What's outside of your picture window today?

Posted by John, Volunteer Mentor @johnbishop, Nov 25, 2020

As we get ready for the real winter to show up and COVID-19 still playing a major part in our lives I like to spend moments of my day de-stressing about what's going on in the world today. All I have to do is look out the window and observe some of natures beautiful creatures, how they interact and ponder how small it makes my troubles seem. Sometimes I may even get the opportunity to take a photo or two. How about you? Anything going on outside of your window(s) that you want to share?

For those members that have the ability to size your photos before you upload them to the discussion, may I suggest using the following sizes:
– 500 x 335 pixels (landscape)
– 210 x 210 pixels (square)

Good morning world! I'm putting out a call for anyone that needs a little distraction from all of life's major problems (hey! minor ones too…). As the sun shines or not where you live and you look out the window, see any of nature's wonders you want to share to help us get through the day? @mkjames, @user_ch32491d1, @bern1958, @liz223, @grannybrenda, @kismet85, others … extra credit for rock gardens and critters 😊

My photo is a bald eagle flying away late this afternoon on an overcast day in Maryland. Eagles don't come around much in the summer (because they don't like people). Now that the weather is turning colder and less people are around, I've been seeing one or two almost every day for the past week or so. I love seeing them!

Nice photo! @user_ch32491d1, They are certainly magnificent when they are gliding in the sky.

In Central Kentucky I can stay inside to enjoy the last of the brilliant red leaves under a gloomy sky before the winds arrive.

Thank you, @user_ch32491d1, for sharing this wonderful photo of the incredible bald eagle in flight! We do not have them in my area and it must be a thrill to seem them frequently.

What a lovely sight to view from your home in Kentucky, @rosemarya!

This fall I had two large holly bushes removed from my courtyard. They were obstructing the view from my front windows. Since their removal, it has been a breath of fresh air to view the arching front trees and U.S. flag flying from a neighbor's garage across the street.

Looking out my window at my new bird feeder and the cleanup crew on the ground. It's a beautiful sunny day at 31 degrees with a high of 50 today…woo hoo!

@johnbishop, Yay for the sunny and warming day! Really like your snowman birdfeeder!

Larger birds are clearing one bird feeder daily and I'm wondering if that is due to the severe drought we've experienced or if the word of a neighborhood "feast" is spreading? Regardless, I'll be in the market for more bags of birdseed soon and both squirrels and birds will be entertaining Precious and me at the picture window.

Thank you! I never get tired of watching eagles. One day last winter, there were 12 nearby at the same time…..what a delight!

Love your bi-color squirrel – we have a mixed-breed buddy who has the red color on the top of his tail – al the way to the tip. Maybe because he is different, all the other squirrels treat him as the boss. Whenever I fill my squirrel-proof feeders, I toss a scoop on the ground for them.
My grandson loves to watch squirrels & count their nests on our walks. Wednesday we found 21 nests just walking around his block.
