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)

Watching nature @ it's best just makes being "homebound" helps make it worthwhile (sometimes)

Hi @glgraham, Welcome to Connect! Nature does have it's way of providing a lift to your spirits…you just have to look for it. It's fun watching deer, nice photo!

I'm feeling very blessed that I was able to take these 2 photos this morning though the glass of my patio doors (without having to go outside)! There's a small creek nearby that birds frequent for a "snack" (minnows).

Really great shots! @user_ch32491d1. I would have my chair sitting right in front of the patio door 😊

-19 degrees outside, the bird feeder is a runway today. They land, grab something to eat and fly away pretty quick.

Even our squirrels are hiding today! Not a bird in sight either.

@johnbishop @sueinmn This morning we have robins, stellar jays, chickadees, starlings, and varied thrush [really! somehow this one got off course!] examing the digging I did yesterday. I hear the kestrels have started their nest again, and in the tree across the street, the hawk is nesting. Eagles are cruising the valley, looking for a nesting site near the creek. Bambis in the backfield, with evidence of fox. Canadian geese flew a formation of about 20 over us a few minutes ago.

Brrr to everyone in mid-west and eastern areas of US!
