maple tree.

Until next time, that’s it from Sunnybook Farm.
